MusicLab SmartFlute 1.0 released


MusicLab have released SmartFlute 1.0 DXi, the first of their forthcoming series called Smart Virtual Instruments (SVI).

Apparently, the advantage their new SVI series have over samplers and ROMplers, whether hardware or software based, is that in addition to samples, any SVI plugin features intelligent models of the authentic instrument performance. These models are used while playing MIDI tracks to automatically add nuances and techniques characteristic to this and only this particular instrument, such as vibrato, tremolo, breath, portamento, long note dynamic alterations, and many others.

SmartFlute features:

  • 8Mb of high quality stereo flute samples:
    - Indian Flute.
    - Pan Flute.
    - Piccolo.
    - Shakuhachi.
    - Flute Tong.
  • 'Smart' parameters/models:
    - Porta - adds/controls portamento/breath between some notes.
    - Accent - controls long note dynamics alteration.
    - Modulation - adds/controls modulation for some notes.
    - Tremolo - adds/controls tremolo for long notes.
  • Full automation of all parameters.

Using their SVI instruments one can achieve unbelievably natural and expressive sound while playing not only manually recorded, but also step-recorded MIDI tracks as well.

Luckily there is a 14 day fully functional demo version available so you can test out this theory for yourself before buying the full version for $49!
