Virtual flute

Jacob Jordaens, Three musicians. 17th century.The recorder is a woodwind instrument of the group known as fipple flutes. It was popular in Renaissance period through baroque era, but declined in the 18th century.

Many composers of the baroque era wrote specifically for the recorder, including Bach, Handel, Purcell, Sammartini, Scarlatti, Schütz, Telemann and Vivaldi.

The recorder was revived in the 20th century, partly in the pursuit of historically informed performance of earlymusic, but also because of its suitability as a simple instrument for teachingmusic.

The Super Recorder by Suonopuro was born as an evolution of the Suonopuro Recorder, 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 Recorder 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 a four and a half octave range. The crescendo and diminuendo are very natural, without earing overlapping notes.

The Super Recorder also has a wide range of effects, which transform the Recorder sound into something more modern: brilliance effect, chorus, distortion, adjustable breath noise, automatic vibrato, flutter, stereophonic effect and more.

The Suonopuro Super Recorder 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.).
