SONORITY

GENERAL MIDI (GM)

SoundexpanderTwo of the 4 GB of integrated flash memory in V3 SONORITY are loaded with the standard 128 sounds in the general MIDI soundbank. These GM sounds set a new standard of tone quality, both in the number of samples and in their length and quality. As if that wasn’t enough, the V3 SONORITY also includes drumkits with up to 10 dynamic settings per sound.

Many of the sound programs run on Round Robin technology. When a key is pressed more than once, the available samples are automatically switched out in order to bring the music to life – not just for single tones, but also when playing whole MIDI files.

The GM bank’s special feature is the variation sounds, made specifically for soloists. Along with a great variety of e-pianos, you will also find a Vienna grand in stereo with 7 dynamic settings and a 300 MB memory requirement. The “slide-up” samples can be activated by a hard hit to a key, which enable you to convincingly play string and wind instruments on your keyboard. Your play gets a pinch of extra spice with string and fretboard sounds that are called up randomly when you let go of a key (note off). Flat, dull general MIDI sounds are so yesterday.

CLASSIC | Strings

The orchestra instruments are intricately programmed and available in a wide variety – from a complete symphony orchestra (full strings) and chamber music ensembles to string ensembles with 14 violins, 10 violas, 8 cellos and 6 double basses. All the string instruments can be played in solo versions also, as well as in the most well-known effects, such as legato, marcato, détaché, pizzicato and bow tremolo.

For all string sounds, hitting the key hard also creates a hard bow sound on the virtual string. Round Robin technology is employed with strings also, resulting in the automatic switch between up and down bowing. This technology really stands out in détaché play. Note-off samples create natural tone fades, perfectly capturing the way resonance in string instruments can be heard for a long time after a note is played, softening the flow of the melody.

CLASSIC | Winds

sound modulThe V3 SONORITY & CLASSIC soundbank includes basically all orchestral wind instruments. You will find trumpets, trombones, tubas, horns, clarinets, and flutes in solo versions as well as ensembles and in a variety of articulations, such as marcato, sforzato and staccato.

The Round Robin function plays a critical role here also, since 16th-note passages would not sound natural without it. Other instruments in this group include tenor horn, English horn, oboe, bassoon and contrabassoon.

CLASSIC | Percussion

Over the years, the tasks of classical percussionists have become more complex and challenging. Today, up to 5 percussionists work together as a team in large orchestras.

In V3 SONORITY & CLASSIC, you will find the necessary tools – from the small drum to the timpani, from the gong to the cymbals, from the xylophone to the marimbaphone, from the triangle to the tubular bells. Not even the celesta is missing, where steel plates are hit with felt hammers through a keyboard.

You will find whatever you need to set rhythmic accents to the sounds of an orchestra – in groundbreaking quality and enormous variations – like lightning-fast drum rolls.

MODEL XL

The SONORITY XL also offers 240 sounds from a wide range of sound categories.

70 Organs

This sound bank includes a great selection of organs: jazz and German entertainer organs, each with fast and slow rotary effects, as well as English theater organs. Travel back in time with select sounds of the Cordovox electric accordion from the 1970s.

60 Accordions

Samples on instruments from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, as well as France, Ireland and Scotland make up this huge selection of accordion sounds. Sounds with great tremolo or “flat tuning” are available along with musette tuning and other specialties of French and Belgian instruments. Jazz lovers will enjoy the Super VI model and the Accordiona; friends of Swiss folk music will love the Schwyzer Örgelis; and Oberkrainer fans will like the two Alpine models. For Austrian music there are two Steirische Harmonikas.

Guitar

New pedal steel guitar, rhythm guitars, and a Napoli mandolin ensemble with tremolo and single-picking provide a Italian flair. The integrated round-robin function makes the sounds sound very lively.

Brass & Winds

The XL model features a trumpet and trombone section with fall-go and up-shake articulations, sax sections, a solo funky tenor sax, and a soprano sax.

Ethno & Folk Music

The ethnic instruments include a Scottish group of “Highland Pipers,” an Irish Uilleann pipe with drones and an accompanying accordion for Celtic music, as well as a 3-octave Tyrolean-style dulcimer. Solo alphorns and alphorn ensembles, cow bells and Jew’s harp can also be found in this sound bank. Many of these sounds use Round Robin technology to give your music richness and authenticity.
