Syflex has announced the release of Sylfid-f2, a new physical modeling string plug-in that models a musical instrument that has two strings per note.
Sylfid-f2 doesn't use any samples: everything is computed using a fast simulation algorithm. It computes the propagation of waves on the strings, and converts them to sounds in real time. This allows creation of sounds that exhibit real-life properties like long decays, without any samples, no loops and no reverb.
The material of the strings can be changed continuously from metal to plastic.
The plug-in is based on the same technology as Sylfid-f1, but is less complex to tune. For example the strings material cannot be changed on a per string basis and the hammer position is fixed.
Pricing & Availability
Sylfid-f2 costs $20 and is available for Windows and Mac OS X (Intel only) as a VST instrument plug-in.
