Alder Cello

(5 customer reviews)


A solo cello library inspired by the ocean, its many moods, and the beauty of the shore off the coast of Ireland where Hometree reside, re-introducing bio-diversity to barren lands. Concentrating on highly expressive, evocative and unique playing techniques, ‘low tide’ represents the tidal movements of the ocean, ‘bristeacha’ the uncertainty and turmoil and many moods of waters. Performed by cellist Lidia Alonso and recorded by Adaq Khan in Soho, London. Described as a ‘gem’ by those who have used it so far, explore expressive, moving and inspiring cello textures with the Alder Cello. For every sale, we plant a tree.

"Instantly inspired, the Alder Violin and Cello have become an invaluable part of my template. Exceptional sound, rich in timbre, these stand out as something special."

Tom Linden - Film and TV composer

"Blown away, there's a beauty and musicality you've managed to instill here. Glad to have it on my new album."

Tom Middleton - Global Communication

"The Low Tide violin and cello patches are just glorious - you could score a scene with these alone. I find myself wanting to play these patches not as a traditional stringed instrument, but layering up intervals; the tone and expressiveness makes for a spectacular blend of real and unreal when played like that."

Guy Rowland - Composer

    Thank you for this wonderful cello instrument. Whilst I grabbed it during a sale, I must admit even at the full price it’s a steal. Many composers, and even those relatively new to working with samples, may have foundation type libraries that include a quality sampled cello or celli patches. However, with today’s modern approach to scoring, we often look for instruments that can add additional textural and or ambient elements not found in traditional realistic patches.

    The Alder Cello is a perfect example of an instrument that screams creativity. It’s simple to use, moreover, it’s beautiful and lends itself to almost any genre of music.

    This is a superb instrument and tremendously useful for a variety of music styles. In terms of it’s usability for modern scoring, it’s a no brainer. The textures are gorgeous and as a whole, this Cello provides a ton of inspiration.
