Here is what they say about it:
When it comes to solo brass, only the real thing can deliver the full expression and authentic character of the instrument. With its fatter, darker tone, in the hands of a skilled player, the Flugelhorn can bring a mellow and airy timbre full of character to almost any musical project. Flugelhorn 2 is part of the Elastik Instrument Series and features the outstanding playing of Axel Beineke. The sound and playing in Flugelhorn 2 capture the instruments character to perfection, creating a sophisticated, late-night, intimate mood.
With over 1.4 GB of sample data, the nearly 700 loops and phrases are arranged into 43 performance folders. Each folder contains between 12 and 21 individual phrases that can easily be combined to create a full solo performance. The playing is soft, breezy and light and the sound is deep, breathy and expressive. The original recording tempos span 60 to 90 BPM. Elastik's tempo manipulation tools allow you to easily fit the sample content into your project tempo, while the ReTune feature allow you to add further melodic variations if required or to combine phrases from different folders.
The sound and style is reminiscent of Jazz Flugelhorn maestro Till Brönner and these soulful lead lines would work well for RnB, Soul, LoFi, Lounge and, of course, Jazz. Flugelhorn 2 complements other releases from the Instrument Series like Acoustic Bass 2, Downtempo Guitar or Tenor Saxophone.
Flugelhorn was played by Axel Beineke whose credits include Al Porcino Big Band, Albert Mangelsdorff, Connexion Latina, Charly Antolini, NDR-Big Band, Herb Geller, Roger Cicero and many more.
The Elastik player allows you to adapt any loop to your current project in BPM, scale and pitch. The intuitive browser manages all Elastik libraries for immediate access to all samples. This way, loops from Flugelhorn 2 can be combined easily with all installed Elastik libraries. Functions such as resample, formant and reverse as well as an effective multi mode filter enable creative sounddesign.
Flugelhorn is available for €49.00 from Ueberschall.
