Dear Samplemodeling Customer,

We are happy to announce that:

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

The new Violin, exploiting a further development of the SWAM proprietary platform SWAM Engine S, including all the features of previous SWAM-based instruments as well as some important new features, can be now purchased and downloaded from our website.

Virtually all the elements contributing to the sound of the real instrument have been introduced in this virtual violin. 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 Violin product page.

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


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

Enjoy!
Peter & Giorgio

We are happy to announce that:

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

The newly developed Cello, 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, partially exploited in our recently released Viola, 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 cello. 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 Cello product page.

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


The retail price for the Cello 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 August 31st 2016.

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

cello-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 Cello for 116 EUR instead of 129, (excl. VAT)
(Note: It will be an automatically generated e-mail - please do not reply to it).

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.

Samplemodeling

The retail price for the Trumpet 3 is € 159 + (+ VAT if applicable).

All owners of The Trumpet (any version) are entitled to purchase The Trumpet 3 for only € 30 (+ VAT if applicable).

In addition:

All customers who bought the Trumpet, whether alone or in a bundle, in 2015, are entitled to purchase the Trumpet 3 for only Eur 20 (+VAT if applicable).

To obtain the discount code:
Please click here and follow the instructions.

You will be asked to supply:

  1. the email address used when purchasing;
  2. the Trumpet license key.

In return, you will get a personal, non transferable, discount coupon.
It will allow you to purchase the Trumpet 3 at the discounted price reported above.

The new Viola is out!

November 23rd 2016

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!

Sample Modeling virtual instruments - review by GoldenZen: Introduction (1/8)

Dear Samplemodeling customer:

please read this news thoroughly - it includes some additional important information (see (2) below).


1) THE FLUTES ARE OUT!

The newly developed Flutes can now be purchased and downloaded from our website. The package includes four instruments, namely C-flute, piccolo, alto and bass flutes, and exploits our proprietary platform with all the features of previous SWAM-based instruments including realtime-controlled formants, BC mode, microtuning,  AAX support for Protools (32 & 64 bit), plus several improvements, including reduced CPU load, and a new Style slider adapting the instrument response to various styles from Classical to Jazz or Ethnic.

The Flutes will be available in one package only. The cost of all four instruments is Euro 229,- (+VAT, if applicable).

All Samplemodeling customers are entitled to a time-limited 10% discount. Please note that this offer expires on June 15th, 2014.

To obtain the discount code please send an e-mail with the subject "Flute discount" to:

flutes@recording-arts.de

supplying the name and the serial number (Kontakt), or license key (SWAM) of any of your Samplemodeling product.

In return, you will get a personal, non transferable code number. It will allow you to purchase The Flutes for EUR 206,-  instead of 229,- (excl. VAT).

(Note: it will be an automatically generated email, please do not reply).

While purchasing the Flutes, please enter the coupon code into the appropriate window at the first transaction page ("Your Coupon Code", below the product name).

IMPORTANT NOTE: the discount coupon that you will receive is strictly personal and non transferable. Violation of this rule will ultimately result a non-working instrument.


2) Important information for all SWAM users

We have just released the latest updates which are available for free on the usual update page:

https://swamengine.com/downloads

We strongly suggest to update your SWAM instruments as soon as possible. Updating is very easy and fast; the downloaded product installer replaces the instruments automatically, without losing your presets.

These updates are particularly important for customers using the older versions of the saxophones and clarinets (v.1.x), which required separate license key for each instrument.  The downloaded updates will include your new personal license keys which, after activation, will replace the previous ones. Please note that the old versions (1.x) will not be longer supported in a near future.

The newest versions include many improvements and fixes, offering  new useful features like Breath Controller mode or remarkably reduced CPU load (see the appropriate Release Notes in the Readme files). Furthermore, the copy protection is much more convenient since a single license key activates all instruments belonging to the product.

Enjoy! :)

Best regards,

Your Samplemodeling & SWAM Team

Samplemodeling SWAM Soprano & Bass Clarinets is out!

Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek present:

The Soprano & Bass Clarinets, created by Stefano Lucato & Emanuele Parravicini for our proprietary SWAM platform, and available as a package at the price of EUR 149 (+VAT if applicable) are ready for purchase and download.

Following Ms. Sax S. , the Clarinets are the next virtual instruments based on the revolutionary SWAM (Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling) technology. Sample-based, i.e. with the timbre of the real instrument, but with endless articulations and phrasings, built in realtime by the player using a keyboard and a few MIDI controllers, or a windcontroller.

Advanced processing techniques allow realistic crescendo, legato/portamento, vibrato, ornamentations & trills, constant-formant pitchbends, subharmonics, growl, overblow (and much more) to be performed in realtime.

NEW! MICROTUNING! The Clarinets include an entirely new feature, coping with the requirements of musicians playing Middle Eastern and Asian Music. Our approach to microtuning yields maximal flexibility, allowing user-defined scales, where the extent of detuning (range -60/+60 cents) can be precisely set for each note, and selectively applied to individual notes in realtime by Keyswitches activated by a MIDI CC.

All Samplemodeling customers are entitled to time limited 10% discount. Please note that this offer will expire on November 30th. See the buy page.

Enjoy!

Samplemodeling "French Horn and Tuba" is out!
 
Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek proudly present the results of more than one year of R&D.
 
The French Horn and the Tuba, developed for Kontakt 4.2, and available as a package at the price of EUR 149 (+VAT if applicable) are ready for purchase and download.
 
All Samplemodeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount. See the buy page.
 
Based on anechoic multimicrophone recording, and exploiting the "harmonic alignment" technology, allowing realtime seamless transition across virtually infinite dynamics, these new instruments exploit several new features:
 
1) reconstruction of the original rich sound of a large instrument from its spatial emission pattern, using multimicrophone techniques, and specially devised "early reflections" impulse responses.
 
2) ability to construct realistic ensembles from several instruments with different timbre and response, even if driven from a single MIDI track for unison playing, by exploiting Samplemodeling exclusive "Ensemble Maker" algorithm.
 
3) flexible and intuitive microtuning, allowing use of non western scales, with real time selection of the affected notes.
 
4) further optimisation for virtually any type of windcontroller.
 
 Further information in the Product -> French Horn & Tuba page.
 
Enjoy!
