New from Orange Tree Samples: Flute Flight

Flute Flight includes four different flutes: piccolo, concert flute, alto flute, and bass flute. By pairing detailed, high-quality sampling and innovative programming, each of these solo flutes covers a wide range of expression while including plenty of options to tailor the sound and playability of the instruments to your taste. Flute Flight is designed to give you great results playing live from a MIDI keyboard, allowing you to shape the expression of every note and phrase with the mod wheel or a breath controller.

Taking a different approach from our Passion Flute library, which focuses on the raw tone and articulations necessary for jazz and rock flute, Flute Flight is designed to achieve sweet, lyrical phrases and soaring, majestic melodies.

One of the most difficult aspects of sampling wind instruments is capturing their expressive capabilities. There are a myriad of ways to sculpt even a single note. The note attack can be accented and quickly drop to a whisper quiet sustain, or it can begin softly and swell into the note, accompanied by deep vibrato. The problem with simply increasing the number of sampled articulations is that there’s no continuity between them, and your performance ends up sounding like a series of detached articulations strung together. This deficiency is even more audible when it comes to solo instruments, a context where even subtle artifacts are more exposed and apparent.

Thanks to our proprietary phase locking process, Flute Flight gives you a level of expression unattainable with other solo flute sample libraries. This innovative technology allows you to seamlessly morph between dynamics with zero phase cancellation or unwanted chorusing. Furthermore, the legato samples have buttery smooth transitions, letting you move between notes with fluidity and agility.

Flute Flight’s samples were performed by the incredible flutist Mattan Klein and engineered by Mac Ritchey at Possum Hall Recording Studio in Massachusetts.
