As part of their "Modular Series" launched earlier this year with the Oboes Module, Westgate Studios recently released the Flutes Module for Gigastudio 3.1+ and Kontakt 2.1+.
The Flutes module features 24 bit samples recorded using the same methods as the previous Oboes Module. On the DVD you will find a comprehensive set of patches for Solo Piccolo, Solo Flute, Solo Alto Flute and Flute Section.
The most important feature of this library is the Legato playing style. These patches contain not only expressive long notes, but also true legato interval samples that were recorded as the musicians played every note up and down from 1 half-step all the way up to a full octave. And the good news is that you don't have to load any special tools to control them because the Legato effect is powered by Gigastudio's imidi rules and Kontakt's scripting engine. Within this same instrument you can vary the Attack Strength of each note, control the use of Release Samples, and play Same-Note Legato Repetitions in any rhythm or tempo.
Along with these highlights you'll also find everything you've come to expect from today's modern woodwind libraries: Staccato and Marcato articulations, Flutter-tongue, Trills, Runs, Stabs and changing dynamics such as Crescendo, Diminuendo, and Fortepiano. Plus Overblown Staccatos are included for that signature “Jazz Flute” sound.
With an MSRP of $120, the Flutes Module is available on DVD for either Gigastudio 3.1 or Kontakt 2.1. The samples included are 24bit\44.1k\stereo recordings of Solo Piccolo, Solo Flute, Solo Alto Flute and Flute Section. Available in the same formats, the earlier released Oboes Module has an MSRP of $100. A French Horns Module is currently in development.
