    Howdy all,

    Does anyone have some woodwind samples they would like to share? Or know of any good woodwind samples?

    I fancy getting some flutes or something in a track soon, not sure exactly what I want to do but thought a good start would be finding the sounds!

    could try searching youtube for 'flute solo' or something

    if you are looking to sample a flute and use it in a sampler, i wuldnt bother, sampled woodwinds are generally shyte, even if u pay a fair bit for professionally made versions

    Cheers for the swift reply miszt!

    Thats a shame about using it in sampler would be rubbish... I was a little worried that may be the case!

    So, you suggest finding a loop or solo or something and working with it? :)

    Best flute or panpipe sounds I've found so far are actually some presets in Rob Papen's Predator!

    Predator does have a demo! But I'm not sure working in 30 minute blocks will be good fun for me... :lol:

    Thanks for the input, elmaruk! Don't know if you get Computer Music Mag? Alchemy is on The CM Studio am I right? :p

    yeah i'm pretty sure CM put a demo out at some point.

    you might have to play with some of the oscillators to get the sound you want. Some of the pre-set flutes have rain and frog noises backing them up. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

    I used there flutes in this tune.

    Thanks for all the replies guys :D

    As for the tune, yeah, nice one man :) Like it, how is depth records going? We going to be hearing some new releases soon? :) I have been working on some deepish stuff that may be to your liking, the production quality isn't up with the rest of you all though ! :lol:

    Okey doke :)

    To sum up this topic for anyone else looking for woodwind.

    As miszt pointed out whacking flute sounds in a sampler won't create great results. I can't confirm this as I have never tried it! His suggestion was to search around online (youtube) , which I did and actually found some awesome flute players. I found some cool stuff that I may actually whack in a tune!

    Predator has some good presets.

    Alchemy player was pretty bang on for what I wanted, but these sounds are a little atmospheric like, if you are looking for something a little more , flutey? :lol: , then it may not be ideal!

    Cheers.

    you can just strip it of the effects on the pre-set or find out what wave form they used for the flue n go from there.

    ^

    Or be clever like elmaruk and do that! :lol:

    Sending an email soon by the way mate :)

    Had a look at the different options for the presets. It's possible to get some more real sounds from alchemy too. Dials to control volume of rain sounds, FX and all that. Good plugin, recommend! Should have got it before really!

    yeah man it's good'n. you can get your own sounds in there and get real creative with your basslines then.
