About the Product

We are excited to announce that Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato and Tina Guo now have the Infinite Bow feature found in all of our solo string products: Tina Guo vol 2, Taylor Davis, CineStrings SOLO, and Viola da Gamba.

By default, Tina's natural bow changes occur on sustained notes.  Use the sustain pedal or the green Key Switch before a sustained note to extend the bow length as needed.  This is understandably an unnatural occurrence, but it provides the necessary bow length required in slower tempi.  Simply re-attack the note when you need a bow change on the same note.

The v1.4 Infinite Bow update is available in new purchases of Tina Guo (FULL) and Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato.  Both require Kontakt v5.8.1 or higher.

*** Current customers of both products receive the update for FREE and have been sent a separate email with update instructions. This is a download and installation of the complete product. It is recommended NOT to direct the Connect Download utility to download and install in to your current Tina Guo folder!  Allow Connect to complete its entire install process. Then archive your current version for safety and copy this final installation folder on to your sample drive. 

*** If you purchased through Native Instruments, the update will be LIVE on Native Access the morning of 21 October 2020 Berlin time. ***

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.

First introduced as a part of our Artist Series - Tina Guo sound design library, the Acoustic Cello Legato patch has been available for individual purchase by popular demand! Featuring a brand new approach to legato programming in 2014 dubbed Seamless Legato, Tina's expressive solo acoustic cello performance was captured at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios and brought to you in the form of an accessible and intuitive legato patch.  Tina's signature sustain sound will easily blend within your string ensemble compositions as a featured instrument, and bring a fresh voice to your section.


v1.4 includes NKS integration for use with the Komplete Kontrol plugin, in addition to Kontakt Player 5.8.1+. The latest v1.4 update also includes the Infinite Bow feature. 

As of v1.2, the library has been updated with our Adaptive Legato engine that gives you control over the Speed and Intensity of the legato transitions between notes.
