Why do more antiquated bowed string instruments (such as the viola de gamba) have frets while modern orchestral strings do not?

I've been watching videos on string instruments from various periods, and I've noticed that a lot of 16th century strings have frets. Why have our modern string instruments forgone frets?

Strings for a bright instrument.

Hi all! Obvious disclaimer here: I know everyone’s playing style, bow, and instrument are different so don’t worry, I know this isn’t one size fits all. I’m just looking to play around a bit.

To make a long story short. My half sister apparently had the old violin in her basement for close to 30 years. It’s been in her family for generations, with the earliest record of it going back to 1915. It hadn’t been treated well, and had basically exploded. I took it to my luthier and had him restore it, for sentimentality’s sake, not expecting it to sound good at all. I recently purchased myself a new MJZ violin from a shop, and I love it.

Then I get the old violin back and, my god, it is incredible. I know nothing about it save it’s from Ireland, made some time before before 1915, and then immigrated to the USA with my half sister’s great grandfather.

Here’s the question:

Now, my new violin sounds super shrill to me. I use vision solos, but I am thinking I want to play around with something to tone down the brightness and add a little complexity.

What ball end strings are your favorite for this? Obligato? Helicore?

I play mostly fiddle tunes with some classical or americana if I’m sitting in. If you read this far - thank you for being patient.

Looking for a good reasonably priced strings library oriented towards solo/quartet instruments.

Hi all, I produce experimental electronic music and occasionally I feel the need to incorporate some more acoustic sounding elements into my songs. Right now, I'm working on a sort of minimalist song and I have a short strings passage in mind for two bowed instruments (probably violin + viola but maybe viola + cello, we'll see).

Anyway, I'm struggling to find a good VST library that's oriented towards individual strings/chamber or quartet arrangement. I really need something with a really dry sound with as little reverb as possible or it just won't work for this arrangement (I suspect some of you might be thinking "join the club" as so many of the VST strings libraries are absolutely baked in reverb, but I'm trying to be optimistic...). Ideally it would be something that can also produce a nice rich son file timbre that sounds like the performer is really digging in with the bow. The intro to Bjork's "Joga" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XATCQ_SGnw) is probably a good reference point for the kind of sound I'm after, although I have no delusions about being able to replicate the sound of a real live recording! It would also be nice to have a good amount of control over other parameters like vibrato and glissandos, and I'm not shy about going in and manually automating all those aspects in Ableton to get as natural a sound as I can.

I'm a college student so cheaper is always better, but don't hesitate to drop any recommendations for the highest-end stuff since I'm curious about what the bleeding-edge VST strings technology is these days. If the even high-end stuff can't do what I'm after, that'll be good information for me too so I can rework this arrangement for a different instrument. Thanks in advance!

When learning a string instrument is it important to start with an acoustic rather than electric?

I'm really interested in learning the cello and at first was going to learn the viola as a kind of bridge and wanted to ask if that was a good idea, but then I listened to the viola and I just prefer the cello's sound. No goals in mind, I just wanna play for myself. The only thing that's prevented me from starting is noise. I live in an apartment and am really conscious about the sound I make at any given moment so when I looked up how to be quiet while practicing, the internet lead me to electric cellos which got me so excited. Then I got a bit more specific in my search and, on another subreddit, it was heavily advised not to start out with an electric instrument so as to avoid developing bad habits. I guess I'm here to either be hit over the head with "they were right, get over making noise!" or "it doesn't matter either way, do you."

So yeah, will starting with an electric cello hinder me moving forward?

Edit: Acoustic it is. Thanks y'all.

Spitfire Audio offers a bunch of free Instruments (piano, strings, music box, etc.) in their "Labs" section

I discovered this awhile back. I found it while searching free instruments. I know they are pretty popular, but I figured not everybody knows about it yet. I really enjoy them.

I love their "soft piano" instrument as well as the strings. They all seem to work pretty well my Ableton Lite 10, so I figure they work decently with most DAWS. I used them to make some dramatic instrumental track and it was a lot of fun to work with.

The new string instruments have the least amount of input lag compared to all the other instruments, according to my own testing

I was trying to play some Christmas songs, and I found that I was consistently playing much better on the violin than on any previous instruments. I thought the violin had less lag but I wasn't sure, so I did some testing.

First, we need to understand that, there is an inherent lag between when you press a button and when the game receives the input. This is affected by your hardware and software environment and the game has nothing to do with it. For our purpose we ignore this lag.

Then, after the game receives the input, it needs to do some processing to determine what to do with it. This introduces the lag that we are intrested in. There are two parts to this lag, one is the lag between the actual button press and the sound being produced; the other is the lag between the actual button press and the button press showing up on the screen. I use the latter, which should be consistent across all instrument types, as a baseline for measuring the former. You'll see what I mean in the actual example.

I recorded the game at 60 fps and then took it into Premiere Pro for analyzing. Here are my findings:

Violin

https://preview.redd.it/orrpwkim7i561.png?width=2678&format=png&auto=webp&s=2107120cec74b8701e5a84ac423375781486e446

This here shows the first frame of the button press showing up on screen. The actual audio starts 7 frames before this. The viola, cello, and double bass show idential results of 7 frames, so I won't upload all their screenshots because that's a lot of work.

Harp

https://preview.redd.it/a2f1kc808i561.png?width=2689&format=png&auto=webp&s=5419da6f2673644f6a88002231ef77cbf3d48523

I've found the harp to have the worst lag among the instruments. The audio starts on the same frame as the button press showing up, which means it lags behind the violin for a total of 7 frames.

Saxophone

https://preview.redd.it/4bx1nuyr8i561.png?width=2710&format=png&auto=webp&s=2ea271424bbb5b84479a07ef6114a0fdfa167a31

The sax is a close second. 6 frames before button press showing up, so only 1 frame behind the violin. I didn't use the brass instruments much before but I guess I'll start using them more.

For results of the other instrument types, see this imgur album.

Conclusion

As stated in the title, the string instruments has the least amount of lag compared to other instrument types, with the brass only slightly behind. So if you are having a hard time playing son
