Sound Magic Red Wings Piano [VSTi]
Эмулятор пианино в формате VSTi, использующий технологию физического моделирования.
Pianos is designed for the purpose that using physical modeling
technology to achieve the same reality level as sampling while keeping
the CPU usage low. In order to do this, Supreme Pianos uses a series of
groundbreaking technologies including Harmony Rendering Engine and
Multi-Dimension Vector Synthesis.
basic idea of Supreme Pianos is coming from 3D graphic rendering. It
uses Physical modeling to shape the sound’s “skeleton” of the piano,
and then mapping a series of harmony components on to the skeleton to
achieve an authentic sound.
Pianos does not rely on sampling, has a small memory footprint and
extreme low CPU usage making it ideal for live performances. Even on a
Pentium III 533MHz system, it could work great while running under
heavy duty. And on today’s quad core system, Supreme Pianos could
maintain CPU usage unnoticeable.
Pianos contains 3 grand pianos, Blue Water Piano, Red Wings Piano and
Mini Piano. Supreme Pianos now provides Stand-alone version and VSTi
plug-in version running on Windows system. There will be more add-ons
in the feature.
Revolutionary 256 stages/40Hz Harmony Rendering Engine adds Reality to the sound of physical modeling piano.

Proprietary Real Dynamic Response System accurately represents real grand piano’s non-linear dynamic response.
Full repedalling feature accurately recreates the behavior between pedal up and pedal down.
Proprietary 264-strings Sympathetic Resonance System reproduce comprehensive Sympathetic Resonances.
Optimal Coding for Multi-core CPU leads to extreme low CPU usage and RAM usage.
Optimal for most MIDI keyboards.

Harmony Rendering Engine
Rendering Engine is a ground breaking technology developed to give
physical modeling instruments more reality in sound compared to sample
libraries.The first step in Harmony Rendering Engine is using a group
multi phase filters to separated all harmony components in an
instrumental sound. After this step, we could obtain a series of
harmony components.The second step is mapping the harmony components to
the physical modeling skeleton and then rendering to the final result.
main advantage of Harmony Rendering Engine is that the CPU usage does
not affect too much by polyphony numbers. For under heavy duty
situation, the CPU usage by Harmony Rendering Engine is 3 times as mono
in maximum. But in a sample player, 128 polyphonies often mean 128
times CPU consumption compared to mono. So harmony rendering will lower
CPU usage a lot. Harmony Rendering Engine will also be limited in size.
It is much less in size than sanples.
Rendering Engine also could give the sounds more color when cooperated
with Multi-Dimension Vector Synthesis technology.
Multi-Dimension Vector Synthesis
Vector Synthesis (MDVS in short) is a patented technology developed for
next generation physical modeling. MDVS takes all factors as dimensions
and modeling the behavior between each of them. For example, MDVS takes
pitch, velocity and time as three dimensions and modeling the behavior
between them. The result of MDVS leads to a very accurate model.
with Harmony Rendering Engine and Multi-Dimension Vector Synthesis,
Optimal Coding makes the CPU usage even lower than a sample player!
Also the RAM usage is subtle and the plug-in could be loaded within two
seconds, that’s really fast. For today’s quad-core system, Supreme
Pianos consume less than 2% CPU under heavy duty (over 64 polyphonies).
And in a very old system like Pentium III 533, the CPU usage remains
20% maximum under heavy duty.
usage under heavy duty on a quad core system. Kontakt 2 is using an
800MB piano sample library for simple sample playback. You could see
Supreme Pianos cost only 50% CPU of a sample player! For other physical
modeling competitors, Supreme Pianos could win with ease.
real pianos the strings doesn't stop vibrating immediately after you
release the key, and if you press the sustain pedal in that short
interval while the string is still vibrating, you could allow it to
sound again and continue from that velocity point. This works mainly
for the bass notes.
Also when you hold
one key and press the pedal. The sound will naturally switch to pedal
down sounds. Repedalling feature enable Supreme Pianos sound more
nature than others when you press the pedal. And what is more,
different pedal value (CC64) in Supreme Piano result different sounds
while others have only two values.
Real Dynamic Response System
Real Dynamic Response System accurately represents real grand piano’s
dynamic response. The Real Piano’s dynamic response differs from what
we hear in sample library. Every note of the real grand has its own
dynamic response. For example, low note A0 could have 33dB dynamic
range while High note C8 has a 53dB dynamic range.

and using interpolation. But that is not true piano dynamic
Non-Linear Dynamic Response of Piano
what is more, this dynamic response is a non-linear variation in level
that has complex hills and valleys. Real Dynamic Response System let
every notes have individual dynamic response which could accurately
represents real grand piano’s dynamic response. The result of Real
Dynamic Response System is supernatural and brilliant sounding.
we know that MIDI has only 128 velocity values. Real Dynamic Response
System successfully exceeds this limit and could have a range over 16
millions velocity levels. The result of this leads to an exquisite
The 264-strings Sympathetic Resonance System
Resonance happens when you hold some notes while hit another note. The
strings sympathetic resonate with each other. The pitch and volume are
determined by note and also the holding note. So it is a very complex
system that other Piano VSTi and sample library failed to recreates
before. Supreme Pianos uses 264-strings Sympathetic Resonance System
that first time recreates the whole behavior.
