DEMOS

 

Bass Clarinet Jazz Solo

A Jazz solo live performance, showing the real-time capabilities of the Bass Clarinet, ranging from Growl/Multiphonics to Tonguings and Falls. This video underlines the ultra smooth and realistic sound-shaping & transitions between the different dynamics & techniques.

 

Classical Clarinet Solo

This is a live performance with Classical Clarinet, aiming to show the real-time expression and dynamics without any phasing or doubling artifacts.

 

Ethnic Clarinet

First demo of our "T.C.C." Library, featuring the instrument "A Traditional Klarino". Having a really unique timbre, this instrument sounds really different from what everyone is used to know for a "typical clarinet tone", yet, for the fans of Ethnic, Folk and Oriental music this sounds pleasantly familiar.
