Following the release of the ABBEY ROAD ONE: SPARKLING WOODWINDS and ABBEY ROAD ONE: LEGENDARY LOW STRINGS sample libraries, we today continue our ABBEY ROAD ONE: FILM SCORING SELECTION series with ABBEY ROAD ONE: WONDROUS FLUTES.

ABBEY ROAD ONE: WONDROUS FLUTES combines a wonderfully-recorded pairing of woodwind, with a piccolo sounding an octave higher than the flutes to double the same part, producing a common, classic sound suited to all genres. Its influences can be heard from the likes of John Williams’ widely-known Star Wars themes.
 
 
Spitfire Audio co-founder and composer Paul Thomson explains, “Each of these selections is designed to do a particular job incredibly well, and we’ve come up with new techniques for sampling, and for recording the different types of elements that we need to get the performance to be absolutely brilliant,” before diving deeper: “What you’re hearing here is two flutes and a piccolo an octave above them — a common pairing in the orchestral repertoire. It pretty much matches up the range of the piccolo with the range of the flute, so you’re getting a very close-matched timbre between the two instruments. You’ve got the body and fatness of the two flutes, and then you've got the kind of extra sparkly, slightly more piercing sound of the piccolo playing the same note but an octave up, which is very useful.”
