Recorded with a mixable selection of the finest valve, ribbon and perspective mics, each instrument contains essential articulations that best capture both the instrument and the performance, as well as incredible artisan articulations that bring Andy's flutes to life. For ease of use alongside standard articulation switching are beautifully designed performance patches that respond intelligently to the way you play.
