All Samplemodeling™ Virtual Instruments of the Brass family have been developed on the Kontakt™ platform produced by Native Instruments. The Trumpet and Trombone, as well as the French Horn and Tuba, exploit the Harmonic Alignment Technology, developed by Giorgio Tommasini, for real time building of articulations.

The Sax Brothers use an alternative approach, the Synchronous Wave Triggering conceived by Stefano Lucato. This latter technique is less suited to the Kontakt engine, due to some technical limitations, including jitter and fixed interpolation.

The Saxophones utilizes Samplemodeling’s proprietary SWAM Engine (Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling) developed by Stefano Lucato.

The Saxophones use samples as a base material, chromatically performed by a professional player over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument. But the analogy with a sample based library ends here. The underlying, proprietary technology allows continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants. Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato/portamento, vibrato, overblow, ornamentations & trills with phase continuity, constant-formant pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

The Saxophones are supplied as a bundle of plug-ins for 32- and 64-bit Windows and Mac OS X in AU and VST formats for 259 EUR. Owners of any Sample Modeling saxophone library, purchased before January 21st, 2013, can purchase the new SWAM-based Saxophones package for 149 EUR before March 31st, 2013. Prices ex. VAT, if applicable.

Background philosophy

Stefano's idea is to create realistic musical instruments. The timbral properties should be indistinguishable from real saxophones. They must be played as real instruments, using a keyboard or a wind controller, plus three or four midi controllers, including an expression pedal or breath controller. All articulations are easily shaped by the player, even in real time, using just velocity, pitchwheel, modwheel, an expression pedal or breath controller, a sustain pedal, plus some optional CCs to control overblow, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue. Virtually any wind controller can be used to play these instruments.

The controllers (CCs)

Real time control of most parameters can be accomplished via midi. The Saxophones exploit several MIDI controllers for optimal performance. The basic controllers are the Pitchwheel, CC11 (or CC7, or CC2) for the dynamics, CC1 (modwheel) for vibrato intensity, CC19 for vibrato rate. Portamento time can be assigned either to the velocity of the overlapped note or to any CC. Special effects are key noise (CC9), Subharmonic intensity (CC20), Growl (CC21), Flutter Tongue (CC23) and Overblow (CC64). Channel aftertouch (CC129) can be used to control several parameters, such as vibrato intensity or rate, subharmonic, growl or flutter intensity.

The graphical interface (GUI)

Here you can modify the default settings for several parameters. You may vary timbre, harmonic structure and formants, choose type of attack, set the intensity of set the intensity of subharmonic, growl, flutter tongue, key noise, and breath noise. You may control random pitch and dynamics fluctuations, pitch response to dynamic changes, overall resonance of the pipe, subharmonic intensity on transitions, release and portamento time. You may also set transposition, master tune, pitchbend response, volume, pan, dynamic compression, intensity and decay of the built-in reverb. A downward fall can be triggered by pressing a button, as well as from a keyswitch or a MIDI controller.
