Register, Contents and Installation Instructions

 

   Congratulations on and thanks for buying “The Essence of Panflute”.

 

          We hope that this disc meets the expectations of the thousands of Pan Flute fans, as well as those of the potential users of this instrument, for various projects. Over time, I noticed that the studio musicians lack the Pan Flute resonances. They are present, of course, on many sound modules, on various sound volumes etc., but there is no individual disc to put this instrument forward, and to render genuine Pan Flute sounds for the listener. Thus, we had the idea to record this disc, meant to include both the most representative sound bases, and phrase bases for this fascinating, but extremely demanding instrument.

  It could be stated that the selection of this disc – when the Pan Flute is needed – might as well be a definitive one, given that it was created at the highest quality standards, without any compromises, and thus it meets the most exigent needs, requirements and – why not? – the most demanding expectations.

             This is a product made by musicians for musicians.

 

                                                                                                         

This collection has meant long working hours, but they are sure worth it.

Your satisfaction is most important to us.
