modelonia    VST AU & VST

is a novel physical-modelling synthesizer which uses a hybrid of two distinct model 'types'-
a plucked-string model, and a blown-bore (ie trumpet-type) model.

Each model may be used simultaneously, and the signal path allows cross-modulation between the two models for more interesting and complex tones.

Modelonia is not simply an emulation of acoustic instruments, nor is it your standard VSTi synth.
Advanced physical modeling technology has been used to enable "live" and expressive new sounds and harmonic textures.

Modelonia is designed to be the first compact multi-purpose virtual sythesizer which uses the physical-modelling technique as the only sound source and does not enhance it with multi-effects or sweepable filters (VFC in the Subctractive tradition), Modelonia sound shaping ability relies solely on physical-modelling.
