Orchestral Tools announces Whisper: Gentle Wind Instruments


Berlin, Germany, September 28, 2021 – Leading designers of sample libraries Orchestral Tools announced Whisper, the latest in their evolving series of creative soundpacks. Whisper provides music creators with an inspiring palette of wind instruments designed for the ethereal, perfect for creating evocative atmospheric soundscapes for sheet music, sound design and music production. Whisper is available now for an introductory price of € 89 until October 5 on the Orchestral Tools site. For more information or to purchase, please click here.

“We designed Whisper to produce a rich sonic palette of delicate, breathable textures,” said Hendrik Shwarzer, Founder and CEO of Orchestral Tools. “From whispering winds and drifting melodies to rippling atmospheric soundscapes, it’s the perfect addition to any sound designer or songwriter’s toolbox.”

Whisper consists of four softly played wind instruments – flute, muted cornet, bugle and bass clarinet – as well as a rich set of intricately elaborated pads, clamps and keys. With super smooth legato and a choice of short, expressive, or long swells, these sounds possess a delicate and intimate character that spans from tonal to textural, providing composers and sound designers with a library of evocative organic sounds. All four instruments have been designed with the same attention to detail as the flagship orchestras in the Berlin series from Orchestra Tools and come with a wide range of articulations and three mic positions per instrument, allowing for total control and flexibility.

In addition to individual use, the four instruments can also be played in groups to create unique ensemble sounds; from subtle sound design touches to rippling soundscapes with drifting melodies and atmospheric harmonies. All instrumentation uses Orchestral Tools’ SINEplayer for flexible and intuitive DAW integration.
