8Dio releases Piccolo Flute Virtuoso for Kontakt

8Dio Piccolo Flute Virtuoso

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).

Samplemodeling The Flutes

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.

Ilya Efimov releases Chinese Hulusi for Kontakt

Ilya Efimov Chinese Hulusi

Ilya Efimov has released Chinese Hulusi, a new virtual ethnic folk instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The hulusi or cucurbit flute is a free-reed wind instrument from China. It is held vertically and has three bamboo pipes which pass through a gourd wind chest; the center pipe has finger holes and the outer two are typically drone pipes. It is not uncommon for a hulusi to have only one drone pipe while the second outer pipe is merely ornamental. The drone pipe has a finger hole, which allows it to be stopped.

The Hulusi library can allow a user to imitate virtually anything that a real hulusi could play. Ii8intervals were recorded for up and down legato articulations in two variants: normal legato and glissando. We have provided the ability to vary the dynamics of the instrument to convey a wide, detailed range of expression from pp to ff. Natural vibrato may be added to the sound at any time. Staccato articulations provide added realism by means of a round-robin algorythm.

Chinese Hulusi features

  • 240 MB converted NCW format, 44.1kHz/24-bit, stereo.
  • 2 natural legato types: normal and glissando.
  • 11 different articulations.
  • Realistic dynamic from p to f.
  • Two vibrato types.
  • Control of realistic vibrato.
  • Reassignable keyswitches and midi-controllers.
  • 3 modes of legato performance.
  • Detune vibrato keys.
  • Drones tune and volume control.

The library is available for 39 EUR. Requires full retail version of Kontakt 5.3+.

Spitfire releases BML Flute Consort Vol 1 + Six new LABS instruments

Spitfire Flute Consort Vol 1

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Flute Consort Vol 1, a new British Modular Library series instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

London woodwind players are considered amongst the best in the world. Where film music sessions are concerned it could be argued that you wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Woodwinds are so expressive they can be a pain to sample. So our belief is to start with the best and then work as hard as we can to honour the talent we have captured.
The Flute Consort features three of the finest players in London today one recorded solo, two recorded in unison. They are seated exactly in situ so combine the a2 patches with the solo ones for a slightly larger section whilst maintaining spectral integrity. Volume one features a selection of the most commonly asked for articulations presented with a simple, out of the box ease of use and the BML UI, learn one Spitfire GUI, learn them all.

Combined with the majesty of the hall at Air, that signal chain, that 2” tape, Jake Jackson’s mastery of the room and the mixes, and a beautifully programmed instrument that “just works”, once you try this we’re sure you’ll agree you’ve just laid your hands on something truly special.

The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £149 GBP until January 2nd, 2014 (RRP £199 GBP).

Spitfire has also launched 6 new Spitfire Labs instruments.

In our continued efforts to democratise the world of sampling, we are releasing a further 6 instruments from Christian and Paul’s secret stash! Having updated the livery of all of the labs range, we are also pleased to announce that this season’s range features the artwork of Peter Buwert, a fantastic artist and designer.

The new Labs instruments are free to existing Labs members (donation to UNICEF required).
