For those who arenâ€™t familiar with Synful Orchestra, it is an orchestra simulation technology based on what Synful calls Reconstructive Phrase Technology (RPM). This is a fundementally different way of producing an orchestral sound than the usual sampling technology we are accustomed to. With RPM, orchestral instruments are recorded by Synful in full phrases, not note by note as in a usual sampling session. These full phrases are then synthesized using an additive synthesis technique. When you play Synful, it basically searches the library of phrases and using them creates the melodies and rhythms that you are playing.
Thatâ€™s the short version, obviously thereâ€™s a lot more to it. The demo as played by Eric Lindemann in the Synful booth was impressive, especially in terms of the natural ease with which different articulations and tones can be performed. Amazingly, Synful uses only 120 megs of memory, allowing it to be completely loaded into RAM. This avoids the bottleneck of disk streaming.
For those of you already familiar with this product, additional features in version 2.4.1 include:
