Following the success of Wivi Band for iPhone, Wallander Instruments has announced the release of its latest software instrument: Wivi Band - The Virtual Instrument.
Wivi Band for Mac OS X and Windows is an easy-to-use, low-cost yet powerful software instrument, dedicated to wind instruments. It includes 10 modelled brasses and woodwinds (trumpet, trombone, french horn, tuba, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, tenor saxophone and soprano recorder). All instruments can be played solo or in sections of up to 8 players with automatic divisi.
The sound engine behind Wivi Band is the same high-quality engine used to power the synthesis/modeling software WIVI, but the instruments are wrapped behind an intuitive and easy-to-use interface with only the features you need, right where you need them. The software loads fast and all instruments have fluent, continuous dynamics that can be controlled using the mod wheel, an expression pedal or even performed with a breath controller.
