Virtual Pan Flute for Electronic Wind Instruments or Keyboards

(Full version of NI Kontakt 4.1.1 or higher required)





Master of the Pan flute Gheorghe ZamfirSuonopuro Pan Flute is a sample-based instrument for NI Kontakt, emulating an ancient flute consisting of multiple pipes of gradually increasing length, also called Syrinx. The pan flute is named after Pan, the Greek god of nature often depicted with such an instrument. He is the God of shepherds.
Suonopuro Pan Flute uses complex algorithms to emulate all the expressive possibilities of this instrument: staccato, legato, glissando, crescendo, diminuendo, etc. The result is a realism and playability of the highest level.
Like its more complex cousins of Ancient Flutes Collection it has many functions, including two configurable parallel voices as used by great EWI player Michael Brecker.
It does not require complex configurations or problematic ways of playing: you just play your MIDI instrument and the virtual flute will do the legato and staccato, crescendo and diminuendo, piano and forte, vibrato, portamento, etc.
You can also crossfading from pp to ff and conversely without hearing 2 notes anytime.
It works with any MIDI controller but it is specifically designed for two kinds of MIDI controllers: electronic wind instruments (like the Akai EWI or the Yamaha WX5) and keyboards.
