Orchestral Tools: Mistral

Free jazz flutes.

By

18 November 2023

Collaborating with names such as Tom Holkenborg, Harry Gregson-Williams, and the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, Orchestral Tools is a small, independent company whose instruments are used by A-list Hollywood composers and underground Berlin up-and-comers alike. When it comes to capturing orchestral music, there aren’t many locations in the world that can compete with Teldex Studio, situated in Berlin. Boasting ideal acoustics for orchestral recordings, it is the largest independent recording facility in Germany, and with a 455-square-metre live room it is almost the same size as Abbey Road’s Studio One.

The relationship between Orchestral Tools and Teldex began in 2012 when the first installation of the Berlin Series ‘Woodwinds’ was recorded there. Since then, Teldex Studio has become the sonic home for Orchestral Tools, and has allowed it to reach new levels of orchestral sampling, delivering rich, detailed, and flexible instrument collections that will add new depth to symphonic compositions. As well as this, the studio has possibly the largest collection of vintage Neumann microphones in the world, making it the perfect space for recording orchestral collections.

Mistral is an expressive flute recorded for jazz and other styles that sit outside the confines of the regular orchestra. Get articulations for flowing melodies, staccato bursts, rips, and crescendos — plus overblown notes for style and emphasis. Emotive, unconventional, and ready to perform in all kinds of productions, Mistral is a jazz flute in the widest sense of the word.

Mistral can be accessed through the free SINEfactory library.
