Soundiron tells us that Ancient Greek Winds is a collection of 9 carefully-sampled traditional Greek woodwind instruments capturing the essence of the classical Hellenistic period. This collection includes single and double-reeded aulos flutes from bass to alto, as well as conch shell horns, brass salpinx horn, pan flute and plagiaulos. They say that it's the perfect melodic compliment to their Ancient Greek Strings and Ancient Greek Percussion collections.
Here's more details direct from Soundiron...
Every instrument was recorded in precise detail by producer John Valasis, with round-robin variations and multiple dynamics and voicings. You'll enjoy our flexible GUI features and a wide selection of chromatic and special effect articulations. The interface provides complete performance controls, including true legato response control, simulated portamento bending, arpeggiator, flexible step-sequencable filter and LFO systems and a modular DSP FX rack to shape your sound however you wish. We've also created 20 unique sound-designed ambiences directly from the raw acoustic source recordings to give you added texture and even more creative potential. Ancient Greek Winds includes 3,517 24-bit 48kHz stereo samples and weighs in at just over 4 GB.
