I'm looking for a string set as or equivalent to the sound and tone of the video link above. Please Help!
"All for One And One for All"
Software exists to turn the audio from a pickup on most instruments into midi information that can then be used to drive a sampler or sound module or sound font, and you could probably get just about that sound from the right combination of those.
Or running the output of a mic or pickup on a violin through a compressor with the right settings could also come very close.
But FM is most likely correct and what you are hearing on that recording is probably a synthesizer and being played via a keyboard or a sequencer rather than an actual violin.

For sure that was just computer effects being played on a keyboard. I sure have been impressed lately though seeing more and more bands bringing in actual string sections. But if you want to take some shortcuts and sound digital there is a company called Native Instruments that are doing a pretty good job at mimicking real instruments.
LOL, denny, you crack me up. That's what my cheapass Chinese violin sounded like before I move the sound post and brige all over the place. That's why I mentioned that. Before I did that, I was getting ready to knock it apart and put the neck on an old cigar box I have. It's my primary violin now.
