The Claire Woodwind Series is a deep-sampled collection of the finest virtuoso woodwind soloists ever sampled. These are highly playable instruments soared with true emotion, effortless and equilibristic behavior. Our Bassoon Virtuoso is the most expressive, playable, and lifelike Bassoon ever sampled. The Bassoon Virtuoso was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Far). The core of the Bassoon is its highly advanced legato system, which contains both slow and fast legato. The legato system allows you to play legato with passionate arcs, sustains, staccatissimo, expressive marcato, and more. We recorded arcs with both non-vibrato, medium and strong vibrato, so you can freely sculpt your performance from the subtle to vibrant. In addition, we also added trills, runs, staccatissimo and even non-tonal effects like breaths, valve sounds, and natural click noises.

The Claire Bassoon Virtuoso contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Wide). Everything was sampled at 96Khz, providing unprecedented detail in the sound and revealing details that would otherwise have been lost at lower resolutions. You can hear the warmth of the instrument, reflections of the room, the air and all the tiny, little details so often missed.
The Claire Bassoon Virtuoso is based on a highly intuitive, playable and expressive legato system. We sampled a variety of different types of expressive sustains and arcs that are all connected to the legato system, so you can go between sustain types that are gentle (p-mp) to strong (f-ff) or sustain types with less or more vibrato.
