Claire Alto Flute Virtuoso overview

Welcome to our Claire Virtuoso Woodwind series, produced by Emmy Nominated Composer, Colin O’Malley. The Claire Woodwind Series is a deep-sampled collection of the finest virtuoso woodwind soloists ever sampled. These are highly playable instruments soared with genuine emotion, effortless and equilibristic behavior.

Our Alto Flute Virtuoso is the most expressive, playable and lifelike Alto-Flute ever sampled. The Alto Flute Virtuoso VST was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Wide). The core of the instrument is its highly advanced legato system, which includes both lyrical and strong legato. The legato system allows you to play legato with passionate arcs and sustains. We recorded arcs with both light, medium, and strong vibrato, so you can freely sculpt your performance from the subtle to vibrant. Also, we also added trills, runs, staccatissimo, marcato and even non-tonal effects like breaths, valve sounds, and natural click noises, etc.

Advanced Legato

Claire Alto-Flute Virtuoso is based on a highly intuitive, playable and expressive legato system. We sampled a variety of different types of dramatic arcs that are all connected to the legato system, so you can go between sustains that are gentle (p-mp), to strong (f-ff) or sustain types with less or more vibrato. All these articulations can seamlessly be connected while you are playing using our highly advanced legato system.

Claire Alto Flute Virtuoso contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Wide) and everything was sampled at 96Khz, which provides an unprecedented detail in the sound and reveal details that would otherwise have been lost at lower resolutions. The fidelity of the library is especially revealing once you start combining the microphones and hear the warmth of the instrument, reflections of the room, the air and all the tiny, little details so often missed.
