The story

This library is all about clear recordings of the Clarinet, not too long ago my brother came to Costa Rica after a two-year internship in china and brought a clarinet, to fossilize these past months with him I decided to sample his clarinet.

This library focuses on clear recordings, it contains three patches which are:

01. Legato.
02. Longs.
03. Experimental.

All these patches have been recorded with the legendary SM57 that I recently purchased for this occasion, I hope you can get the most of these patches and I would love to hear what you come up with.

  • Clearly a favourite

    I loved EVERYTHING about this one. Ruben has created an astonishing clarinet instrument that I guarantee you will absolutely love. It features a little more than 2 octaves of playable range, it plays amazingly well, and the sound is simply extraordinaire. I feel that a vibrato slider would top it off, just to give it that extra goosebump ingredient, but then it'd might as well be a premium instrument. Either way, this is an instant favourite that belongs in the top of Pianobook.

  • Perfect eeire clarinet sound

    This is a really interestingly made instrument. I loved the little detuned effect you can hear in the legato. Gives you some suspense intimate horror type vibes. Definitely does stand out to me as said by the developer

  • Dreamy Clarinet

    The Clarinet is my favorite wind instrument, so I was really looking forward to check out this library. I really love the tone of this instrument, it's very dreamy and moody. I was surprised that there is even an Legato patch available and I think it is really playable. Ruben has done a great job sampling this. The Longs patch is very nice too, I just would have liked to be able to add some expression with the mod wheel. I especially love the beautiful and melancholic textures you get from the Experimental patch. Highly recommended!

  • Does justice to its name

    This clarinet definitely stands out, it is well sampled and feels pretty authentic! Ruben did an amazing job once again. The GUI is easy to understand, but also very fitting with the instrument. And with the ADSR controls, you can get a lot of mileage out of this awesome clarinet.

  • A nice set of clarinet patches

    I have to admit I initially missed this among the other recent clarinet libraries ('Clarinetbook' April 2023?), but I'm glad to have been brought back! There are 3 patches - legato (using SIPS), long/poly and an 'experimental' patch. Ruben has once again shown exquisite taste in tweaking the effects on this final patch to achieve an amazing sound 'out of the box'.

    There are some minor intonation issues on a few of the samples, mostly noticeable when using the dry poly ('longs') patch or in certain combinations with the detuning/portamento effect of the SIPS legato. This could be an attractive feature for some users though, especially to give more of an eerie feeling in combination with the experimental patch. Aside from this though the samples sound great, and have been both played and recorded to high standard.

    Overall a nice library that has definitely achieved its stated aim of 'clear recordings'!
