Nope. Sure synths can do a credible violin. But a pro will never be fooled.. No way in hell can something that nuanced be faked.

Maybe someone could 3-D print a new one.

“wonder if that sound can be synthesized.....?”
-—that’s an intriguing question I have been thinking about for years,initially starting with,say, an entire catallog of great performances by jazz piano masters digitized from records,or simply programmed into a type of high quality player piano. With a violin,the instrument that you’d of necessity be playing *yourself* would have to be programmed,I suppose, string by string,to produce the unmistakable tonalities of the Strad.The physical body of the instrument itself would almost be irrelevant., but would obviously have to be of “good quality” ,so that it wouldn’t undercut the production of synthesized sound.The whole idea of a “player violin” of course, is absurd.Might as well just listen to a CD.
