CMusic Productions have released another winner. This time it is a Solo Flugelhorn Library.

Although not an instrument currently in the forefront of "pop" music, a brief foray into the music of artists such as Chuck Mangione, Art Farmer and Joe Bishop will provide abundant reasons to love this instrument if you don't already. Its ability to produce smokey, silky-smooth tones can make the film/game composer's work of searching for that "right" instrument to create a sensual or laid-back mood for their movie/game scene easy.

CMusic Pro's engineers have captured an ambient sound that is - for lack of better terms - clean and real. I appreciate the developers not overly processing the finished samples (unlike many virtual instrument libraries) thereby allowing you to craft your finished composition with your own plugin effects in whatever way you desire. That being said, they have included six types of convolution reverb with variations of each, that will suitably "embellish" the signal should you so desire.

If you already own any of its predecessors, Solo Flugelhorn Library's straight-forward GUI and functionality will be familiar and as ever, happily user-friendly. The generously-sampled library includes a plethora of essential articulations that will enable even the "creatively-challenged" to construct believable, realistic-sounding flugelhorn compositions.

This is another fine addition for any musician's toolbox. If you are looking to create something with a "smooth vibe" I highly recommend this. As with its CMusic Productions' musical stablemates, it is pretty much without peer in the virtual instrument realm - especially at this price-point. If you don't have this and/or some of its mates (I'm really fond the Solo Alto Sax) - especially in view of CMusic Pro's frequent generous sales promotions, its almost inexcusable.

Personally I think it sounds like a synth, but what can you expect from USD59????

Sound wise I find the products from Sample Modelling the best. They are also more expencive and to make them sound like "real" you either need a breath controller, an expression pedal or work hard with automation writing. I find none of the CMusic Production usable. They do have a nice entry level price wise but they sound "not real" and like a synth. In fact there are synths that do a close simulation that I rather prefer if I were looking for a "synth brass sound".

Curious that "The Translator" has no KVR posts, other than 2 reviews for different CMusic products?

CMusic were busted on KVR once before for using a shill account to discuss/hype their product. So it wouldn't surprise me if they were at it again.

It is indeed strange that someone gives this inferior product a perfect 10.
