Precisionsound has released Shepherd's Flute for NI Kontakt, Logic EXS24 and SoundFont

A spokesperson told us, "The source of the Shepherd's Flute sample library is an ancient type of bamboo flute from Israel, which has a mezzo soprano voice. The flute has seven holes on the top, and one hole underneath for the thumb. It has a lovely warm tone, almost like a whisper in the wind.

In addition to programs for Kontakt 2, EXS24, and SoundFont, we have created a scripted program for Native Instruments Kontakt 3 and above, which allows you to shape the sound, apply effects, enable legato transitions between notes, and trigger expressive glides.The original instrument has a diatonic major scale with some quarter-tone sharps and flats. For greater flexibility, our version is fully chromatic with a normal tuning."

The Shepherds Flute features:

  • 156 mono 24-bit WAV samples
  • Sustained and staccato playing styles
  • Flutter and glissando articulations
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 3-5 with scripted legato and GUI
  • 6 program for NI Kontakt 2
  • 6 programs for Logic EXS24
  • 5 SoundFonts

Full version of Kontakt is required, this library does not work with the free Kontakt Player.

Pricing and Availability:
$29 via download. A DVD version costs an additional $9.95. All formats are included.
