CineWinds PRO

CineWinds PRO is the expansion to the next-generation orchestral CineWinds CORE library. CineWinds PRO expansion fills out the remainder of the orchestral woodwind section, and also offers an eclectic choice of ethnic, Renaissance, and period wind instruments most often used in film scoring.

What's New in the CineWinds PRO 1.2 Update?


With this update, CineWinds now works in both the full Kontakt sampler and the FREE Kontakt Player. Please note, however, that CineWinds only works with Kontakt 5.3.1 and above.


We have painstakingly implemented a multi-layered de-noising process on every sample in the entire CineWinds CORE and PRO collection. The result is a tremendous improvement on the samples in previous versions. Listen to the demos below using the new de-noised sample set. 


CineWinds PRO is comprised of entirely new orchestral woodwind sample content, and as with CineWinds CORE, it was proudly recorded at the SONY Scoring Stage and mixed by Dennis Sands. CineWinds CORE contains the standard orchestral woodwinds — piccolo, flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon. For CineWinds PRO, we went beyond the essentials to bring you exceptional instruments, such as the alto flute and contrabassoon, as well as a comprehensive selection of ethnic woodwind instruments, performed by expert William Lyons, who sampled the exact instruments he played in many film scores, including The Hobbit by director Peter Jackson.

CineWinds PRO does not require you to purchase any additional sample playback software, and is licensed to work with the Native Instrument’s free Kontakt Player.  All you need is a sequencer like Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, LIVE, or Pro Tools, and you’ll be up and running.

As with CineWinds CORE, we assembled a team of the finest musicians and crew — we found great comfort and amazing sounds at the SONY Scoring Stage, recorded and mixed by the unparalleled engineer Dennis Sands. The woodwinds in CineWinds PRO are covered with the same depth and nuance as the instruments in CineWinds CORE, and William Lyons gives us a series of ethnic woodwinds of such expressiveness and detail rarely heard in orchestral sample libraries. The PRO expansion features twice the content of the CORE library, and we hope you enjoy every bit of it.
