xoxos releases Piamo
xoxos has released Piamo, an elementarily modeled virtual piano, providing variable performance timbrality in a gentle emulation leant to abstraction.
“What would a simple physically modeled piano sound like?”
Piamo (“I love Pi”) provides the performance benefits of modeling in a low computational form.
The fundamental elements of the piano are modeled to create a timbrally expressive instrument less convincing than the excellent commercial emulations.
Piamo is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC. It is included with Pling3.
A functional demo is can be downloaded here (limited to three voices of polyphony, the full version is distributed with 8 voices).
Visit xoxos for more information and a demo mp3.
