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).

Soundiron Little Wooden Flutes

Soundiron has announced the release of Little Wooden Flutes, an ethnic flute library that combines playable multisamples with a deep collection of beautiful live performance phrases.

We captured the soul of 3 different traditional flutes from two continents in two different environments, including a unique 7-hole carved rosewood Indian Venu flute and larger 8-hole walnut and cedar Native American plains flutes. At only $50, it’s an outstanding value.

The Venu was recorded in a close double-mic configuration in a dry studio environment to soak up every subtle nuance and full tonal clarity. This section features chromatic sustains and staccatos in three different types – standard, trilled and overtone. Sustains include 2X round robins per note and key release. Staccatos include 8X round robin per note.

The Venu phrases are divided into different keys. Each set can be transposed, tempo-synched, time-stretched, cropped, legato-blended and customized in real-time through our unique phrase sequencer and master control interface. You can custom mix and pan the two Neumann microphone choices (vintage omni and modern cardiod) to create your own robust tonal blend or stereo pair.

Little Wooden Flutes is available to purchase for the introductory price of $35 USD through December 25th, 2013 (30% off MSRP $50 USD).

Time+Space intros Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases by Zero-G

Zero-G Pepetuo Live Flute Phrases

Time+Space has announced the release of Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases, a new Zero-G library

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.
