Too real, or not too real, that is the question

Post by webmaster » Wed Feb 06, 2013 5:42 pm

Too real, or not too real, that is the question :shock:

Designating three winners!

We will soon post in this thread another comparison between real and virtual saxophones. Probably a bit more difficult than the one previously shown in the Saxophones demo page. :roll:

Five files showing the same piece. Each file sounding different. The question is:
are they all virtual? All real? Or, which is real, and which is virtual?

These files will be posted at a time randomly set by our webmaster over a span of 24 hours, in order not to favor any time zone.

Only the guesses posted in this thread will be taken into account to designate the final winners.

The first 3 persons correctly identifying each version (as real or virtual) will be entitled to get our next release of new instruments for free!

Which instruments? Most likely the double reeds (oboe, english horn, bassoon.. ).

When will they be available? Most likely a question of a few months :)

Ah, this will be easy! The only problem is being one of the first 3 to respond correctly given the timezone problem. Oh well.

The Too Real or not Too Real Competition will start within the next 24 hours!

Please note:

Only one answer per person is allowed.

The competition will end 72 hours after publishing the audio files. After that time the truth will be disclosed.

In case a winner does not own all our instruments and does not want to wait until the next release, he/she is entitled to get for free one of the following products:

The Samplemodeling Brass bundle (Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn & Tuba)
The Sax Brothers
The Clarinets
The new SWAM Saxophones

In case you did not yet apply for posting in our forum, please do it now because the Administrator won't be able to activate forum accounts 24 hours/day.

How should we answer ? Should we edit our posts, or create a new post for each answer ?

What ? The administrator sometimes sleeps ?
You know what ?
That's not really professional.

Plougot,

simply post one reply to this thread, as, for example:

1 is real
2 is real
3 is real
4 is real
5 is real

Editing posts is of course not allowed.

1 and 3 are for sure real, but I think 4 can be virtual on SWAM (it is probably real, but no point of guessing same as previous three replies) :

1 is real
2 is virtual
3 is real
4 is virtual
5 is virtual
