  • The iconic sound of cinema

    Fast, flowing, and fun flute and piccolo performances, with dazzling legato patches, captured within the cinematic acoustics of Abbey Road Studio One. This stand-alone, self-contained library will bring that distinctive Abbey Road magic to your compositions. It also makes the perfect accompaniment to Abbey Road One: Orchestral Foundations.

    The classic pairing of flutes and piccolo, doubling an octave higher, performed by London’s first-call session players, is presented here as pre-orchestrated patches giving you instant access to an immediately recognisable sound as heard in scores by John Williams, John Powell and countless others. The library offers essential articulations, including stunning legatos, longs, staccatos, and marcatos, as well as major and minor mordents. There’s everything you need to create beautiful, flowing lines and incredibly agile, scurrying flurries of sound.

    Wondrous Flutes is available to purchase as a stand-alone library or as a brilliant addition to Abbey Road One: Orchestral Foundations. You can also purchase this as part of Abbey Road One: The Collection and save 30%.

    Do I need to own Abbey Road One: Orchestral Foundations to buy this library?

    No, this library will act as a stand alone library, opening up inside the Abbey Road One plug-in. But if you were to own Abbey Road One Orchestral Foundations, it will work seamlessly together.

    How does your dedicated plug-in work?

    Our dedicated plug-in libraries work as standalone instruments in your DAW, meaning that no serial number is provided and the authorisation process happens during your download. We provide an AU, VST2, VST3 and an AAX, so as long as your chosen DAW supports one of those plug-in formats, you’re good to go. This library is also NKS compatible.

    Can I use this library on more than one computer?

    Yes, this is a single user license, but our EULA allows for installation on up to two computers at a time.
