What's new in Samplemodeling Solo, Chamber & Ensemble Strings v. 2.0.2?


  1. Activation of both spiccato and marcato attacks by CC38 now takes place at any velocity above 40, instead of 100. This results in a much better playability. The intensity of these attacks is under control of CC38 and velocity.
  2. The CC11 ramps mimicking the progressive acceleration of the bow on attacks have been optimized.
  3. For more realistic effect, changing the ensemble size of the chamber instruments does not affect anymore the instrument volume.
  4. Proper handling of release-triggered notes on staccato and marcato has been accomplished.


  1. Stopping playback on some sequencers or notation programs (like Finale) occasionally produced hanging notes. This has been corrected.
  2. Changing the setting of the button "mapping" in the velocity mapping page was not propagated through the modules of chambers and ensembles when pressing "Synchronize Ensemble". This has been corrected.

All the best,

Giorgio & Peter.
