Classic Whimsy

The classic slide whistle or slide flute is a common staple of comedic and children’s music. The signature rises and falls are used musically, as well as in old-school sound design and foley to signify objects rising or falling in space. Like a tiny trombone, the player controls the pitch by adjusting the slide position, expanding and contracting the flute’s air chamber. The farther out the slide is pulled, the lower the note. We actually found a pretty nice one, with a shiny brass slide and a full proper mouthpiece. It’s very fancy and we’re quite proud of it! 

We captured a wide range of classic and improvised, non-traditional sounds, as well as fully playable steady pitched spizzicato, staccato, and long sustaining notes with optional slide functionality. We think you’ll find this library to be a stunningly realistic and truly playable collection that will finally allow you to fully realize all your deepest musical dreams and aspirations…  well, at least the ones about slide-whistles anyway.
