We traveled all the way to Glasgow, Scotland to record the latest creation in our series of contemporary ensembles—the Warm Studio Woodwinds: Solo Bass Clarinet. The sessions gave us over 160 hours of recorded material and countless more in post-production. We captured each player in this series at Gorbals Sounds, a legendary studio that’s hosted such artists as Labrinth, CHVRCHES, and The Temper Trap.
Derived from our Intimate Studio Woodwinds series, The Solo Bass Clarinet has everything you’ll need to create pure woodwind melodies. Choose from a vast collection of 26 articulations—whether it’s traditional ones such as Staccato, Staccatissimo, Sustains, Trills, and Legato or more nuanced techniques such as Measured Tremolo, Triplets, and Tuplets. The Legato articulation itself is wildly lyrical and emotive. Make sure to check out the Arcs and Effects, too—it contains dynamically layered arcs and runs, scoops, and flutter tonguing.
You’ll also be able to control individual volume, panning, and output routing from our advanced interface. The new distance control freely blends a direct signal and a more spacious and ambient microphone position. Note that each player in this series was recorded simultaneously, meaning that no matter your combination of instruments, the Solo Bass Clarinet will fit with any ensemble and sing beautifully. We hope you enjoy our latest continuation of the completely modular ensemble!
