Sampling meets modeling, again & again
After the VHorns Brass section and VHorns Saxophones, Acoustic Samples are delighted to be introducing the latest addition to the VSeries - VWinds Double Reeds!
They sampled/modeled 2 Oboes, 2 English Horns (/Cor Anglais), 2 Bassoons and 1 Contrabassoon, each performed by different world-class musicians. The two versions of the Oboe, Bassoon and English Horn are separately recorded individual instruments, to offer variety of tone and colour.
Just as with VHorns, their core goal was to make these instruments easy to use right out of the box, without the need for key switches or multiple CCs, and controllable with just the air flow.
Thanks to their work on a hybrid technology blending recorded samples with modeling techniques, they were able to incorporate into these Double Reeds the very best of both worlds: impeccable, authentic-sounding instruments which are easily and immediately playable.
The VWinds Double Reeds also employ H.A.T. (our proprietary Harmonic Alignment Technology). This leading technology allows for a hyper-accurate reproduction of the timbre of each instrument, covering the full dynamic range across every articulation, combined with highly customizable, beautifully expressive performance techniques, such as legato transitions and vibrato.
The combination of real recorded samples with modeling techniques means that VWinds Double Reeds weighs in at only ~100Mb per instrument (retina graphics and presets included), while truly sounding like a real live instrument being recorded with all of its imperfections, alongside fully continuous response with unparalleled playability.
Acoustic Samples are confident in saying that to their ears, and hopefully yours too, VWinds Double Reeds are the most realistic and easy-to-use instruments of their kind available today.
