  • Voiceprint for violin

    I don't have a violin myself, but I'm curious how one should go about creating a voiceprint for one. Does the VPDI expect plucking? Or does some of the stages need percussive type approach? Or should one just use a bow after the initial tapping?

    I also work as an audio engineer, and there has been a couple of occasions lately where it would have been nice to voiceprint a fiddle. However there's seldom time to experiment, so I'd like to have an idea of what I'm doing when attacking someone else's violin :-D

    Hey Guitarune,
    I would recommend using the Advanced Voiceprint option in the app: [url][/url]

    If you go that route, you can use whatever method of playing you want to make your Voiceprint. If you set up the phone's mic like you would for a recording, you should be able to capture bowing, plucking, or whatever else you want to do for the Voiceprint. If you just want to bow, you can do that too. The advanced option doesn't limit you to the normal steps so that instruments like the Violin aren't tied to the same rules for Voiceprint creation.

    You can also check out these videos for some more info on getting a good sound from the Violin/VPDI.
