Sound Magic has announced availability of Cadenza Viola, its latest hybrid modelling virtual instrument for Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit), featuring an Italian handmade viola powered by the latest Neo Orchestra Hybrid Modelling Engine. This is the story in their own words...
Cadenza Viola keeps the Italian handmade viola’s purity with crisp, transparent, unaltered details free of reflections or coloring. In fact, Sound Magic used the SSL 9000 series console, along with legendary U47 and M49 Neumann vintage microphones, to ensure vivid representation in each note.
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.
Hybrid Vibrato and Tremolo achieves more authentic sounds from sampling without sacrificing creative control. For perspective, this means starting with non-vibrato and then fading in vibrato sustain while changing depth and speed. Or, users can also change Tremolo speed in real time while optimize control or to leverage human behaviors in the vibrato for enhanced realism in the final version.
Sound Magic have also made it possible to finish all techniques on a single track with Performance Keyswitch System that allows Cadenza Viola to be used in live performances without sacrificing quality or efficiency.
Cadenza Viola 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.
