Currently, it is used by a wide range of users from professionals to beginners in many categories. “Venova”, which was released in 2017, was born out of the idea that “more people can enjoy playing wind instruments more easily, more freely, and more.” The most distinctive feature of the “branch tube structure” is the application of the “branch management theory” used in the virtual acoustic sound source by digital signal processing, which was installed in our synthesizer “VL1” released in 1993. is.
