After much recording, production, tireless testing, re-testing and finally refining the end result, we are very happy to bring you the complete Master Solo Woodwinds bundle, which contains meticulously sampled solo flute, piccolo, oboe, clarinet and bassoon sampled Kontakt instruments (will work in Kontakt 4 and all higher versions - but not the free Kontakt "player").
These instruments will take anything you throw at them - with a legato mode that can adapt to slow and extremely fast playing in a single phrase with no extra effort/keyswitching on your part, simply open and play! See our video demos below.
- Over 70,000+ WAV files/samples in this instrument alone!
- Multiple legato modes at varying dynamics
- Staccatos and shorter Staccatissimos to craft realistic short note passages
- Intuitive trills function allowing easy playing of any trills/tremolos up to a perfect 5th in width! (seven chromatic notes - C to G for example)
- Ability to control level of mechanical noises of the woodwind instruments, which also follows your performance
- Flutter tonguing, Triple tonguing and much more...
Full list of articulations:
Legato with recorded vibrato
Legato without vibrato
Polyphonic/Chord playing with vibrato
Polyphonic/Chord playing without vibrato
Key Noises (able to play in isolation if needed as well)
Please note, as vibrato on the Clarinet is not a standard technique, we have not included it, but the other four instruments all include vibrato legato as WELL as non vibrato legato and sustains, all at multiple crossfade-able dynamic layers (MIDI CC1/Mod Wheel).
You are even able to control the level/volume of the key sounds/mechanics of the instruments, and the sound of the flautist pressing the keys will also be louder depending on how hard you press the key on your MIDI keyboard (velocity).
One feature we are exceptionally proud of is the intuitive trills articulation system, which allows you to play any trill/tremolo within the flute's playable range up to a perfect fifth (seven chromatic notes)... See the demo video for an insight in to how this works!
Multiple sets of true legato intervals were recorded both with and without vibrato, for the ultimate in realistic sounding performance.
Select this articulation, and you can play a trill or tremolo between any two notes by holding them down on the keyboard (up to seven notes apart/a perfect fifth). See the video demo below for a demonstration of this.
These woodwind instruments owe part of the character of their sound to the mechanics of the instrument, so we decided to come up with something that allows some form of control over this subtle characteristic in timbre. What we ended up with was a knob that can control the level of mechanical noise that is audible from the instrument. You can turn this up, or off completely in the GUI to set the average level that seems right, and it will then, on top of this, react to the velocity of your own playing, much like it would a real player pressing harder or softer.
This library requires the FULL VERSION of Kontakt 4 (not Kontakt "player") or any higher version (so it will also run in Kontakt 5 perfectly).
