"...it´s the most sophisticated virtual flute we´ve seen thus far, and the sound quality is tops." – Computer Music
Eduardo Tarilonte is well known for his 5 star Anthology series. The same award winning attention to detail has been applied to this latest release. Retro Flute is not a “yet another flute library.”
Above and beyond the extreme scripted features and flawless recording/sampling quality, Retro Flute provides the user with something new and innovative.
Though it will sit extremely well in a Cinematic, Classical or Jazz ensemble track, it is the retro sound used by many progressive rock artists that produces a pure and powerful tone.
Perhaps the most exciting feature of Retro Flute is the ability to generate the popular sung style, best described as the flute being sung through as it is sounding. This mix of instrument and vocalist has never been sampled before.
