OS X Version of Synful Orchestra Released

Synful has announced availability of Synful Orchestra for Max OS X in AU and VST formats.

Featuring the company's "Reconstructive Phrase Modeling" (RPM), now Mac users can also benefit from the expressivity and ease of use of Synful Orchestra. Synthesis is accomplished by selecting short phrase fragments from a database of idiomatic recorded instrumental phrases. The fragments, often corresponding to transitions between notes, are morphed in pitch and time and spliced together in real-time to form the synthesizer output.

Phrases are stored and synthesized using a proprietary additive synthesis format that not only facilitates flexible morphing and splicing but also greatly reduces the size of the database compared to traditional sampling. The entire Synful Orchestra fits in just 32M of memory.
