Dear Samplemodeling customer
we are happy to announce that:

The new French Horn & Tuba 3
created by Peter Siedlaczek & Giorgio Tommasini
is out!

French Horn & Tuba, v. 1 was first released in 2012. Even though it already included some advanced features of the most recent instruments, like early reflections and microtuning, we were asked to bring these instruments up to the same level of the currently available Trombone 3 & Trumpet 3.
That's why the French Horn & Tuba v. 3 is here, and can now be purchased and downloaded from our website.

What's new in French Horn & Tuba 3?

French Horn & Tuba 3 includes several exciting features:

  1. Improved fortissimo in the upper range
  2. New Early Reflections algorithm
  3. Virtual Soundstage, including distance control
  4. Real time Timbral Shaping
  5. Expression Mapping
  6. "For Unison Ensemble" Impulse Response
  7. Unison Ensemble Multi

(For a detailed description, please visit the French Horn & Tuba page)

The French Horn & Tuba 3 package includes:

  • Four French Horns, characterized by slightly different timbre, attack, vibrato & portamento behavior, suitable for solo and ensemble playing. The playing range corresponds to that of a top professional player, i.e. A0 - G4 (C3 = middle C).
  • A ready-to-use Multi for ensemble unison playing, including four specially devised French Horns and a suitable ambience/convolution reverb.
  • A Tuba, covering the range of the whole tuba family from Contrabass Tuba to F Tuba, i.e. from C0 to F3.

The retail price for French Horn & Tuba 3 is € 159 + (+ VAT if applicable).

All owners of French Horn & Tuba v. 1.03 are entitled to purchase the new French Horn & Tuba 3 for only Eur 30 (+ VAT if applicable).

Dear Samplemodeling customer:

The new Trumpet 3
created by Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek
is out!

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 B? 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:
