Heavyocity Media has announced the release of a collection of core elements from the VENTO: Modern Woodwinds cinematic woodwinds instrument.

Like its string and brass Essentials predecessors, VENTO Essentials is Heavyocity’s answer to the traditional, in this case, delivering a fresh and original take on what woodwinds are capable of in modern scores.

A seamless Full Ensemble preset places the unique character of a 12-piece woodwinds orchestra at your fingertips, featuring six sections (flutes, oboes, clarinets, contra bass clarinet, bassoon, and contra bassoon) and six articulations (sustains, staccatos, crescendos, subtle pulses, random vibratos, and cluster crescendos).

Add in 25 all-new Hybrid snapshots and 36 Loops, and VENTO Essentials brims with musical possibility, delivering an inspiring collection of woodwinds for composers of all budgets and levels of experience.

“The goal with VENTO was to create a woodwinds instrument that was more conducive to modern scoring,” says Ari Winters, Creative Director/Senior Partner, Heavyocity.

“And now with VENTO Essentials, we’re delivering that same woodwinds experience to composers at every stage of their music-making journey.”
