Ginharbringer,

you're right. The new Trombone, vers. 3.0, Kontakt-based and including incredible new features, is nearly ready after extensive and gratifying beta testing.

It will be released around January 15th, 2014.

Stay tuned! ;-)

Wonderful !

Will it be free or paying ? Either way, i'll get it, and I bet I won't be the only one^^.

Can you be a bit more specific about the new features ? Or is it still official secret ? ^^

Not free of course. It took one year of strenuous work.

But you won't be disappointed. We will publish technical and commercial details in a few days on the NEWS.

Giorgio & Peter.

Sounds amazing !

How much would I LIKE to pay for it ? :p
Obviously, I would very much like to have it for free.

eeh, wasn't that the question ?

Oh, you meant how much WOULD I pay for it ? :p
I really don't know personnaly, since I don't fully understand precisely what those new features are (expression maps and breathy attacks, for example).

But, since we'll probably have to buy the same update for the trumpet and the horn/tuba, i would say something between 20 euros (yeepeeeeeeeeeh) and 50 (bleeeeeeeeaaaarg).
But as far as I'm concerned, I'll buy it anyway, so guys, you can pretty much act like coin-thirsty pirates on this one.

Depends on how awesome the new features sound, especially the virtual sound stage, and if the same effect can be achieved with stuff I already have. By the way, is that Virtual Soundstage the same as the already existing Virtual Soundstage plugin made by Parallax Audio?

I'm really looking forward to hearing some examples of the new features! I love that SM decided to go back and do some major updates to the brass instruments.

Virtual Soundstage, including distance control
:o :D :o :D :shock:
If so...
I'm waiting for a common "Virtual Soundstage, including distance control" specialized for all SM instruments!
May God bless you!

Sounds fair! Can't wait to hear some examples of the new features though. Also, I'm really curious to know what happened to Trombone2?
