DEMOS
Our demos represent playback of scores in their original form.

When other orchestral libraries feature classical music demos, they were made in a DAW.

Those demos were carefully sequenced by hand by a very skilled individual, manually adding musical phrasing to each instrument, and bear no resemblance to how that library would perform the same music directly from score in a notation software.

Our demos are an honest representation of how NotePerformer can be expected to sound. Even for a composer with no sample library experience.
We want you to know that...
  • NotePerformer adds a one-second delay to playback.
  • This is the secret to how we’re able to analyse the musical context of your score.
  • But it also means that you can’t use ReWire technology with NotePerformer.
  • And no live tempo recording with your MIDI keyboard while NotePerformer is selected for playback.
STRINGS in NotePerformer
  • Section-building is used to create authentic sections (8-8-6-6-4) from solo instruments.
  • All section members have their own random variations and intonation.
  • Section sizes can be overriden (between 2 and 8) using MIDI CC 104, or using our dedicated Sibelius and Finalescript plug-ins.
  • Sections automatically play divisi over chords.
  • We also include half section instruments for splitting any string section over two staves.
  • We automatically assign different sounds to different solo instruments.
  • Vibrato can be overridden using MIDI CC 105 (depth) and 106 (rate), or using our dedicated Sibelius plug-in.
  • Our strings automatically produce the right pitch from artificial harmonics notation.
BRASS & WW in NotePerformer
  • Natural timbre changes from ppp to fff.
  • Custom section-building (a2, a3, ... between 2 and 8) using MIDI CC 104, or using our dedicated Sibelius and Finalescript plug-ins.
  • We automatically assign different sounds to different solo instruments.
  • Vibrato can be overridden using MIDI CC 105 (depth) and 106 (rate), or using our dedicated Sibelius plug-in.
  • All our brass include five different sordinos.
  • Accents and marcato may even momentarily reach beyond fff.
OTHER SOUNDS in NotePerformer
  • Our pipe organ supports custom registration using our dedicated Sibelius plug-in.
  • For Finale or Dorico users we calculate the MIDI CC valueproducing a certain organ registration—directly on our website, if you follow this link.
  • Most pitched mallet percussion include a bowed variant.
  • Our highly regarded theremin glides naturally between slurred notes.
  • Fast tremolos are automatically truncated to a natural speed.
