Description

Sordina is an instrument mute emulator.  It allows you to apply a wide range of mutes to your unmuted virtual instruments or live recordings.

Sordina works by using detailed impulse responses created through the analysis of real-world recordings of muted and un-muted instruments. The results are very accurate reproductions of the genuine mutes.

Here is a recording of a trombone without a mute.

Here’s an A/B comparison of the same instrument playing with a real bucket mute and the original unmuted recording being processed by Sordina’s bucket mute emulator.




Here’s another A/B comparison of a real mute and one of Sordina’s virtual mutes. This time it’s a cup mute. Again Sordina is processing the original unmuted recording.


Easy to use

Sordina mute emulator main interface

Sordina has a clean, easy to use interface that helps you get started really quickly. Simply place the plugin on an instrument track, select a mute, and tweak the volume. For more detailed control over the sound there is a built-in filter and mix control knob.

The on screen meters and FFT analyser provide a real-time picture of how Sordina is colouring the incoming audio.

Wah Wah

Mutes such as the trumpet’s harmon and plunger include a playable wah-wah control. When a compatible mute is selected the on-screen Wah knob is activated and can be controlled in real-time using host automation.

Presets

Sordina contains over 120 different brass and saxophone mutes. All of these have been carefully organised into a three tier preset browser. It’s easy to find the mute you are looking for by navigating the menus or using the built in text search. You can also mark your favourite mutes to make it even quicker to find them.

FAQ

Does Sordina work inside Sibelius?

Partially… for an unknown reason only some of the mutes work in Sibelius. This is an issue I’m working to resolve.

Does Sordina work with Pro-Tools?

No. Pro-Tools doesn’t support the VST plugin format.
