    Flute effect name

    I was just working on some of our upcoming Flute samples and came across an effect that doesn't have a name.
    Perhaps someone out there is more knowledgable about what this sort of effect is called and how you might expect to see it notated. You can listen to it here.

    I always thought that was just called "overblowing".

    Exactly.

    I was going to go with that name but then I thought it might be hard to organize.

    We've got overblown staccatos which are seperate and more easily definable because by overblowing on a low octave fingering you are hitting the harmonic for the upper octave. But this effect is achieved by fingering one note and then overblowing and fingering a new note in the middle. There is also a slight fall at the end. Perhaps I could just call it an overblown effect.

    I would call it: "Overblow_Fall"

    Or: "Ian_Anderson_FX"

    Great sound btw. I as looking a long time to find a flute to play like this fantastic flute:

    Re: Flute effect name

    "Overblow fall" works for me but I'd add minor / dom.7th to the name.

    Steve, it's a single note. How could it possibly take on the attributes of a chord?

    Listen to it closely. There are 2 notes.
    It's a gliss of sorts from a minor 3rd to a root note, or from an other perspective, from a root note to a 6th.

    Sorry about the dominant 7th ... I just woke up and was deaf! <G>

    I head slight flutter tongue in the sample.

    Poor articulation causes 2 notes to sound. Was it intentional?

    Or is it possible that you first have to hear just a little of the fundamental tone in order to then generate the upper overblown harmonic? (I'm not a flautist.)

    An example of this flute player using this technique at some length, can be found here.
