Synful updates Synful Orchestra to v2.5 beta
Synful has released version 2.5 beta of Synful Orchestra, a virtual orchestra instrument featuring Synful’s Reconstructive Phrase Modeling (RPM) technology.
Version 2.5 beta introduces a new instrument, the French Horn.
The new French Horn is the first fully expressive instrument to use our 2nd generation RPM Synful synthesis engine. The new French horn does not use Delay for Expression. Everything you play live is the final product. It is based on new 24 bit recordings which have been translated to a new generation additive synthesis format.
