    Hi friends, today I wanted to explore my 2 favourite solo woodwind libraries on the market. Equipped with a pure and clean tone, as well as supreme playability, I think you'll really grow to love these libraries. Enjoy!

    I agree these are excellent libraries and I think you did a great good showing them off. The capsule engine improves them a lot since the OT video demos they made several years ago (I think particularly in the legatos). I always wish we got a piccolo and contrabassoon of similar quality, although it might be difficult to record those instruments in a small space.

    Yes, those two instruments would be a nice bonus to round off the extreme ranges. Thanks for watching!

    I'm hoping Orchestral Tools does another Completion Days sale.

    A grail for me, I so want this library (NEXT!) and am psyched to blend it with my Arks!

    Trying to figure out why I don't own these yet ... your video makes it pretty clear there's no rational reason not to.

    So refreshing to have it recorded dry, and the impulse sounds so good.

    Awesome job. Thanks for doing these reviews . How would you compare these to Fluffy Audios solo flutes ? Thanks in advance.

    I like the Fluffy flute for its versatility and variety of articulations in a solo instrument, but its sound signature is a little too clean & pristine to my ears (more airy and Mozartian) compared to the full-bodied, melancholy tones of the OT solo flute. BWW Exp B is the most "emotional" flute VI to my taste.

    Great info. Thanks. Definitely more interested in the full bodied melancholy tones :)
