Sound Magic has announced availability of Cadenza Viola 2.0, 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.
A spokesperson told us, "Cadenza Viola Version 2.0 keeps the Italian handmade Viola's purity with crisp, clean, 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. As technology advances, Cadenza Viola Version 2.0 improves very much in the easy to use aspect, and also makes it very affordable. Compared to version 1.0, version 2.0 can keep the same performance with a price tag only 1/4 of version 1.0's original price. Also after changing to the watermark system, although it is vulnerable in protection against pirated, users can gain more freedom such as using it anywhere, and immediately after downloading it."
