Introduction

A chromatic harmonicaThe Harmonica by Suonopuro is a very expressive and realistic virtual instrument emulating different kinds of harmonica: the chromatic, with or without resonance; the tremolo, which has two reeds per note, with one slightly sharp and the other slightly flat; and the octave harmonica.

The harmonica, also known as a French harp or mouth organ, is a free reed wind instrument used worldwide in many musical genres, notably in blues, American folk music, classical music, jazz, country, and rock.

The Suonopuro Harmonica, using the most advanced technological solutions, allows emulating the original instrument perfectly, even in legato, staccato and in the tonal variations that are obtained at different dynamic.

The Suonopuro Harmonica also has a wide range of effects, which transform its sound: distortion, chorus, wha-wha, etc. Moreover, its numerous functions make it very versatile and playable live. It can be used both in monophonic mode, for greater realism, and in polyphonic mode. It can also perform up to two parallel secondary voices simultaneously, so you can emulate the octave harmonica, for example.

It does not require complicated settings or intricate ways of playing: just play normally on your MIDI instrument to get legato and staccato, crescendo and diminuendo, piano and forte, vibrato, glissando, etc.

The Suonopuro Harmonica is designed to get the best, in terms of expression and control, from any kind of MIDI instrument:

 • Electronic Wind Instruments (Akai EWI, Yamaha WX5, Casio Zanzithophone, Roland Ae10g, Morrison Digital Trumpet, etc.);

 • MIDI strings (Cantini MIDI violin, Zeta MIDI violin, etc.);

 • MIDI converters, like the Sonuus i2M;

 • MIDI keyboards (NI Komplete control, M-Audio Oxygen, etc.); • MIDI controllers (TEC breath controller, MIDI expression pedal, Yamaha BC3, etc.).
