  • A distinctive collection of exceptional woodwinds

    Originals Rare Flutes bestows an extraordinary collection of flutes, sourced from all over the globe, performed by world renowned flautist, Andy Findon. This library contains woodwinds, such as the Bansuri and Chinese bamboo flute, to add a unique palette to your compositions.

    Delicate and exquisite, these artisanal instruments were purposefully recorded dry in order to allow more control over the sound. With a central focus on the tone of each woodwind and three distinctive signals, (Close, Room and Super Reverb) you have the option to give your sound warmth, sharpness or ambiance — or blend all three signals to create something truly exquisite.
