- Great sound quality and timbre improvements for ALL instruments. The existing sound library has essentially been rebuilt from scratch in order to achieve higher clarity and distinction, and a more open sound.

- Solo strings have been completely reworked. Improved tuning!

- More realistic and more distinct legato transitions.

- New and improved reverb and early reflections algorithms.

- Greater dynamic range for brass instruments, and many of the woodwinds. Accents and marcato can now reach beyond FFF, for notes where it's applicable.

- Note timing and pitch algoritms have been improved, allowing psychoacoustic note separation without spoiling the musical context and beat.

- Note-to-note volume and tone differences for woodwinds and brass has been greatly improved upon (make sure Espressivo is turned off).

- Electric organ sounds were added. Use the "Electric organ", "Rock organ" and "Percussive organ" staves in Sibelius.

- Rainstick percussion sound was added.

- Strings no longer play vibrato on the lowest open string (the lowest note on the instrument) as this isn't physically possible.

- Beltree percussion sound was added. It requires manual mapping to a note head on a percussion staff, because this instrument doesn't have its own staff in Sibelius.

- Recorder sounds were replaced with samples instead of synthesis.

- Harmonica sound was added.

- Significant performance optimizations.

- Fixed issue with the NotePerfomer splash screen on OS X, where it did not always display correctly.

- Improved dynamic level consistency.

- "poco vibrato" technique is now possible, if one manually adds a dicionary entry for this mapping to the +vibrato.light sound ID. But there is now also full vibrato control over MIDI CC (see further down) which makes this somewhat redundant.

- Hi-hat, triangle and guiro sounds are now mutually exclusive as recommended by the General MIDI standard (e.g. a ringing hi-hat sound is automatically choked by a closed hi-hat note).

- Pipe organ now responds to dynamic changes.

- Doits, shakes and falls bugs have been fixed. They should now trigger for the correct note also in Sibelus 7.5 and more recent versions of Sibelius.

- Overriding base tuning, e.g. 440 Hz, is now possible using MIDI CC #102 (advanced feature, please see documentation on how to use).

- Custom pipe organ registration is now possible using MIDI CC #103 (highly advanced feature, please see documentation on how to use).

- One can now create custom sections, e.g. a2, a3, up to a8, using MIDI CC #104, as a workaround for not being able to support this as a technique in Sibelius (advanced feature, please see documentation on how to use).

- Vibrato amount can now be controlled by the user using MIDI CC #105 (advanced feature, please see documentation on how to use).

- NotePerformer's timing now more closely matches that of General MIDI, when mixing sounds from both sets.

- Polyphonic harmonics are now supported, when using artificial harmonics notation (e.g. four written notes producing two pitches, six written notes producing three pitches, etc.).

- Lots and lots (and lots) of minor playback bugs or discrepancies have been corrected and improved upon, and general musical interpretation has been extended with new additions and tweaks.

Interesante. He descargado la demo y probado con unas cuantas partituras orquestales y el resultado es bastante decente. Los sonidos son buenos; los metales y las cuerdas suenan mejor que los de Sibelius Sounds en mi opinión y la interpretación es muy buena también. La posibilidad de crear unísonos (a2, a3, etc.) me parece una mejora importante y útil, y tiene el efecto esperado cuando se escucha. Me parece muy interesante este producto de Wallander Instruments. Ojalá lo sigan mejorando cada vez más.

Yo también he descargado la demo. Y probablemente la compre. Sorprendente que ocupe poco más de un giga. La relación tamaño/calidad de sonido es increíblemente buena. Los matices de interpretación están muy conseguidos. Me parece la manera más cómoda de darle vida a Sibelius, sin meterse en fregaos de soundsets. Se consigue un sonido totalmente enseñable a gente normal (me refiero a no músicos), verbi gratia el director de un corto que te pide un sketch rápido de alguna idea y tú sólo llevas tu portátil con Sibelius.

Acabo de postear en el foro de Taller Orquestal, maravillado con esta librería: https://www.hispasonic.com/foros/mejores-cuerdas-orquestales/498594/pagina62#post4381922
