Samplemodeling The Flutes

Samplemodeling has announced the release of The Flutes, a virtual instrument library featuring the C-flute, piccolo, alto and bass flutes.

Flutes 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, vibrato, squeak, overblow, ornamentations & trills, pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

The Flutes for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for 229 EUR (+VAT, if applicable). Sample Modeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount, available until June 15th, 2014.

Sample Modeling releases Trombone 3 for Kontakt

Samplemodeling Trombone 3

Samplemodeling 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.

Sample Modeling releases The Saxophones sound library

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

Samplemodeling 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 Samplemodeling 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.

Samplemodeling Soprano & Bass Clarinets

Samplemodeling 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 Samplemodeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount until November 30th, 2012.
