Samplemodeling is the best. Best virtual instruments on the planet.
Your announcement of new discounts due to the Covid-19 dignifies you and shows your humanity. Not only you are by far the best virtual modeled instruments creators, You are a very good guys.
Sincerely, I think you are the most professional and meticulous creators of modeled instruments. I have compared to every other virtual sounds and sampled libraries and there's nothing like these ones. And believe me because I have been testing for years a vast quantity of string libraries. The playability and realism of your instruments is unbeatable. For the moment, for me, you are the top quality instruments on the market.
There are a good other ones like Wallander Instruments or Pianoteq in the world of modeled instruments (not sampled libraries). IK Multimedia has also two modeled instruments that are very very good (MODO DRUMS and MODO Bass).
When Audiomodeling was created and they took the swam motor with them, I really regretted it and thought that Samplemodeling would be very touched.
But I want to say one thing: in my opinion, without Swam Motor, your Kontakt libraries are better enough on many things. More realism, less nasal sound, more dynamics, more beautiful sound, better playability, etc. etc. etc. The sound is more "organic" and more authentic. Your brass demos sounds espectacular. I like more your Brass Instruments than the sound generated by SWAM.
To be honest, I think too that Audiomodeling has also a very good quality, but I think you are ahead in quality and realism. Even so both companies are very nice.
Thanks a lot for your good work and for your valuable contribution for the composers and musicians.
I hope that you are less valued than it really should be.
I hope you can develop more of this incredible virtual instruments for a long long time. I am eagerly waiting for you to bring us the family of woodwind instruments created in the same exquisite way as your strings and brass with Kontakt or the way you consider better.
