I don't really know what the ideal nay (middle-eastern cane flute) sound would be, this doesn't sound quite how I'd expect (more full and consistent tone) but it makes a usable, very breathy flute sound that seems quite convincingly 'real' in a mix if programmed with care. If for some reason you want a 1960s/70s style jazzy-film soundtrack flute, try this.

The scale corrector takes a little puzzling to figure out - a brief readme file would help here but otherwise lack of docs not a problem because there is nothing else to document. No other controls over the sound, which is a drawback, but the basic sound is good quality with no harsh freqencies.

A little heavier on CPU than you'd expect for such a simple instrument (~100MHz) but it's polyphonic so you'll never need more than one instance of it. For some reason I like the airbrush-accident GUI, small but it cheers up a grey VST desktop.

Now I've run out of useful things to say so this last sentence is just to get the review up to the minimum 1000 characters.Read Review

This sound is off-key.
