Music is magical. It knows a way to express every human feeling and emotion. There’s no language that compares to the communicative power of a musical motif. Vivace speaks the tongue of Fables, Myths and Sagas. Get on board and experience a sampling instrument like no other before and enrich your sound palette with exclusive musical colours.
We set out to match and then advance the full orchestral sampling line we began in 2011 with the ground-breaking and highly user-friendly composing tool, “Tutti”. Where that package brought us the dark side, “Vivace” guides us through a magical and mystical land of inspired symphonic cinematic orchestral effects, patterns, atmospheres and moods.
Vivace features tempo-synced tonal cues, each recorded in all 12 keys utilising our ITM (Intelligent tempo mapping) system so that every sample is automatically integrated perfectly into any arrangement. The pressure of tight deadlines always interferes with the creative process so we believe Vivace is an essential tool to keep orchestrating craftsmanship high in production schedules with tight deadlines and on demand client expectations.
Vivace is a dedicated performance sampling library that continues building the Sonokinetic legacy in original one-of-a-kind sampling tools for professional composers and sound designers. A vast collection with over 16,000 samples (32,000 total combination of 16 and 24 bit) propels this impressive library to new heights.
Sonokinetic is proud to set a new standard with this instrument that functions not only as a composer and sound designer’s tool but also as a learning environment: With Kontakt 5 we have upscaled the full score view to provide you with a better look under the hood and guide you through every step in full section score view.
Again, Sonokinetic sticks with its unbeatable pricing module and high quality sampling. This package is priced so competitively it really is hard to resist. We’re proud to present this instrument to composers of every level as Vivace comes shipped with the free Kontakt Player and appears integrated within the Kontakt Library panel.
Just as we have been inspired during the creation of Vivace, we hope you are moved by the sonic possibilities to blend new orchestral FX and colours like never before.
We wish you the best inspiration and creativity.

Changes in Vivace v1.2
Memory Management: The interface now contains management buttons for each cue allowing you to purge the samples for unused phrases from RAM, freeing up system resources.
Adaptive Tempo-Syncing: The sample playback within Vivace’s TMP patches can now adapt to any tempo changes in your composition, even in the middle of a playing cue. You can program any accelerando, ritardando or ritenuto effects you wish within your host sequencer and Vivace will keep to tempo automatically.
Intelligent Time Machine (ITM) Override: The ITM function syncs samples to half-time or double-time when extreme tempo values are used. This can now be turned off.
Jump In Phrase: You can now ‘jump’ between cues or variations on-the-fly without restarting each phrase by switching on the JUMP function.
Remixed Cues & Extras: Sonokinetic have remixed and corrected minor timing and balance issues with a small number of cues. Vivace 1.2 update also introduces a brand new patch, ‘Tutti Sustains’.
