Whistle Hole

Rustic Tin Whistle Humming

Product Overview

The idea of this sound appealed to me for the first time when recording an experimental soundtrack for a short film - "The Journey" (soundtrack nominated to the "Best Soundtrack Album 2013" awards by Screen Australia/APRA - but better luck next time...)

Basically humming/singing into the tin whistle while playing it. Chaotic interference of air and sound waves is always bringing fresh results - no two takes are identical! This library captures that sonic experience: fragile, imperfect yet persistently sustained sound! Haunting yet border-lining with comical. Industrial yet spiritual. Ugly yet beautiful.

Left hand: Tin whistle in 'c' "hummed into" an octave below

Right hand: Another tin whistle in 'c' plus unison humming

The instrument consists of two patches:

  • Polyphonic
  • Legato utilising SIPS Legato Script Happy blowing/humming!

Developed in Kontakt 5.4.3 so you'll need this version or above to use this library.

Library will only load in 'demo' mode in the free Kontakt Player.

PS: If you are not afraid of experimental, independent cinematography and kinds of music it attracts, you can still purchase "The Journey" soundtrack on ;)
