Voilà ViolaOn l’espérait, c’est chose faite. Après sa série d’instruments virtuels consacrée aux cuivres et bois, voici que Sample Modeling s’attaque aux cordes. En commençant par l’alto solo, et ce sans apparemment plus un iota d’échantillonnage, uniquement à base de modélisation. Lire la suite…

A viola sample library powered by the next generation Swam Engine S for Mac OS X and Windows
Controls: Bow speed, pressure, direction and distance from the bridge, resonance of the played string, that of the open strings, the amount of rosin and bow noise, the sharpness of the attack, the bow lift (on the string vs. off the string) on both attack and release, the position on the fingerboard, and many other parameters
Each parameter can be assigned to any MIDI CC
Three main Play Modes are available, namely Bowed, Pizzicato & Col Legno
three bow gesture modes: 1) Expression, where a balanced combination of bow speed, pressure and position is controlled by CC11 as in all previous instruments, 2) Bipolar, similar to Expression, but reversing bow direction when CC 11 crosses the value 64, 3) Bowing, where the speed of the bow becomes proportional to the speed of the controller. This latter mode is supplied mainly to cope with particular controllers, mimicking the movements of a real bow.
RealMono mode (strictly monophonic), as well as various degrees of polyphony
nonlinear mapping of expression, attack envelope, activation of various bow change modes, legato vs. portamento mode, vibrato rate, tremolo mode and speed, tuning of the individual strings, microtuning etc.
Each Viola includes several "instruments" with a different timbre which can be loaded via the main GUI.
AU, VST2 and AAX 32 or 64 bit for Mac OS X and Windows
