"Sea Trumpets" is a virtual musical instrument built with conch samples. Seashell horns. Conques. Shell trumpets. Conch horns. Triton's Trumpets. They have many different names, but they're made of shells of large sea snails and they have been used for thousands of years.
I sampled 35 conches of the collection of "water musician" Reinier Sijpkens, he blew them himself. It took him decades to collect that many, and now he has one of the biggest collections in the world.
"Sea Trumpets" comes with 583 samples of about 30 seconds. Two groups have seamless loops so they sound even longer. Full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher is required. The instrument will work for 30 minutes in the free Kontakt Player and can't be deeply edited.
"Sea Trumpets" comes with two presets: Ensemble and Monophonic.
Free demo available on the website.
This is really a surprise!
You really don't need to think of conches when you play it.
It is indeed somewhat meditative, reminds of a recorder / flute / soft reed instrument, and the conches were blown by a musician, who collected them.
There is a free version (which I tried here) and a full version, which I probably will buy later.
You have lots of otions for tweaking, too. And two .nkis, mono + polyphonic.
