Embertone has launched its new virtual instrument Popelka Bassoon, featuring recordings by professional bassoonist Julie Popelka.

Embertone Popelka Bassoon

If you’re looking for the filet mignon of bassoons, this one isn’t for you. Popelka Bassoon is a raw + organic quinoa stew with no artificial flavoring. In other words, we recorded Julie’s natural, intimate tone! Then we let it marinate for a handful of years in our high-security Ember-Vault(tm), and finally, added our signature stamp on it (aka blood sweat and tears) to bring you this lovely, quirky, and very expressive library.

Sampled in the same vein as Chapman Trumpet, but loaded with all the advanced features and improvements that you’ve come to expect from an Embertone release, Popelka Bassoon is sure to dance its way from the forest and into the warm protection of your composing arsenal. It’s one of our most endearing instruments to date.

Popelka Bassoon features

  • Quirky, Expressive, intimate.
  • All of our newest programming techniques.
  • 2 recorded dynamics (2,000+ legato samples).
  • Complete Vibrato Speed and Intensity/Dynamics Control.
  • Intuitive Staccatos and Marcatos.

Popelka Bassoon for Kontakt 5.5 or higher (full version) is available for the intro price of $29 USD until November 8th, 2019 (regular $39 USD).
