Dear Samplemodeling Customer,

We are happy to announce that:

The Viola
created by Stefano Lucato & Emanuele Parravicini
in collaboration with Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek
is out!

The newly developed Viola, exploiting a further development of our proprietary platform, namely the SWAM Engine S, and including all the features of previous SWAM-based instruments, plus a completely new set of incredible features, can now be purchased and downloaded from our website.

Virtually all the elements contributing to the sound of the real instrument have been introduced in this virtual viola. Bow speed, pressure, direction and distance from the bridge are under player's control. One can also control the 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 preferred finger position, and many other parameters. Each parameter can be assigned to any MIDI CC, allowing real time control.

For a detailed description, please visit the Viola product page.

The Viola includes several "instruments" with a different timbre which can be loaded via the main GUI.


The retail price for the Viola is 129 EUR + (+ VAT if applicable).

in addition, all Samplemodeling customers are entitled to a time-limited 10% discount. Please note that this offer expires on January 31th 2016.
116 EUR instead of 129

To obtain the discount code:
Please send an email with the subject "Viola discount" to:

viola-discount@samplemodeling.com

supplying the name and the serial number (Kontakt), or license key (SWAM) of any of your Samplemodeling products.
In return, you will get a personal, non transferable code number.

It will allow you to purchase The Viola for 116 EUR instead of 129, (excl. VAT)

Enjoy!

Dear Samplemodeling customer:

We believe that The Trumpet, created by Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek, first released (v.1.01) in 2008 and subsequently updated to v. 2.52, is still unsurpassed in the field of virtual instruments. However, why not further raising the bar, for example by introducing the new outstanding features of the Trombone 3 as requested by many customers?
We were asked to maintain retro-compatibility with the original Trumpet. The task turned out to be quite difficult, and this major upgrade required quite a time.
But finally... The Trumpet 3 is out!
What's new in The Trumpet 3?

The Trumpet 3 includes several exciting features:

  1. New Early Reflections algorithm
  2. Virtual Soundstage, including distance control
  3. Real time Timbral Shaping
  4. Microtuning
  5. Expression Mapping
  6. Breathy Sound
  7. "For Unison Ensemble" Impulse Response
  8. Unison Ensemble Multi

The Trumpet 3 package includes Three Bb Trumpets, a Cornet, a Flegelhorn, a German Trumpet and a Piccolo Trumpet.

The TouchKeys, developed by Andrew McPherson at Queen Mary University of London, add touch sensing to the surface of any keyboard, measuring the position of the fingers on the keys. Using the TouchKeys with Sample Modeling instruments, it's possible to play vibrato, pitch bends, scoops and falls with a single hand, all by how the fingers move on the key surfaces:
