"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 library from Tangent Edge Instruments is a jewel imho! I'd played it very slow with convolution reverb and it is like a therapy. All stress was gone! I think it's an amazing instrument for underscore of nature pictures! The download includes 3 Kontakt Versions (3.5, 4.24 and 5.24). The buttons in the user interface could be a bit bigger, so I end with 9 points! So, for everybody who likes unusual sound, try it! Frank LorenzRead more

Lovely instrument! A rare sound, programmed nicely. You're getting a monophonic "solo" instrument and a ployphonic "ensemble" version. Highly recommended.
