EXPRESSIVE WOODWIND

A 36-piece woodwind section and top soloists, recorded within the unique acoustic environment of Montclair Presbyterian Church, Oakland. The portfolio unites classic woodwind instruments with contemporary saxophone, offering vivid dynamic recordings for traditional and modern scoring.

VIVID DYNAMIC RECORDINGS

With recorded arpeggios, true legato, and up to 462 total articulations, WOODWIND provides a formidable suite of instruments. ENSEMBLE and SOLO sections are provided as distinct KONTAKT libraries, allowing detailed and realistic mixing of both grouped sections and soloists.

Both ENSEMBLE and SOLO libraries are provided in full SYMPHONY SERIES version or streamlined SYMPHONY ESSENTIALS version.

EXCLUSIVE FEATURES

WOODWIND offers powerful features, exclusive to the WOODWIND family of scoring tools.

ARPEGGIO MODULE

In addition to the included recorded arpeggios, the Arpeggio Module allows you to instantly generate arpeggiated phrases and sustained note runs, trills, and chords. It's all playable in real time, and you can restrict arpeggios to scales and patterns.

EXPRESSION RELEASE SYSTEM

Whenever you release a key, the Expression Release system creates a natural sounding decay. This works even if the played articulation features recorded dynamic changes, as found in crescendo or swells.

AVAILABLE IN TWO VERSIONS

Both SYMPHONY SERIES and SYMPHONY ESSENTIALS versions are built from the same recordings and have the same intuitive interface. The full-featured SERIES version offers exhaustive depth and nuance, while the ESSENTIALS version provides the same quality in a lightweight package.
