Samplemodeling has announced the release of The Flutes, a virtual instrument library featuring the C-flute, piccolo, alto and bass flutes.
Flutes use samples as a base material, chromatically performed by a professional player over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument. But the analogy with a sample based library ends here.
The underlying, proprietary technology allows continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants. Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato, vibrato, squeak, overblow, ornamentations & trills, pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.
The Flutes for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for 229 EUR (+VAT, if applicable). Sample Modeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount, available until June 15th, 2014.
