Spitfire Audio has released Arctic Swells, bringing the student violin and a handmade Native American flute from Jon Meyer’s Flute+Violin Kontakt sample library to the free LABS series of virtual instruments.
By blending together the rises and falls of two instruments — a violin, and a handmade Native American flute — musician and sound maker Jon Meyer has created this unique hybrid instrument.
Recorded using Neumann KM84s and Coles 4038s, for a close sound, the result is icy, undulating swells and decays, with pitched-down samples creating low, sustained drones.
The instrument is a free download for the Spitfire Audio App, which is also free.
