DRONAR ORCHESTRAL WOODWINDS
Powered by the award-winning DRONAR Engine for Kontakt, Orchestral Woodwinds can create complex, mind-expanding atmospheres triggered by just a few keys (one to four recommended). The DRONAR Engine automatically spreads out the chord in the mid-range, adds a root bass note, a high note and then adds evolving sound effects. Eight simultaneous different sounds are then animated with LFOs, a rhythm sequencer and arpeggiators to bring them to life. The results are rich and dramatic.
Perfect for media composers and sound designers, Orchestral Woodwinds has been built around premium recordings of flute, piccolo, clarinet, oboe and bassoon performances. In the DRONAR Engine, eight separate sounds are animated by independent arpeggiators and modulations to conjure an otherworldly halo of hope with a hint of mythical birds and forest green.

A HAND FREE FOR EXPRESSION
This sonic complexity from one hand frees up the other to expressively control dials with mouse drags or external MIDI controller knobs, and record the changes as a performance in your DAW. Subtle dial movements give deep expression, ideal for soundtracks as well as highly expressive pads, patterns and atmospheres in any genre.
A COMPLETE ATMOSPHERE
Because Gothic Instruments DRONAR Orchestral Woodwinds instantly adds low, mid-range and high sounds plus sound effects, you barely need other non-Dronar sounds to create a complete piece of atmospheric, expressive music quickly.
BEGINNER AND EXPERT FRIENDLY
Needing only to play a few notes and move a few dials to get such rich expression is inviting for beginners, but an expert will get further by knowing what notes to play and how to express emotions using the dials. Beyond the shimmering immediacy of the ‘Main Page’ awaits a whole other world of expert control, turning Gothic Instruments DRONAR Orchestral Woodwinds into a large modular multi-timbral synth/sampler with multiple independent arpeggiators.
Minimum requirements (Dronar will run, but not many instances and freezing will be needed
to run alongside other resource-hungry plugins):
- 4 cores, i5
- 4GB RAM
- Windows 7-10 or OS X 10.11 and above
- Kontakt 5.8 or higher
- Avoid directly hosting in Logic Pro X with a pre-2014 or less powerful Mac. Logic Pro X forces Dronar to run on one core which can lead to CPU spikes on less powerful or older Macs including Mac Pros, so a different DAW or external host such as VE PRO is recommended if you have an older Mac.
Recommended system (Dronar should run smoothly) :
- At least 4 cores, i7
- At least 16 GB RAM
- Windows 7-10 or OS X 10.11 and above • Kontakt 5.8 or later
- Installed on an SSD drive
- Computer from 2014 or newer
- At least 256 samples audio buffer
