The flutes range from sweet and delicate to eerie, breathy and complex. In contrast, there are the wild, strange and stirring timbres of ethnic reed instruments, bagpipes and African horns.
Psart of the World Winds library's strength lies in its articulations plus straight notes. There are up and down bends, various types of grace notes, and authentic phrases and performances. These can be combined easily to provide a completely realistic delivery, sounding just like a genuine player. To avoid tuning clashes, all samples are presented at concert pitch; alternatively, if you prefer to hear the instruments in their purest form, 'raw' programs have been supplied which demonstrate the native tuning, scales and ranges. There are also atmospheric programs which work well for pads and textures.
World Winds is a must-have for film, TV and media composers, World Music, Rock, Pop and contemporary Classical composers and performers, creative keyboardists and programmers, and anyone with an ear for sweet instrumental sounds!
