Presenting our new Kontakt Library, Book Series Chalumeau, with True Legato articulation and a unique warm and folk tone.
“The chalumeau is a single-reed woodwind instrument of the late baroque and early classical eras. The chalumeau is a folk instrument that is the predecessor to the modern-day clarinet.”
The instrument used was handmade by the great artisan and flute maker Max Brumberg with Cherry Tree Wood. We sampled Vibrato and Non-Vibrato Legato, Staccato and more than 50 phrases.
Please note: FULL retail version of Kontakt 6.6.1 or later is required. NOT for Kontakt Player.
The BOOK Series is a new series of rare instruments, with unique textures, directly from the world and manufacturers.
The BOOK Series comes with a smart user interface, designed to have great control over the sound. The engine also features 18 Creative Layers, made with organic elements and analog synths, and +20 Space IR, a chorus, a compressor, a filter and a delay.
Book Series Chalumeau was recorded at Rocchi Studios in Rome with top end microphones, in collaboration with the Saint Louis College of Music.
This library comes with two microphone positions: Close and Room.
The library also provides all the fine-sampling techniques, like round robins, a dynamic modwheel and vertical layering.
