Gothic Instruments release DRONAR World Flutes module

New instrument promises "otherworldly yet human atmospheres"

Press Release: Gothic Instruments has announced the release of the tenth module in their award-winning series of atmosphere creation tools – DRONAR World Flutes.

Combining rich organic Chinese dizi, Irish whistle, ocarina and pan pipes textures with DRONAR’s deep, expressive and innovative atmospheric sound creation tools, it takes just a few clicks to craft otherworldly yet deeply human atmospheres, evolving rhythmic textures, pulsating pads and more to whisk your listeners on a journey ranging from fear and suspense to uplifting optimism.

With preset categories ranging from Horror, Fear and Dark to Dreamlike, Inspirational and more, DRONAR World Flutes is an essential, flexible resource for composers of movie, tv and video game soundtracks, as well as ambient music producers.

The instruments in DRONAR World Flutes were recorded by musician William Arnold who creates evocative, emotional, and expressive leads and background textures for TV and film using his voice and a variety of flutes from across the globe.

Of the recordings, William says, "These flute samples have an organic, earthy tone, with various combinations of overtones depending on the instrument. I like to think that flute playing is very connected to human breath and in that way are very much like singing. One can imagine drones created from these flute samples having a very human feeling to them that is unlike sounds created using synthesis alone.

I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of playing my beloved flutes in various creative ways. I hope these sounds, when combined with the amazing capabilities of theDronar engine, will inspire composers to embark on many a new sonic journey!"
