About

Tina Guo has developed an international multi-faceted performance and recording career as a classical acoustic cellist, heavy metal electric cellist, erhuist, and composer. Her distinctive sound and improvisatory style have been featured in major motion picture, television, and game scores.  Taking her formal training from USC to new musical heights, she enjoys experimenting with a wide range of effects and digital processors, ever expanding upon her sound.

As Tina’s distinguishes herself most remarkably through her live musical performances, her numerous appearances on arena stages have naturally taken her around the globe to countries including Denmark, Greece, Sweden, Germany, Russia, Spain, Italy, France, Japan and the UK, among many others. She has lent her talent to live film and game attractions and television events such as the The Grammy Awards, American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, The Sundance and Tenerife Film Festivals, Comic Con and the League of Legends World Championship.

Her extensive credit list as a studio musician features acclaimed Hollywood scores such as Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Iron Man 2.  Tina’s cello work (acoustic and electric) can also be heard on major video game titles including Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Diablo III and Grammy-nominated (Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media) Journey, to name just a few. She is also very well known for her work in television music on Family Guy, The Mentalist, King of the Hill and more, as well as various commercials for United Airlines, Mazda, Apple iPhone and more.

Tina performs on her Gand & Bernadel Cello made in Paris, France in 1880. On electric cello, she plays a customized Yamaha SVC-210 as a Yamaha Performing Artist, and exclusively through ENGL amps. Tina also plays an Erhu made in Shanghai, China.

CINESAMPLES' ADAPTIVE LEGATO ENGINE

Cinesamples applied the legato engine from CineStrings SOLO True Legato patches to Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato. It allows you to tailor the legato response to your own playing style, and is designed to respond musically to your performance. The engine detects your playing speed and intelligently adjusts the interval speed to match. This means you can play slow, expressive lines and fast runs in a single performance, without touching the speed dial. Additionally, the intensity parameter responds to velocity. 

Playback

The Tina Guo Legato Patch does not require you to purchase any additional sample playback software, and is licensed to work with the Native Instrument’s free Kontakt Player.  All you need is a sequencer like Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, LIVE, Pro Tools, or Cakewalk, and you’ll be up and running.
