The flugelhorn (Flugelhorn) in Bb, together with the euphonium and the (double) bass tuba, belongs to the group of so-called bow or sax horns, even if the instrument looks more like the trumpet. The flugelhorn owes its name to the "wing master", who with his signals in the 18th century. had to coordinate the various wings of the hunting party.
In addition to military and brass bands, the flugelhorn is mainly found in the jazz area as a popular solo instrument, which, similar to the trumpet, is very flexible, but has a much softer and wider sound due to its conical, wide scale.
The standard library of the download instrument contains all Flugelhorn samples from the Vienna Special Edition Vol. 4 as well as some additional articulations. A detailed list of the available playing styles can be found under the menu item Sample Content.

Vienna Instruments and software require a ViennaKey !
The USB dongle from eLicenser (Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in the Vienna Instruments, but must be purchased separately. So you have to order at least one ViennaKey together with your first collection. It is automatically placed in the basket with the first instrument, but can be deleted again if you do not need it. Each ViennaKey can store up to 100 product licenses.
You also need an internet connection on any computer to authorize a ViennaKey.
