A first in cinematic sampling, Brute Flute is a Contrabass Flute library like no other. Recorded in exceptional detail and capturing a range of cinematic textures, harmonic embellishments, explosive articulations and an expressive true legato, this wonderful library features a highly unique and inspiring set of sounds. The third release in our brand new Experiments range, this library was performed by renowned flautist Gareth Mclearnon, who is known for his virtuosic performances across blockbusters such as Alien Covenant, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mary Magdalene and many more. The library was recorded on a dry scoring stage in the heart of London, using some of the best microphones to capture every nuance of Gareth's captivating performances.

Working in close collaboration with virtuoso flutist Gareth Mclearnon, we spent weeks curating a list of rare and experimental Contrabass Flute techniques to create a library like no other. Capturing a huge range of never before sampled cinematic textures, harmonic embellishments, explosive articulations and true legato, we explored brand new territory and discovered the true potential of this magnificent instrument. Usually found within an orchestral setting, in recent years the contrabass flute has been used by innovative film composers such as Johann Johannsson and Jed Kurzel to create unique and intriguing sonic worlds. The textures that we captured from the contrabass flute are unique to this instrument, and many of them can't be performed in the same way on a regular concert flute or a bass flute. Gareth brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, and is known to be one of the most in demand and exciting flutists of his generation. The flute itself was handmade by Eva Kingma, a premium quality flute maker specialising in Alto, Bass and Contrabass flutes, and was designed exclusively for Gareth. 

To capture Gareth’s performance on this magnificent instrument, we chose a dry scoring stage in the heart of London. We thought this was important as we wanted to record every nuance in intimate detail, providing clean and flexible recordings that can be used for an upfront, aggressive sound, or manipulated afterwards to create a spacious, cinematic sound. We recorded multiple microphone perspectives such as Close Mono, Close Stereo, Mid Stereo and Far Stereo, and used top quality microphones such as the Beyer M160, AKG C414, Neumann U87 and Neumann TLM103.

Kontakt Player is a free sampler created by Native Instruments, which allows you to use certain sample libraries without the need for additional paid software. Kontakt (sometimes referred to as the FULL version of Kontakt) is a sampler which can be purchased from www.nativeinstruments.com. The vast majority of our libraries only run in the FULL version of Kontakt, and therefore you must check that you have the correct version of Kontakt in order to use our sample libraries. Please check the description of each individual product page to find out which version of Kontakt you will need.
NKS brings all your software instruments, effects, loops and samples, into one intuitive workflow – creating seamless integration between NI and other leading developers. It gives you streamlined browsing, consistent tagging, instant sound previews, pre-mapped parameters, Smart Play features, and more. Please note that currently our libraries are not supported by NKS, however we will be updating certain products to be NKS compatible in the near future.
All of our Kontakt based libraries contain samples that have been converted to NCW. This has been done primarily to protect the content within the library, making it more difficult for people to use the samples outside of Kontakt. Certain libraries created by us include a WAV pack which means you can work directly with audio within your DAW.
DAW stands for Digital Audio Workstation. Softwares such as Logic Pro X, Cubase, Nuendo, Pro Tools, Ableton and Reaper are DAWs. In theory, you do not need a DAW to use one of our products, you do however need the correct version of Kontakt. However, if you plan on creating music, we recommend using a DAW to allow you to record and sequence your MIDI for easy playback.
You may use your library on more than one machine if they belong to you, however it is illegal to share, distribute or upload all or part of our libraries in any form. Please read our EULA for a full overview of the conditions.
