Dusty Flugelhorn was sampled to capture the warm mellow tone of the flugelhorn, an instrument I am incredibly fond of due its depth and character of sound.
This instrument features one dynamic layer with control over the reverb and delay, with each note individually sampled. Dusty Flugelhorn is available as a Kontakt instrument (version 6.3.1 or later), but can be easily dropped into your sampler of choice.

Use it to add texture to beautiful orchestral passages or as a standalone motif in something more contemporary, the choice is yours!

Fils a gap very well in my brass instruments colleciton
I have lots of brass instruments, but no Flugelhorn, so this fills a gap in my brass collection. Reverb and Delay controls are nice to have - really provides some inspirational ambience when I'm working on a new song.
A true gem
Usable brass solo instruments are hard to find. This is not only free, but it sounds superb. Playing this library I will have to say that the Flugelhorn is a vastly underrated instrument. I actually like the timbre of the Flugelhorn more than the trumpet and trombone.
Combine this library with other brass solo instruments, like the 1956 Tenor Horn that can also be found on Pianobook and create your own small brass ensemble in the box.
Hopefully we will see a version 2.0 with additional articulations. A lot could be achieved with an additional staccato type short articulation at hand.
A good old Flugelhorn
This is very simple and very well sampled instrument. There is not much going on though. It's not that dynamic, and the heavy attack - along with the lack of control on it - may seem less realistic if you compare it to a classics, but that doesn't mean it is bad. It's awesome and trully unique on its own ways, so I encourage you to try it yourself and see if it matches what you are looking for.
Warm and nice textured fulgelhorn
Very warm and nice sound. Some key has a little rough attack, but it also makes this instrument tasty.
A Horn of Plenty.
This is a really good library, that could so nearly be incredible. Firstly, there's plenty to like here. The sound quality is great, and its full of character. However the library only really functions well for chords... which I guess is the intention. But play in some close clusters and this thing sings! I know Pianobook libraries aren't about creating 20 RR's and dynamic layers. However with a library such as this, I think a bit more time spent on the programming would actually take it to a whole other level. My recommendation would be to add in two round robins which given its 2 1/2 octave range shouldn't take too long to record. I'd also consider making the sample endings loop so that you can create infinite sustain which would work amazingly with the cluster type chords I mentioned before. Great work Chris!
