Crocus Soundware released Liminal: Winds, a library of closely recorded hand-crafted flutes – from a minuscule fife to a gargantuan Contra-Bass constructed out of 12 feet of industrial tubing. LIMINAL: Winds is playable using the FREE Halion Sonic SE plugin. The library’s articulations are expressive and evolving, with the performer imparting character and movement into each sample. The flutes were miked in proximity to the embouchure hole, providing characteristic breath and intimacy into each sample. The library is well-suited to add unpredictability and creative imperfection. The LIMINAL range is not intended for fast passages or soaring melodies. Instead, you may see the libraries as collections of naturalistic pads – offering orchestral details not found in something derived from a synthetic source. They are wonderful for underscoring or ethereal soundscapes.
The user-interface allows articulations to be layered, mixed and reversed. LFO controls can be enabled, allowing your DAW’s tempo to dictate the modulation of an individual layer’s volume. This opens the door for tempo-synced swells and unleashes even more creative possibilities for evolving texture.
