Virtuoso bansuri player Hariprasad ChaurasiaThe bansuri is an ancient transverse flute of India made from a single hollow shaft of bamboo. It is mostly used in Indian classical music. References to the bansuri are found in the texts of the 3000 year old holy scriptures of the Hindus: the Vedas. The bansuri is considered to be divine and is intimately linked to lord Krishna and Radha. It is believed that when lord krishna played his flute, the beautiful sound had a spellbinding and enthralling effect not only on women but also on animals.

The Super Bansuri by Suonopuro was born as an evolution of the Suonopuro Bansuri, a virtual musical instrument appreciated and used by many musicians from all over the world. It comes from a long and meticulous research and experimentation work. It is a highly innovative virtual instrument, which differs greatly from the previous version, because it combines the realism of instruments entirely based on sampled sounds, with the versatility and playability of virtual instruments based mainly on algorithms.

A new, modern and complex algorithm makes the most of the myriad sampled sounds of the previous library, allowing you to obtain an instrument with a highly convincing timbre, playable in a fluid, expressive and intuitive way.

With the Super Bansuri you can start a note with a wide range of nuances, from portato to accented, or with different types of bending, also controlling its duration. You can perform both legato phrases and glissato passages, up to twelfth intervals (19 semitones of distance), with great realism. It also has a wide dynamic and tonal range, adjustable and controllable in many ways, and an incredible five and a half octave range. The crescendo and diminuendo are very natural, without earing overlapping notes.

The Super Bansuri also has a wide range of effects, which transform the bansuri sound into something more modern: brilliance effect, chorus, distortion, adjustable breath noise, automatic vibrato, flutter, stereophonic effect, the singing technique, in the style of the great flautist Ian Anderson, and more.

The Suonopuro Super Bansuri is designed to get the best, in terms of expression and control, from any kind of MIDI instrument:
 • Electronic Wind Instruments (Akai EWI, Roland Aerophone, Yamaha YDS, Berglund NuEVI, 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.).
