!!! The new Samplemodeling Viola is out !!!

November 23rd 2016

Dear Friends,

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 EUR 116 instead of 129, (excl. VAT)

Enjoy! :)

Giorgio & Peter & the SWAM Team.

I'm trying to respond to the link in the ad to get the current user discount. The email keeps bouncing back to me.

Is the email address correct in the ad?

It responds beautifully with the EWI … as would be expected of a Samplemodeling instrument.

Unbelievable !!!!!

Sounds great, natural and versatile.

I am sure it will be great be played with a TEC BBC (two parameters nicely simultaneously controlled by mouth). Supposedly even a better option than a Wind controller, as seemingly playing two notes at the same time is perfectly possible and naturally sounding.
