8Dio Productions has launched Flute Virtuoso, the 3rd release in its “Claire Virtuoso” Woodwind series produced by Emmy-nominated composer, Colin O’Malley.
The Claire Woodwinds are a deep-sampled collection of the finest woodwinds ever sampled.These are highly playable instruments soared with true emotion, effortless and equilibristic behavior.
Our Flute Virtuoso is the most expressive, playable and lifelike Flute ever sampled.
The Flute Virtuoso was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Wide). The core of the Flute 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 Flute Virtuoso library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until October 1st, 2013 (regular $139 USD).
Following the success of Animato, Spiritoso and Luminoso, Dan Graham has joined forces again with Zero-G to produce the next library in the series ‘Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases‘.
Performed by a world-class flute and piccolo player from the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded in Liverpool’s famous Parr Street studios, Perpetuo is an 8Gb collection of thousands of live recorded looped phrases designed for use with Kontakt v5.2.
Despite the sixty-two Kontakt instruments being made from pre-recorded phrases, Perpetuo remains highly controllable and flexible. This has been achieved by recording the same patterns across a wide pitch and dynamic range with many scale variations, by choosing patterns that blend in well to a wide variety of musical styles, and then by allowing you to automatically sync to the tempo of your projects with a wide variety of rhythm and scale types all controlled with key switches.
Dynamic levels pp to ff can be smoothly crossfaded by mod wheel, the ensemble size can be cleverly zoomed from solo to three players, and two mic positions (close and room) can be chosen or blended.
Perpetuo gives you the advantages of fluidity and realism of recorded patterns and phrases and yet also many of the advantages of the flexibility of a standard orchestral library.
The Perputuo library is available to purchase from Time+Space for RRP £79.95 GBP / 94.95 EUR / $119 USD.
Played by none other than the seasoned king of woodwind, Snake Davis, who has worked with the likes of George Martin, Sting, Tom Jones, M People, George Michael and Tina Turner to name just a few.
Styles range across East Asian, African, Traditional Folk and Celtic folk music, and are available to use as 2 or 4 bar loops, longer phrases, one shot flutters, held notes and trills. The sounds are all recorded with meticulous attention to detail, and can be used in pretty much any type of music, from cinematic, ambient/downtempo and orchestral to hip hop, deep house and ambient dubstep. Try reversing and looping for some really cool ambient sound effects, or chopping and resampling for some great little melodic stabs.
