Soundiron teamed up with Argentinian Pan Flute master and Antara Records founder Alejandro Fatur to bring you this outstanding collection of four traditional Argentinian pan flutes, exploring a broad key range and variety of chromatic articulations, expressive effects and phrases.
The Toyo covers the bass range, at well over a meter in length with rich sub-harmonics and a fat, breathy tone. The Zanca and Malta span the lower and upper mid-range. Finally, the Ch’ulli reaches into the soprano range.
You can play the entire range as a combined instrument or choose individual flutes. The sustains and 3 staccato speeds offer your choice of clean non-vibrato, vibrato and whispering flautando styles, in both piano and forte dynamics.
The crescendo and decrescendo expressions and special flute effects add plenty of spice to the mix. All chromatic articulations feature round robin. The level of depth and detail lets you craft lush, natural pan flute arrangements, while our advanced sound-shaping and performance features give you the freedom to explore.
To capture the feel of a live pan flute in the hands of an expert, Alejandro also recorded thousands of beautiful melodic phrases for each of the pan flutes, performing a total of well over 10,000 distinct melodic elements. The phrases are organized by flute, tempo, musical key and performance style. You can trigger them individually with your keyboard or sequence them in the phrase sequencer, with full control over tempo, offset, release, pitch and more.
The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more. We've also included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. A customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. Included is a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded-out by a modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. There is a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!

Was born in 1962 and lives in Bariloche, Patagonia, Argentina, dedicating himself to teaching, recording engineering and music. He studied at the ISEDET when he was a student at the Manuel de Falla Conservatory and Carlos Piegari with whom he intensively learned guitar. While studying Physics in Bariloche, with a scholarship from the National Atomic Energy Commission at the Balseiro Institute, he learned flute and composition with his main teacher in the art of music: JOSE LUIS TUBERT.
His musical activity is focused on expression through recordings. Like a painter on his canvas, he superimposes guitars, flutes, charangos, sikus, antaras and other instruments in his recording studio. This technique allows him to perform duets, trios, quartets, etc., with himself. A distinctive feature of his compositions is the use of sounds from nature as an active part of his music. In this way he manages to create deep climates that ignite in those who listen to them, images and feelings alien to pure music and typical of other arts, such as cinema.
In addition to his intense solo work, he has been part of various groups, standing out the duo with Jorge Shitu, the composition of songs with Marcelo Zapata and mainly with the group LA FRAGUA with which they produced the work "DE LOS ANDES A LOS BEATLES" (2 cds, 2001 and 2007). In 2013 he edited together with the group »From the Andes to Vivaldi - The four seasons", the group's third CD, recreating one of the most important works in the history of music with South American rhythms and folk instruments. So far, he has published 12 CDs and his music has been used to score TV programs in the country and abroad (Channel 13, Telefé, Discovery Channel, BBC).
