Sakura can reproduce the delicate pluck of a single string a violins bowing or the sonorous resonance of a grand piano. Most importantly the curious musician can take control of every aspect of the simulation to create fantastic instruments. Ever wanted to know what a 20 foot guitar sounded like? Or a bowed piano? Now you can find out Sakura opens up a world of string modelling possibilities why not download the Sakura demo and try it for yourself. The Sakurazensen is coming be there to experience it. Like the transient beauty of Sakura (Japanese for Cherry Blossom) the sound of stringed instruments blossoms and fades. Image-Line brings you ‘Sakura’ the string physical modelling instrument to express the delicacy and beauty of stringed sounds.
Contact - An impulse the mechanical contact with the string is first generated then shaped to simulate plucks picks scrapes hammers taps or humble fingers Vibration - Sakura’s dual string model then gives the operator control over a wide range of parameters such as damping tension positioning and string properties String interaction – The dual strings are then mixed panned and enveloped to simulate interactions Resonance - The string/s vibration then interacts with an 8-resonator ‘body simulator’ to create the size material and shape of the instrument Acoustics - Virtual acoustic space is then simulated with chorus delay and reverberation effects
