Orange Tree Samples Passion Flute sample library for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples has announced the release of the Passion Flute, a jazz-rock sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Orange Tree Samples Passion Flute

This extensive library puts you in control of an ultra-realistic Jazz-Rock flute. Whether you need an energetic flute solo or an emotive, rich lead for a melodic ballad, Passion Flute is capable of a wide range of expression.

Flutes are complex instruments with many dynamic facets of expression, and therefore are challenging to recreate with samples. That’s why rather than sampling dozens of different articulations to imitate performance techniques, we’ve used advanced scripting to give you full control over the flute performance. For example, the vibrato is completely scripted–and not just a simple LFO, but modeled from real flute vibrato–allowing you to control the vibrato depth and speed in real-time. Also, although we sampled the flute in five dynamics, we added scripting that smoothly morphs between these dynamics using mathematically-accurate equal-power crossfades. Passion Flute’s interface allows you to assign these performance elements to any MIDI continuous controller you want–or you can let the script automatically control them for you.

Passion Flute features the great Jazz flutist/composer, Mattan Klein. Mattan performs all over the world, and has played at places such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington DC, and many other prestigious venues. He also was featured at the Tel Aviv International Jazz Festival in 2009 and the Ottawa International Writers Festival. In addition to touring North America, Mattan has toured Brazil, Europe, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.

We sampled the flute in 48,000 kHz, 24-bit, which is a great balance between size on your hard drive (affecting the library’s load time and memory usage) and audio fidelity. That’s over 4,600 samples, totaling 1.15 GB of flute samples. Furthermore, we sampled the flute with five different microphones, everything from modern condenser mics to a vintage ribbon mic, giving you flexibility to mix the flute however you want–or pick from the included factory presets. The mic signals were completely unaffected, so Passion Flute’s real-time mixing control starts all the way back with the raw audio signals. Speaking of mixing, we also included the ability to import and export your flute mix presets. That way, you can easily share them with other Passion Flute users.

Passion Flute features

  • 4x round robin, 5 morphing dynamic layers.
  • Modeled vibrato, with real-time control over speed and depth.
  • Overblown notes, playable harmonics.
  • Effects and phrases including growls, fluttertonguing, screams, and much more.
  • Physically modeled flute fingerings (including 150+ alternate fingerings) for accurate key noises and realistic legato.
  • Wind/breath controller compatible.
  • 5 mic positions with extensive mixing engine included.
  • Sampled in 24-bit / 48 KHz.

Passion Flute is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until December 31st, 2011 (regular $129 USD). Passion Flute requires the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontkat 4/5.

Cinematic Tension releases Jungle Flute FX for Kontakt

Cinematic Tension Jungle Flute FX

Cinematic Tension has released Jungle Flute FX, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

If your next scoring assignment takes your music into a jungle to rescue POWs, slaughter aliens, make a difficult shot from a mile away, or track down terrorists… you also need JUNGLE FLUTE FX in your arsenal of samples.

For this sample set, I found a very nice custom Moseno Flute, which is a South American Bamboo Flute sampled, and as usual mangled a few of the recorded samples to make this simple flute instrument a fully realized playable tension suite.

Jungle Flute FX features

  • 10 Kontakt patches in total.
  • 1 phrase patch with 12 Phrases.
  • 1 Trill Patch with 3 Pitched Trill Phrases.
  • 2 Shorts patches, chromatically presented, one with 3 Velocity Layers.
  • 4 Pads… think ambient material from Gary Changs SNIPER score.
  • 1 Marcato patch which is chromatically presented which makes it a very nice lyrical instrument.
  • Controllable reverb. A reverb On / Off button is right on the GUI (starts in the ON position).
  • Mod wheel controls the attack (as well as a knob on the GUI to get even more dynamic control.

Jungle Flute FX is available to purchase for $12 USD.

Amit Zoran posted a video in which he shows a fully functional flute printed using the Objet Connex500 3D printer (which handles multiple materials at the same time).

Our goal is to produce a flute using 3D printer technologies, a flute that is compatible with a traditional concert flute both acoustically and ergonomically.
