Ueberschall has released Flugelhorn, a new Elastik soundbank that enables you to create a "Jazzy mood in an instant".
Featuring the virtuoso playing of Gary Winters, this library brings you the smooth tones of the solo Flugelhorn. Warmer, darker and less strident than the trumpet, this instrument is characteristic of classic jazz from the 1930s to the present day.
With over 900 MB of material spread across 700 loops and organized into folders by both tempo and key, the sound of the instrument is presented in an intimate, dry, fashion, ready for you to apply just the right amount of ambience for your production. All licks are available as dry versions, without any E.Q.-, compressor- or reverb effects. Tempos span 70 to 128 BPM and phrases move from the sparse and melancholic through to the frenetic and intense, so you can easily build a complete solo performance to match any musical backing.
Styles would obviously suit jazz, easy listening or lounge but, in the right context, could easily cross over into pop, electronic or film music productions.
Please note that the backing tracks being used in the demo song are not part of the library. They only serve as an example for a possible application of the loops.
Flugelhorn comes as soundbank for Ueberschall's user-friendly Elastik Sample Player. The Player allows fast changes to tempo and pitch of any loop in best sound quality. Using the integrated browser, loops of all installed Elastik-libraries can easily be mixed and matched with the loops of Flugelhorn to create individual productions.
With functions such as resample, formant and reverse as well as an effective multi mode filter, the loops of Flugelhorn can easily be modified, alienated and made suitable for different styles of music.
Flugelhorn played by Gary Winters, who has recorded with artists like Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Bootsy Collins, Lenny Kravitz, and also performed with many other notable artists.
