Sound Magic has announced the release of an update to the Cadenza Solo Strings hybrid modelling virtual instrument for Windows and Mac.

Version 2.0 of the instrument keeps the Italian handmade Solo Strings’ purity with crisp, clean, unaltered details free of reflections or coloring. Sound Magic used the SSL 9000 series console, along with legendary U47 and M49 Neumann vintage microphones, to ensure vivid representation in each note.

As technology advances, Cadenza Solo Strings Version 2.0 improves very much in the easy to use aspect, and also makes it very affordable. Compared to version 1.0, version 2.0 can keep the same performance with a price tag only 1/4 of version 1.0’s original price. Also after changing to the watermark system, although it is vulnerable in protection against pirated, users can gain more freedom such as using it anywhere, and immediately after downloading it.

It’s this sound that leads Sound Magic to expand its Modeling Legato technology to bring musicians even more creative musical freedom. It is capable of supporting any technique, patches, or articulations with more control over the parametric. This allows musicians to manipulate shapes and sound variety in real time with smoother transitions between notes than a sampled legato.

Cadenza Solo Strings offers far more sound-shaping options than a sampling instrument with five bands parametric EQ and more control over the harmonic partial sounds. This means you can quickly change timbre with a simple turn of a knob or tune every single note with the Scala tuning system.

Cadenza Solo Strings (VST/AU) is available for the intro price of $79 USD for a limited time (MSRP $399 USD). Sound Magic has also announced a March Madness Sale, with up to 80% off on over 60 instruments and effects plugins.
