Spitfire Audio has launched Additional Flutes, the last release in the British Modular Library series of orchestral sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Throughout 2013 Spitfire secretly went into the hall at Air Studios for the biggest round of sampling it has ever undertaken. With production complete roughly twelve months ago we announced the impossible. That we were, in just one year, going to create the first volume of a next-gen deeply sampled modular orchestral library to beat all others. The first commercial British orchestral sample library featuring the greatest players, playing the greatest instruments in the greatest space in the world. Built by composers, for composers and curated by masters in the field of sampling.
It is with the launch of this final BML module of the year, that we are fighting back the tears, wiping away the blood and dressing the wounds of 12 months hard battle. We made it, and what better way to present our freshly baked orchestral cake to you but with a ripe little cherry on top. We’re now happy to announce that you need not go anywhere else for your orchestral needs but the hall. THE BRITISH MODULAR LIBRARY VOLUME 1 IS NOW COMPLETE!
As with all BML modules Additional Flutes is a deeply sampled affair with multiple round robins, dynamic layers, vibrato control, numerous mic positions and perspectives and the eponymous Jake Jackson mixes for CPU-light ease of use.
Additional Flutes is a single volume library so unlike ‘essential articulations’ or ‘Volume 1′ modules this is a very deeply sampled multi articulation module. These will get you set with everything you’d need from these instruments with both essential and additional articulations in the one module.
The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of £169 GBP until January 2nd, 2015 (RRP £229 GBP).

AfroDJMac has released Y-Roc’s Flutes, a free Ableton Live Pack featuring realistic flute sounds.
Cory Morgan, aka y-Roc, was kind enough to send me some interesting woodwinds samples. They consisted of some unusual flutes, a native flute and a bamboo flute. Each one has a slightly different timbre to them.
The samples are played with slight variations in pitch and tone, which make the finished instrument sound like an actual human played it, rather than a computer spitting back pitch-perfect robotic sounds.
The pack is a free download from AfroDJMac.

8Dio has announced the release of Piccolo Flute Virtuoso, a new Colin O’Malley’s Claire series virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Claire Woodwind Series is a deep-sampled collection of the finest virtuoso woodwind soloists ever sampled. These are highly playable instruments soared with true emotion, effortless and equilibristic behavior.
The Claire Piccolo Virtuoso is perhaps the sweetest thing we have ever sampled. It is everything you would want from the Piccolo and more. Expressive, Clean, Beautiful and Playable. The Piccolo Virtuoso was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Wide).
The core of the instrument is its highly advanced legato system, which contains both lyrical and strong legato. The legato system allows you to play legato with passionate arcs and sustains. We recorded arcs with both light, medium and strong vibrato, so you can freely sculpt your performance from the subtle to vibrant. In addition we also added trills, runs, staccattissimo, marcato and even non-tonal effects like breaths, valve sounds and natural click noises etc.
The library is available for the introductory price of $99 USD until July 1st, 2014 (regular $139 USD).
