Virtual recorder for electronic wind instruments or keyboards

(Full version of NI Kontakt 4.1.1 or higher required. The new version 2021 requires Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.)





Jacob Jordaens, Three musicians. 17th century.The recorder is a woodwind instrument of the group known as fipple flutes. It was popular in Renaissance period through baroque era, but declined in the 18th century.

Many composers of the baroque era wrote specifically for the recorder, including Bach, Handel, Purcell, Sammartini, Scarlatti, Schütz, Telemann and Vivaldi.

The recorder was revived in the 20th century, partly in the pursuit of historically informed performance of earlymusic, but also because of its suitability as a simple instrument for teachingmusic.

Suonopuro Recorder is an electronic version of this ancient instrument, very realistic and responsive, achieved with the typical care and attention to detail of the high-end handmade instruments.

You can choose to play Suonopuro Recorder in monophonic mode (more realistic) or polyphonic mode.
It can also perform 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 recorder will do the legato and staccato, crescendo and diminuendo, piano and forte, vibrato, glissando, etc.

It can be used with any MIDI controller but it is specifically designed for two kinds of MIDI controllers: electronic wind instruments (like the Akai EWI or the YamahaWX5) and keyboards.
