This is a next-gen, deeply sampled library featuring the talents of the greatest woodwind players in London today. Recorded to tape via the finest signal chain in the arguably finest room. This standalone volume contains a selection of essential articulations curated by multi award winning composers and musicians. The module features multiple (UP TO 8) round robins, dynamic layers and easy to use, fully functional legato with control of vibrato. Both players are recorded in situ so sit perfectly with all of our orchestra products recorded in the hall at Air Lyndhurst but with a selection of microphone perspectives, can also provide intimate music save as part of a duet accompanied by nothing more than a harp for example.
BML Additional Flutes consists of the sensuous tones of the Alto Flute and the irrepressible Piccolo, playing in the hall at Air Studios. Composers have been travelling the world over for many years now, our strings are formidable here in London alongside our woodwinds and brass. With the numerous symphony and chamber orchestras, the three major opera houses, several world class concert halls and 80+ theatre pits and buzzing film business in London alone. We have plenty of excellent woods players to pick from!
The alto flute is a more nobel instrument than it's soprano cousin. It became familiar to our ears in it's artful use from the likes of Lalo Schifrin and Henry Mancini in the 1970s, and is often used to convey sensuality and "adult" themes when employed with use of flutter tonguing! It is safe to say the alto flute is the cooler more laid back elder brother of the soprano. The piccolo on the other hand is the insuppressible bastard child of the orchestra that cannot be silenced. Even one solitary player can add the absolute "take the orchestra to eleven" with it's searing rips and overblows. Essential for any composer wishing to create blistering action cues and horror stings.
