Soundfonts.it has released Miles’tone, a new VST physically modeled instrument designed to bring realistic trumpet sounds to your sequencer. Miles’tone is designed to work with a wind controller, but can also be played with a traditional MIDI keyboard thanks to the built-in dedicated envelope generator.
Miles’tone is a simulation of a trumpet, based on a mixed use of traditional synthesis (oscillators, filters) and physical modeling synthesis (tuned delay lines, resonators). According to the designers, it reacts to pitch changes and air pressure in a very natural way.
Will it make you sound like Miles Davis?
While it probably won’t make you sound like Miles, it does make some fairly realistic trumpet sounds. You can preview the sound of Miles’tone below. More examples are available at the Soundfonts site.
Pricing is 29 Euros through August 31st, then it will be 39 Euros.
