Impact Soundworks releases "Ventus Ethnic Winds - Pan Flutes" for Kontakt

Impact Soundworks

Impact Soundworks has announced the release of the fourth entry into its Ventus Ethnic Winds series of deeply-sampled solo ethnic woodwinds virtual instruments for Kontakt, Ventus Ethnic Winds - Pan Flutes, featuring two instruments in one — the versatile nai pan flute (from Romania) and powerful toyo bass pan flute (from Andean Peru and Bolivia).

Here's what they say: "Pan flutes (or pan pipes) are instruments that developed independently all over the world, featuring tuned pipes or tubes created from various kinds of wood or reed. For our library, we sampled the versatile Romanian nai, whose beautiful and breathy tone is instantly recognizable from countless film scores and albums. The nai offers a fairly large pitch range compared to many pan flutes, making it ideal as both a melodic and accompanying instrument for many styles."

"We paired this instrument with a pan flute from an entirely different region - the powerful, bassy toyo, originating in the Andean Peru and Bolivia. So large is the toyo that it was traditionally played by two people; these performers (usually women), would become musically bonded and play only with each other. The toyo belongs to a greater family of pan flutes known as siku, which in turn gives its name to the musical genre known as sikuri."

"These two flutes were a perfect fit for the Ventus series. Their bright, breathy tones can easily be used for soft and ambient music, but they are also capable of extremely bright and agile playing as well with sharp staccatos, pops, and tongued notes. The majesty of pan flutes is particularly suited for music evoking nature, wind, sky, and sea."

"Our pan flute library is performed by Josh Plotner, who captured all key articulations and playing techniques of the instrument: sustains, ornaments, staccatos, legato, portamento, bends, phrases and much more."

Features:

  • Unified Ventus interface.
  • Dozens of under-the-hood tweaking controls.
  • Ornament system for effortless authentic performances.
  • Phrase playback editor.
  • Easy FX rack with analog-modeled EQ, compressor, delay & reverb.
  • TACT - Total Articulation Control Technology for easy customization of all playing techniques.

Content:

  • Over 6,200 24-bit samples recorded through warm ribbon & room mics.
  • 6 types of sustain articulations.
  • 3 types of staccatos.
  • 3 different release ornaments.
  • Bends, vibrato, extended techniques.
  • Over 650 phrases. multiple lengths & styles.
  • Phrases also provided as WAV.

Ventus Ethnic Winds - Pan Flutes can be purchased and digitally downloaded directly from Impact Soundworks for $99.00 USD (Note that existing Ventus Ethnic Winds series owners receive an increasing discount, depending on the number of Ventus Ethnic Winds libraries already owned.)

Ventus Ethnic Winds - Pan Flutes requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt (5.5.2 or higher).
