10 years later, am now using Tina Guo and Chris Hein Kontakt Cello libraries, but I thought I'd re-download this for the arsenal. . .It's more like how I think about cello when I start writing. . .

I came across this completely by chance. I'm a composer and find it hard to get great VST strings that aren't $500 per VST or Library. CELLOFAN IS A HIT! The realism in the sound is well crafted.. AMAZING

This is a good cello, but it only works on the left side of my headphones. Maybe it needs 64 bit support?

Try putting the audiofile in mono and then putting that file where you want it to in the final mix (if thats stereo of course)

This is super late and you most likely don't need this anymore but for anyone who does, I used the "C* Narrower - Stereo image width reduction" effect to fix this. Set the dial thing to about 0.846 and you'll hear it from both sides.

A very high frequency that overpowers the cello sound and hurts the ears. Doesn¨t work properly on my LMMS.

For some reason, this plugin causes crackling noise when I use it in LMMS. Otherwise, it works fine with LMMS, just causes that annoying noise. What a shame, because the sound is very good and genuine!! Please fix it so I can use it in LMMS, thank you!

A good vst that I used when I worked in a 32bit environment. Nowadays I work in Cubase 9 64bit and this vst has been blacklisted. Too bad. I can use jBridge but I'll find something else. It sounded good for its purpose. Good job from the developer!

Good sound but the release has a hard time calibrating. Either the note is too long or too short. Good for its size and price.

Works great in Mulab5. Really is a nice little VST. The sound needs a bit of eq boost at the top end to bring out the richness, I love this little beauty :)

Sound is really good except for the high notes, which are of terrible quality. Overall would definitely recommend.

Works like a charm in Reaper 4.59+, Win7. A little bit of EQ and some reverb to give it depth, and it sounds great both solo'd and in the mix. Cellofan's note range is C1 to C5. Normal cello range is C2 to C6. I would like that extra octave, but it's not a deal-breaker. It sounds good in the mid-range, and that's what matters to me.

I can't seem to make this work. I can play the sounds by clicking the keys on the left side, but the roll notes almost don't exist! they are there, the lights go on, but no sound. The tone is amazing however, and this (if it worked) is a beautiful free vst.

Plays bass frequencies better than the high notes. and limited higher octaves.

Sounds good for basic use, does not play higher registers. In FL Studio, it keeps looping the first note that is used in a MIDI sequence and overlaps with the next loop played, building up the layers. There seems to be no way to stop this other than stopping playback.

You have to right-click your channel and press the option, "cut-itself", if in doubt, just google it!

Works great for me... Cubase LE AI 7 Elements 64-bit on Windows 7. Was looking for a cello that could do a somewhat believable legato... this does the trick.

One of my most used Vst. No problems whatsoever in Reaper or H. Seib's Vst Host, not even when using several instances.W ith some reverb added its sound is realistic and emotive. A great favourite for years now. Many thanks

With some effects this can actually sound pretty decent. Works just fine in FL Studio.

I'm having issues with the pitch sliding, it keeps sliding way lower/higher than the note I'm pressing. Am i doing something wrong?

Got a problem with it. I install it, it works fine - the first time. The second and subsequent times - no sound comes out of it. I've reinstalled it several times nnd it does this every time, no idea why. So GREAT sound - when it actually WORKS!

There is an issue with this plugin and the DSK AkoustiK KeyZ in lmms under Windows 7 64bit. It causes some weird noise/feedback in the right speaker when both plugins are active and the DSK plugin is played.

I have the same problem on Windows 8, but I'm not using the DSK plugin at all.

Amazing! Belive me or not, i've just installed EWQL Symphonic Orchestra, which is a realistic, great and paid VST (one of the best options for strings), and Cellofan proved, in a few moments, a better option for cello! Much better quality than i would expect from a free VST.

Hi Dudes. It really seems to be a very nice plugin, but i had some issues using it. Specially using the higher notes at same time with other notes. It sounds like a shake, a noise, don't know exactly how to explain. Did someone had the same issue? Fixed it? I saw someone talking about reverb, eq, tunning, how exactly do u changed this and made it better? Any help is very usefull, i'm kinda new with this things. I'm now using Fruity Loops 9.

Great plugin! the only complaint i have is that it doesnt make the slight pause of when the bow is pulled in the opposite direction at the end of a long note. Other than that, fantastic! A+

You can add the pause with a slight early release

Really awesome if I compare it to the cellosounds cubase has! Don't know what you're talking about, at least Cubase 5 can definitely handle it... Thanks a lot!

Simply amazing...I look around for VST's Every week to spice up my music and this...10 years in this business and I have never been so shocked at how good this FREE VST's can do. Ad the amount of wet on reverberation and it sounds concerto! Please continue making VST'S. ~~~A-Minor~~~

When i try to use this in cubase le 5, it tells me it only recognizes it as mono and it will be silent. can someone help me?

Great sound, just what I needed to create big bombastic string sections! With some external pitch shifting it sounds like upper-register string instruments too.

A little reverb and eq, and it really sparkles. Ignore those saying it sounds terrible. They are obviously inexperianced in music production. Put the work in, and it can sound fantastic.

It's a very good sound for how much CPU it uses (next to nothing). It sounds worlds better than I thought it would with the screen shot.
