When it comes to solo brass, only the real thing can deliver the full expression and authentic character of the instrument. With its fatter, darker tone, in the hands of a skilled player, the Flugelhorn can bring a mellow and airy timbre full of character to almost any musical project. Flugelhorn 2 is part of the Elastik Instrument Series and features the outstanding playing of Axel Beineke. The sound and playing in Flugelhorn 2 capture the instruments character to perfection, creating a sophisticated, late-night, intimate mood.
Soulful Lead Lines
With over 1.4 GB of sample data, the nearly 700 loops and phrases are arranged into 43 performance folders. Each folder contains between 12 and 21 individual phrases that can easily be combined to create a full solo performance. The playing is soft, breezy and light and the sound is deep, breathy and hugely expressive. The original recording tempos span 60 to 90 BPM. Elastik’s powerful tempo manipulation tools allow you to easily fit the sample content into your project tempo, while the ReTune feature allow you to add further melodic variations if required or to combine phrases from different folders.
Masterful Performances Packed With Character
The sound and style is reminiscent of Jazz Flugelhorn maestro Till Brönner and these soulful lead lines would work perfectly for RnB, Soul, LoFi, Lounge and, of course, Jazz. Flugelhorn 2 complements other releases from the Instrument Series like Acoustic Bass 2, Downtempo Guitar or Tenor Saxophone. The library is a perfect choice for producers or media composers looking to add a touch of genuinely classy brass to their next downtempo, jazz-influenced, composition.
