SampleModeling has announced the release of Trumpet 3, a sample library for Kontakt and Kontakt Player by Giorgio Tommasini and Peter Siedlaczek.

SampleModeling The Trumpet 3

The Trumpet3 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 a virtual space to the anechoic sound, greatly contributing to realism (see below). 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 trumpet.

Trumpet 3 features

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

Trumpet 3 is available for purchase for 159 EUR. Owners of The Trumpet can upgrade for 30 EUR. In addition, all customers who bought the Trumpet (single or in a bundle) in 2015, can upgrade for 20 EUR. Prices ex. VAT if applicable.
