Gabrielle Flute library for Kontakt

Gabrielle Flute is a true legato flute library performed by Gabrielle Davis. 

Recorded at Orb Studios in Austin, TX – our goal was to create a series of flute patches that could address a wide range of orchestral contexts while prioritizing responsive playability. Like all of our solo instrument releases, no keyswitches are required – just play in what you want and use the modwheel (or CC# of your choice) for dynamics. 

The ‘Workhorse’ patch is exactly that – a solid all-rounder that will likely suit the majority of your energetic flute-writing needs. ‘Emotional’ was performed mezzo piano – great for softer contexts. For the ‘Fat Lead’ patch, we asked Gabrielle to play with as much gusto and power as she could – resulting in an instrument that soars in the upper register with attacks that properly bite. 

Like with our Barker Clarinet release, we recorded a series of short and long inhales with both the player and flute in position. Great patch to help sell the performance in between phrases.

What Is The Altelier Series?

Oftentimes during the research and experimental phase of development, Musical Sampling creates instruments that don’t necessarily belong to a bigger, themed release. Instead of attempting to shoehorn them into a future release or trying to construct a comprehensive product around it, they decided to create the Atelier Series so that other composers can enjoy their explorations in sample development as well.
