Synful Orchestra VSTi DXi v2.31 AiR
Synful Orchestra is new. It is not a sampler, it is not a sample library. It's a real change in the way music synthesis is done.

Realism, Expression and Smart Articulation
Realistic instrument simulations depend on the
transitions between notes, as much as on the
individual timbres. Slurs with varying amounts of
portamento, lightly tongued or bowed note
transitions, fast runs, detached hard attacks û these
note transitions are the connective tissue of musical
expression. Whether you play live from keyboard or
edit directly in a sequencer Synful Orchestra
responds automatically with realistic sounding note
transitions. There are no special buttons or phrasing
tools. If you play staccato Synful Orchestra creates
staccato attacks. If you play legato Synful Orchestra
creates realistic legato transitions. Synful
Orchestra models the way notes are sustained, the
graceful onset of vibrato, breath sounds, the sound
of the bow on the string, the change of tone color as
a note becomes louder or softer. Using the innovate
Synful Pitch Wheel mode, you can easily create
natural string portamento. Synful Orchestra lets you
make music like a musician not like a programmer.
Synful Reconstructive Phrase Modeling Technology
Synful Orchestra is not a sampler or a sample
library. Synful Orchestra is not a physical modeling
synthesizer. It is an entirely new concept in music
synthesis. At the heart of Synful Orchestra is
SynfulÆs Reconstructive Phrase Modeling (RPM)
technology. This is the result of many years of
research, several patents, and a lifetime of
experimentation, design, and frustration with older
RPM Phrase Database: Morphing and Splicing
RPM technology uses a database of recorded phrases of
orchestral instruments. These are not recordings of
isolated notes but complete musical passages that
represent all kinds of articulation and phrasing.
When Synful Orchestra receives MIDI input it looks at
the pitch, velocity, amount of separation or overlap
between notes, note duration, volume, pitch, and
modulation controls to determine what kind of phrase
is being played. Synful Orchestra uses a set of
advanced algorithms to search the RPM Phrase Database
in real-time for fragments that can be spliced
together to form this phrase. These fragments
represent transitions between notes, slurs with
portamento, lightly tongued transitions, aggressive
fast bowing, rapid runs, long sustain regions with
graceful vibrato, and noise elements like flute
chiffs and bow scratches. Synful Orchestra morphs
these fragments by stretching and shifting in time
and pitch so that they combine to form the final
Synful RPM Additive Synthesis
A single note in Synful Orchestra may be built from
three or more rapidly spliced RPM phrase fragments.
Splicing ordinary PCM sampled sounds in this way
would create unacceptable warbles and clicks. Synful
Orchestra uses a patented form of additive synthesis
in which sounds are generated from combinations of
pure sine waves and noise elements. This gives Synful
Orchestra the ability to rapidly stretch, shift, and
splice phrase fragments while preserving perfect
MIDI Look Ahead
Realistic note transitions begin before a new note
starts. When a wind player plays a slur, the timbre
and intensity of the current note begins to change
well before the pitch changes to the new note. This
anticipation of the upcoming note is a key aspect of
expressive playing. Performers can do this because
they know ahead of time when they are going to play a
new note and they prepare for it with changes in
embouchure and breath pressure.
To model this kind of expression a synthesizer needs
to have the same knowledge of the future. Synful
Orchestra handles this with two modes of operation.
When playing live from a keyboard Synful Orchestra
has no knowledge of when a new note is coming, and so
it does its best to react as expressively as possible
with low latency when a new note occurs. However,
when playing from a sequence Synful Orchestra can
optionally add a delay to the Midi input. This delay
allows Synful Orchestra to look ahead in the Midi
sequence, recognize when a new note is coming, and
anticipate it with appropriate changes to the timbre
and intensity of the current note. The result is more
realistic and natural phrasing.
Realistic String, Brass, and Woodwind Sections
Any Synful Orchestra solo instrument can be turned
into a natural sounding section. Synful Orchestra
uses its RPM database to guarantee realistic
variation between players. You can select the number
of players in the section, how the players are
positioned on stage, the rhythmic variation between
the players, detuning among the players, and more.
Synful Orchestra sections simulate realistic and
natural divisi. If you play a monophonic line with
ten violin players then they all play that line. If
you play a ten note chord then each player will play
one note in the chord and the ten players will be
spread out in space. If you play three note chords
then the ten players distribute themselves
automatically 4-3-3 across the notes.
Flexible Player Positioning
Synful Orchestra instruments are positioned on a
virtual stage. The player and listener positions and
room size can be adjusted. Each instrument in the
orchestra sounds like its coming from a specific
location. The Synful sound positioning technology
uses inter-aural level differences and inter-aural
time differences, direct signals and as well as wall
and ceiling reflections to synthesize player
position. The result is much more realistic sounding
than simple panning.
Authentic Vibrato Controlled from the Mod Wheel
Traditional samplers have two ways of introducing
vibrato û both are inadequate. In the first, the
vibrato is recorded with the sample. The vibrato can
sound authentic but it is frozen so that you cannot
control it as part of an expressive performance. The
second way records samples without vibrato and then
applies artificial frequency and amplitude modulation
(LFO) during synthesis. This allows expressive
control but sounds artificial because the vibrato is
too simple. Synful Orchestra uses its RPM additive
synthesis technology to provide the best of both
techniques. With Synful Orchestra the vibrato you
hear is the original rich and complex vibrato of the
recorded phrases in the RPM database. However, you
can also control the vibrato using the Mod wheel so
that it sounds expressive within the context of the
Synful Pitch Wheel Mode
Getting authentic sounding string slides and
portamento has always been challenging for
synthesizers and samplers. Synful introduces the new
Synful Pitch Wheel Mode which makes it easy to
generate expressive and natural sounding pitch slides
Synful Orchestra is Small and Efficient û Great for
Desktops and Notebooks
The recorded phrases in the RPM phrase database are
stored in additive synthesis format not as PCM
sampled wave files. This method of storing
instrumental sounds is much more compact then
traditional PCM. The entire Synful Orchestra fits in
just 32M of memory and loads in seconds. Because of
its compact size Synful Orchestra has no need for
disk streaming and does not require a computer with a
state of the art high-speed disk system. Synful
Orchestra runs great on ordinary desktop and notebook
