Modelonia is a novel physical-modelling synthesizer which uses a hybrid of two distinct model 'types' - a plucked-string model and a blown-bore (i.e. trumpet-type) model. Each model may be used simultaneously, and the signal path allows cross-modulation between the two models for more interesting and complex tones.
Modelonia is not simply an emulation of acoustic instruments; advanced physical modeling has been used to enable the creation of lively and expressive new sounds and harmonic textures. The interface has been designed to be as easy and helpful as possible for newcomers to this synthesis technology, without compromising Modelonia's sound design capabilities.
400+ presets included.
Now fully compatible with Windows and OS X 64-bit, AU and VST.
Windows 10 and Sierra Ready.

Modelonia is one of the best that there is. A bit limited but it sounds totally unique and worthy of listening to.Read Review
If you are looking for a VST instrument that can produce very playable and unique blown and plucked sounds but also had a low CPU hit Modelonia is the perfect instrument for the task. Modelonia has an orchestral/score vibe to it and it comes with a large library of sounds to get you started and there is plenty of control and modulation to play with to get even more interesting things happening, i found myself inspired and easily coming up with melodies with this plugin and i can see it playing a major part in a lot of my productions. For £53.00 Modelonia is worth every penny, a big plus for me is that there is none of this off putting intrusive jumping through hoops internet connection needed business before you start to use the software that you have just paid for (Some developers need to realize that the vast majority of us producers are good, honest hard working folk and keep their copy protection scheme simple and pain free - rant over!) the support from the NUSofting developer has been very responsive and helpful when i asked for advice and as long as NUSofting stays in business they will also have my support as a customer.Read Review
I'm having to give Modelonia a 10, because of what it can do and what it makes one do. Physical modeling is a sensitive technology and Modelonia is quite daring with what sound modification options it offers to the sound designer. Luckily it appears to have a built-in limiter, so at least your ears and gear won't shatter, giving you the chance to explore sounds of an absolutely unique nature. It produces virtually living sounds that I've never quite heard before, but that can be played so naturally and end up sounding so rich that I just have to consider it a must-have for truly musical musicians, but also the wilder kind.
Though you can create beautiful hammered instruments of the stringed variety and beyond, my favorite power of it lies within lead instruments of the blown kind. Again, I've never quite heard anything like it, but immediately fell in love with it. If you want to break out of any mold, this is a gem to do so.Read Review
