Virtual Pan Pipes

(Full version of NI Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher required. Tested with Kontakt 7)





Master of the Pan flute Gheorghe Zamfir

The Super Pan Flute by Suonopuro is a virtual instrument for NI Kontakt, emulating an ancient flute consisting of multiple pipes of gradually increasing length.

The pan flute is named after Pan, the Greek god of nature often depicted with such an instrument. In Greek mythology, Syrinx was a forest nymph. In her attempt to escape the affection of god Pan (a creature half goat and half man), she was transformed into a water-reed. Then, Pan cut several reeds, placed them in parallel one next to the other, and bound them together to make a melodic musical instrument. Ancient Greeks called this instrument Syrinx, in honour of the Muse, and Pan-pipes or Pan-flute, after Pan.

The Super Pan Flute is the evolution of the previous Suonopuro Pan-Flute. The new algorithm, with a new interface, takes full advantage of the sampled sounds of the previous library, allowing you to obtain a more realistic instrument that can be played more fluidly, expressively and intuitively.
The Super Pan Flute simulates all the expressive possibilities of the instrument: staccato, legato, glissando, crescendo, diminuendo, accentato, bending, etc. It also has a wide dynamic and tonal range, adjustable and controllable in many ways, and an incredible five and a half octave range. The crescendo and diminuendo are very natural, without earing overlapping notes.

The Super Pan Flute also has a wide range of effects, which transform the flute sound into something more modern: brilliance effect, chorus, distortion, adjustable breath noise, automatic vibrato, flutter, stereophonic effect, and more.

The Super Pan-Flute is designed to get the best, in terms of expression and control, from any kind of MIDI instrument or DAW:
 • Electronic Wind Instruments (Akai EWI, Roland Aerophone, Yamaha YDS, Berglund NuEVI, etc.);
 • MIDI strings (Cantini MIDI violin, Zeta MIDI violin, etc.);
 • MIDI converters, like the Sonuus i2M;
 • MIDI keyboards (NI Komplete control, M-Audio Oxygen, etc.);
 • MIDI controllers (TEC breath controller, MIDI expression pedal, Yamaha BC3, etc.).

A new, modern and complex algorithm for maximum realism and the best playability. UPGRADE 2023!
24bit/48kHz stereo sampling.
The Perfect Crossfade: transition from piano to forte and vice versa on 2 levels, without earing double notes.
Selectable dynamics controller and editable dynamic range.
Two monophonic modes with real time automatic recognizing of legato and staccato: by dynamic controller and by keys.

Configurable legato mode and real time controlled glissando.
• Playing staccato, each new note is slightly different from the previous one, with multiple and gradual gradients from soft to marcato.
Two parallel voices at configurable intervals, as used by Michael Brecker.
Polyphonic mode for polyphonic instruments and sustain or hold 1st note modes for monophonic instruments.
Bending technique, which consists in starting a note with an ascending glissando, live controllable in duration.
• Release of notes with a descending (Fall) glissando that can be controlled in duration.
Automatic vibrato and flutter-tonguing both configurable and controllable live.
• Easy to use Chorus, Compressor, Stereo, Three-band equalizer, Convolution reverb, Distortion and Delay effects.
• Adjustable and live controllable breath noise.
• A Brilliance effect, which boosts or cuts high frequencies dynamically.
Keyswitches that can be disabled and a live options activator to instantly switch from one configuration to another.

• A COMPUTER: Windows or Mac or a Maschine+ by Native Instruments.

A MIDI CONTROLLER: an Electronic Wind Instrument or a Keyboard or any kind of MIDI Instrument.

Dynamic controllers for keyboards  

You can control the Super Pan-Flute's dynamics in many ways: with any MIDI controller, with the velocity or with the aftertouch.

Here are some examples:
