Soundiron has introduced Los Andes Pan Flutes – a new pan flute virtual instrument for Kontakt.

Los Andes Pan Flutes features four traditional Argentinian pan flutes, exploring a broad key range and variety of chromatic articulations, expressive effects and phrases.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“We teamed up with Argentinian Pan Flute master and Antara Records founder Alejandro Fatur to bring you this outstanding collection of four traditional Argentinian pan flutes, exploring a broad key range and variety of chromatic articulations, expressive effects and phrases.

The Toyo covers the bass range, at well over a meter in length with rich sub-harmonics and a fat, breathy tone. The Zanca and Malta span the lower and upper mid-range. Finally, the Ch’ulli reaches into the soprano range.

You can play the entire range as a combined instrument or choose individual flutes. The sustains and 3 staccato speeds offer your choice of clean non-vibrato, vibrato and whispering flautando styles, in both piano and forte dynamics. The crescendo and decrescendo expressions and special flute effects add plenty of spice to the mix. All chromatic articulations feature round robin. The level of depth and detail lets you craft lush, natural pan flute arrangements, while our advanced sound-shaping and performance features give you the freedom to explore.

To capture the feel of a live pan flute in the hands of an expert, Alejandro also recorded thousands of beautiful melodic phrases for each of the pan flutes, performing a total of well over 10,000 distinct melodic elements. The phrases are organized by flute, tempo, musical key and performance style. You can trigger them individually with your keyboard or sequence them in the phrase sequencer, with full control over tempo, offset, release, pitch and more.”
