2007-04-02 - Flutes Module Now Available From Westgate Studios

North Richland Hills, Texas - November, 27 2006

As part of our all-new Modular Series, Westgate Studios is proud to announce the release of The Flutes Module. This library for Gigastudio 3.1 and Kontakt 2.1 features 24 bit samples recorded using the same methods as the previous Oboes Module. On the DVD you will find a comprehensive set of patches for Solo Piccolo, Solo Flute, Solo Alto Flute and Flute Section. If you are looking to breath new life and stunning realism into your music, then this is the library for you.

The most important feature of this library is the Legato playing style. These patches contain not only expressive long notes, but also true legato interval samples that were recorded as the musicians played every note up and down from 1 half-step all the way up to a full octave. And the good news is that you don't have to load any special tools to control them because the Legato effect is powered by Gigastudio's imidi rules and Kontakt's scripting engine. But it doesn't end there. Within this same instrument you can vary the Attack Strength of each note, control the use of Release Samples, and play Same-Note Legato Repetitions in any rhythm or tempo. With any other library you'd find your midi channels and tracks quickly filling up, but our focus was to pack as many features into each instrument while still keeping them easy to use.

Along with these highlights you'll also find everything you've come to expect from today's modern woodwind libraries: Staccato and Marcato articulations, Flutter-tongue, Trills, Runs, Stabs and changing dynamics such as Crescendo, Diminuendo, and Fortepiano. We've gone the extra step to make this a complete solution by including Overblown Staccatos for that signature "Jazz Flute" sound.

Whether you are a power user or a hobbyist, the feature list and price of this module are enough to make any serious musician want to add these exquisite sounding instruments to their arsenal. We have only scratched the surface here. For a complete feature list and audio demos, head over to www.westgatestudios.com.

With an MSRP of only $120 (US), the Flutes Module is available on DVD for either Gigastudio 3.1 or Kontakt 2.1. The samples included are 24bit/44.1k/stereo recordings of Solo Piccolo, Solo Flute, Solo Alto Flute and Flute Section. This library is Available Now at westgatestudios.com.
