Like the transient beauty of Sakura (Japanese for Cherry Blossom), the sound of stringed instruments blossoms and fades. Image-Line brings you ‘Sakura’, the string physical modelling instrument, to express the delicacy and beauty of stringed sounds.

Sakura can reproduce the delicate pluck of a single string, a violins bowing or the sonorous resonance of a grand piano. Most importantly, the curious musician can take control of every aspect of the simulation to create fantastic instruments. Ever wanted to know what a 20 foot guitar sounded like? Or a bowed piano? Now you can find out, Sakura opens up a world of string modelling possibilities, why not download the Sakura demo and try it for yourself. The Sakurazensen is coming, be there to experience it.

Virtual modelling in Sakura follows a 5 stage hanami-process :

  • Contact - An impulse, the mechanical contact with the string, is first generated then shaped to simulate plucks, picks, scrapes,hammers, taps or humble fingers.
  • Vibration - Sakura’s dual string model then gives the operator control over a wide range of parameters such as damping, tension, positioning and string properties.
  • String interaction – The dual strings are then mixed, panned and enveloped to simulate interactions.
  • Resonance - The string/s vibration then interacts with an 8-resonator ‘body simulator’ to create the size, material and shape ofthe instrument
  • Acoustics - Virtual acoustic space is then simulated with chorus, delay and reverberation effects.

Terms:

  • Sakura: Japanese for Cherry Blossom.
  • Hanami: The custom of enjoying the beauty of Sakura.
  • Sakurazensen: The Sakura-front as it moves across Japan with the developing season.
