Beautifully exotic flutes

Five beautifully exotic flutes, played by a true master. Curated and scripted to work straight out of the box for instant inspiration, this collection includes a Chinese Bamboo Flute, Contrabass Flute, Fujara, Ocarina & Shakuhachi. 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.

After having trained as an orchestral flautist at the Royal College of Music, Andy Findon developed a keen interest in exotic, lesser known flutes and wind instruments. He now plays principal flute for The National Symphony Orchestra, and has performed for a wide range of renowned international artists, composers, arrangers and producers.The early 80s saw the start of his work with the Michael Nyman Band, and his West End credits include work in numerous Andrew Lloyd Webber productions.


The Overview Panel

This is the main interface for melodic instruments. Its default view displays all available playing techniques, has a simple microphone mixer and includes the main feature controllers.

General Controls Panel

This view allows further in-depth control of the instrument, showing all available signals and feature controllers, as well as the ability to purge techniques from memory to reduce system usage.

The Ostinatum

In this view you can add notes to a pattern sequencer, select which key it triggers on and then play for instant ostinato creation. It’s like an arpeggiator on a synthesiser.
