    Good lyrical oboe?

    Hi,

    I\'ve spent the last week playing with that Maestro Clarinet and was wondering if anyone knew of a nice french oboe that would compliment it.

    It would need to be able to stand on its own, and work dry and unaffected.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated,

    Actually looking for a french OBOE, not a french horn. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    You know, as opposed to a Vienese Oboe. Thanks anyway... I guess. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    ...Oh and a good flugelhorn as well if anyone happens to know of a good one! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Miroslav Vitous still has my favourite oboe - sounds really lyrical, though technically it\'s a bit outdated now - no velocity layers, crossfades, chromatic sampling.

    The EWQLSO Gold oboe seems to sound great, too, especially if you tweak the attack time a bit. Unfortunately, there are no crossfades for solo instruments in Gold either - I hope that they will be included in the update. I think that crossfading samples are crucial for simulating a realistic woodwinds performance.

    Best, Oliver

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Yeah this was said some time ago. So it still stands out?

    If it doesn\'t have any chromatic sampling what are the intervals?

    Do you have a demo of it preferably in an exposed context?

    Thanks,

    The QLSO oboe is very good. It has some lirical articulation designed to play very expresively. The Gold and Platinum version doesn´t have much difference in articulation I think , only some falls , gliss and grace notes!!!

    Ben,

    I don\'t know if it is French but the EWQLSO oboe (24 bit) is superb. You may also include the VSL oboe (16 bit) - Horizon Opus I Series but you need to add some EQ and or room presence to it..
