I love the sampled instrument industry. There’s so much vigorous competition, development of new techniques and technologies is happening all the time–it seems like “revolutionary” and “game-changing” new libraries come out every year. Well, there’s a new sample developer on the block: Embertone, the brainchild of composers Alex Davis and Jonathan Churchill. This last week I wrote up a couple instrument demos for some of their new instruments: “Jubal flute”, a simple reed flute, and “Ivory Wind”, a tenor recorder. Check it out!
Their instruments are very playable and incredibly low-priced. I’m very curious to see what comes out of this brand in the future, as I’ll probably be picking a lot of it up to use in my music.
