Sample Modeling releases Trombone 3 for Kontakt

Sample Modeling Trombone 3

Sample Modeling has announced the release of Trombone 3, a virtual trombone instrument created by Peter Siedlaczek and Giorgio Tommasini.

The Trombone 3 further expands Samplemodeling™ technologies. Multi-microphone anechoic recording allows to capture the original timbre of the instrument, along with its radiation pattern. Our proprietary “Harmonic Alignment” yields continuous transitions across virtually infinite dynamics. Specially devised “early reflections” impulse responses add proper virtual space to the anechoic sound.

The programming moves further away from conventional libraries, by exploiting physically-oriented modulation of the recorded sound. The result is a playable, very expressive virtual instrument retaining the rich, full sound of a real trombone.

Trombone 3 features

  • New Early Reflections algorithm.
  • Virtual Soundstage, including distance control.
  • Real time Timbral Shaping.
  • Microtuning.
  • Expression Mapping.
  • Breathy Attacks.
  • “For Unison Ensemble” Impulse Response.
  • Unison Ensemble Multi.

Trombone 3 (includes three Tenor, one Valve and one Bass Trombone) is available to purchase for 159 EUR. Trombone 1 owners can purchase the new Trombone 3 for 30 EUR.

In addition, all customers who bought the Trombone 1, whether alone or in a bundle, after June 30th 2013, are entitled to purchase the Trombone 3 for only 20 EUR. Prices excl. VAT.

Samplemodeling releases Oboe & English Horn virtual instrument

Samplemodeling Oboe & English Horn

Samplemodeling has announced the release of Oboe & English Horn, a SWAM engine powered virtual instrument created by Stefano Lucato and Emanuele Parravicini, in collaboration with Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek.

Oboe & English Horn utilizes Samplemodeling’s proprietary SWAM engine (Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling) developed by Stefano Lucato & Emanuele Parravicini.

Oboe & English Horn use samples as base material, chromatically performed by a professional player over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument. But the analogy with a sample based library ends here. The underlying, proprietary technology allows continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants. Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato, vibrato, squeak, overblow, ornamentations & trills, pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

The instrument is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX), priced at 149 EUR plus VAT. Samplemodeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount until November 30th, 2013.

Sample Modeling releases The Saxophones sound library

Sample Modeling has announced the release of its The Saxophones sound library, a collection of Bari, Tenor, Alto & Soprano saxophones.

Sample Modeling The Saxophones

The Saxophones utilizes Samplemodeling’s proprietary SWAM Engine (Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling) developed by Stefano Lucato.

The Saxophones use samples as a base material, chromatically performed by a professional player over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument. But the analogy with a sample based library ends here. The underlying, proprietary technology allows continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants. Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato/portamento, vibrato, overblow, ornamentations & trills with phase continuity, constant-formant pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

The Saxophones are supplied as a bundle of plug-ins for 32- and 64-bit Windows and Mac OS X in AU and VST formats for 259 EUR. Owners of any Sample Modeling saxophone library, purchased before January 21st, 2013, can purchase the new SWAM-based Saxophones package for 149 EUR before March 31st, 2013. Prices ex. VAT, if applicable.

Sample Modeling Soprano & Bass Clarinets

Sample Modeling has released its Soprano & Bass Clarinets sound library by by Stefano Lucato and Emanuele Parravicini.

Realistic, expressive, real time playable Virtual Clarinets? Yes, like all previous Samplemodeling Instruments, but exploiting a different technology on a proprietary platform, the SWAM Engine. The acronym stands for Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling, developed by Stefano Lucato.

The Clarinets use samples as a base material, chromatically performed by a professional player over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument. But the analogy with a sample based library ends here. The underlying, proprietary technology allows continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants. Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato/portamento, vibrato, overblow, ornamentations & trills with phase continuity, constant-formant pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

The sound library is available to purchase for 149 EUR +VAT if applicable. All Sample Modeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount until November 30th, 2012.

Samplemodeling releases The Trombone

Samplemodeling The Trombone

Samplemodeling has announced the release of The Trombone, a Kontakt 4 Player powered virtual Trombone instrument.

The Trombone family expands Samplemodeling™ technologies beyond the original limits. An entirely new class of Harmonic Alignment has been developed, allowing continuous transition across virtually infinite dynamics, at the same time perfectly preserving the peculiar, “spiky” waveform of this instrument. Multi-microphone anechoic recording, coupled to a specially devised “early reflections” impulse response, allowed to reproduce the full, rich timbre of the instrument including its radiation pattern, adding at same time a virtual space to the anechoic sound.

The Trombone features

  • The base material of the instruments (two Tenor, one Valve and one Bass Trombone) consists of 714 MB of samples, chromatically performed by a professional trombone player over a very wide dynamic range.
  • All samples are unlooped, and have a minimum duration of 8 sec.
  • As “The Trumpet”, the Trombone engine is structured according to an adaptive model, based on the performance “fingerprints” of the real instrument. The purpose of the model is to minimize the differences between the real phrases and those played by the virtual instrument.
  • Proprietary modal resonance IRs, innovative techniques for sample modulation, and advanced AI midi processing are used for real time construction of all articulations and morphing across dynamics, vibrato, legato, portamento, trills, vibrato-like endings, shakes and so forth.
  • Pseudo-random detuning, based on real performance-derived trends, is another outstanding new feature of The Trombone, adding further realism.
  • The slide effect has been perfectly reproduced by a novel application of the “Harmonic Alignment” technology. Ultra-realistic slide effects can be obtained by proper use of the pitchbend, but are also automatically activated by overlapped legato. As in the real instrument, a continuous glissando effect will be obtained if the portamento interval is within +/- 3 semitones.

The Trombone is available to purchase for PC and Mac, priced at 149 EUR excl. VAT. All registered owners of any Samplemodeling instrument will be entitled to a 10% discount when purchasing The Trombone, a special offer that is valid until July 31, 2010.

 Sample ModelingThe Sax Brothers

Sample Modeling has released The Sax Brothers, a collection of virtual saxophone instruments for Windows and Mac.

After the great success of Mr. Sax T, we were asked by our customers to extend the Sax family. Here are two brand new brothers, Mr. Sax A., and Mr. Sax B., exploiting the same technology, but based on completely new sample material, with a lot of new added features, and supplied with the newborn Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 Player.

New in The Sax Brothers

  • New instruments: Alto and Baritone Sax, designed and programmed for the new NI Kontakt 3.5 Player.
  • The main panel allows for monitoring and inputting control data. It includes a drop down menu for Keyboard, Breathcontroller, Yamaha and Akai windcontroller input, symmetrical and asymmetrical pitchbend response, velocity or CC controlled portamento time, etc.
  • Automatic recognition of the audio card sample rate has been implemented, thus obviating the need of manually setting the corresponding value on the instrument GUI.
  • Channel aftertouch is now recognized and can be used to control several parameters, such as vibrato intensity or rate, subharmonic, growl or flutter intensity. A user defined smoothing parameter helps reduce any sudden jump of the less-than-optimal aftertouch response of several keyboards.
  • MIDI remapping of incoming CCs is now possible, by a dedicated GUI.
  • Mr. Sax T v1.51 has been reprogrammed in exactly the same way as the other Brothers.

The Sax Brothers (alto, tenor & baritone sax) is available for purchase for 239 EUR. Mr. Sax B. & A. (alto & baritone sax) can also be purchased in a bundle for 149 EUR (prices excl. VAT if within the European Union, and if applicable).

Sample Modeling Mr. Sax T.

Sample Modeling releases Mr. Sax T., a virtual saxophone instrument powered by Kontakt Player 2.

Yes, it’s true, sample-based, but relying on a completely new technology, developed and patent-pending by Stefano Lucato. The saxophone is probably the most difficult instrument to emulate. Despite several attempts, using different technologies ranging from traditional sampling to sophisticated physical modeling, the results obtained so far fell short of the expectations. This is particularly true if real time use is concerned.

Mr. Sax T. features

  • Synchronous Wave Triggering — uses samples as a base material, chromatically performed by a professional sax player over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument.
  • Continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants.
  • Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato/portamento, vibrato, ornamentations & trills with phase continuity, constant-formant pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.
  • Kontakt Player 2 Virtual Instrument, working either standalone, or as a plugin (no additional sampler or player is needed).

Mr. Sax T. is available now for 119 EUR / $164 USD / 95 GBP (+ VAT, if applicable).
