Embertone Intros Expressive Popelka Bassoon Virtual Instrument

Embertone has launched another new virtual instrument, Popelka Bassoon, that lets you create expressive bassoon performances.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

If you’re looking for the filet mignon of bassoons, this one isn’t for you. Popelka Bassoon is a raw + organic quinoa stew with no artificial flavoring. In other words, we recorded Julie’s natural, intimate tone! Then we let it marinate for a handful of years in our high-security Ember-Vault(tm), and finally, added our signature stamp on it (aka blood sweat and tears) to bring you this lovely, quirky, and very expressive library.

Sampled in the same vein as Chapman Trumpet, but loaded with all the advanced features and improvements that you’ve come to expect from an Embertone release, Popelka Bassoon is sure to dance its way from the forest and into the warm protection of your composing arsenal. It’s one of our most endearing instruments to date.
