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.

Puremagnetik releases Baritron – A Saxophone Instrument from the Future

Puremagnetik Baritron

Puremagnetik has released Baritron, a saxophone sound library packed into a collection of 11 multisampled instruments in three eclectic categories.

Four instruments (All, Soft, Loud, Staccato) capture the classic acoustic tones of the baritone saxophone. The “All” instrument combines everything as multiple layers of velocity articulations. From quiet reed slaps to wailing growls and release clicks, Baritron has fully captured all of these saxophone nuances. Two FX instruments (Mash and Slap) are focused on recreating the pseudo-random keymashing and the percussive tongue slaps that the saxophone does so well.

In addition, Puremagnetik has created 5 experimental instruments that push the sonic barrier. Tron-Doom was made with a doubled talkbox process layered on a sub octave pitch shifter. Tron-Drillex was the result of vocoding the saxophone with the sound of an electric drill articulating a stratocaster. Tron-Lazer has 3 velocity layers of sax vocoded with a series of descending pitch slides. Tron-Maoff convolves the sound of a bowed string into the sax, combined with a enveloped filter. And finally… Tron-Vowelz is vocoded with a human voice to create 4 different tones, blendable and interchangeable.

Baritron features

  • 11 multi-sampled instruments with expressive articulations.
  • Over 500 high quality samples .
  • Advanced Ableton Live Racks with customized Macro Controls .
  • Kontakt KSP easy edit GUI .
  • Logic EXS version includes Channel Strip Settings with Logic effects.
  • EXS Universal file format for easy importing into any audio host.

Baritron for Ableton Live, Kontakt, Logic (and any host that can import EXS24 format) is now available to Puremagnetik subscribers.
