GSi Genuine Soundware and Instruments has announced the release of a virtual trumpet instrument based on physical modeling techniques: Solo Trumpet.

Unlike other similar approaches to a digital recreation of a wind instrument, GSi Solo Trumpet is not meant to be necessarily controlled with a breath control or any other kind of expression controller. It can still be controlled from Midi CC messages and Channel Aftertouch, but its main purpose is to be played on a keyboard in a very natural way without being distracted by extra controllers.

Solo Trumpet continuously analyzes the playing style, the use of velocity, staccato and legato, note distance and other elements in order to articulate the sound in a way that it sounds and plays natural and realistic. Features such as auto-bending, auto-vibrato and automatic expression are the key to a satisfying result and make Solo Trumpet a fun instrument to play.

Priced 50 EUR (ex. VAT where applicable), Solo Trumpet is available for Windows and macOS (VST/VST3, AU and Standalone) and for iPad as App and AUv3 plugin.
