The flugelhorn in Bb is a member of the bugle-horns family like the euphonium or the (contra)bass tuba, even though the instrument looks rather like a larger trumpet. The name originates from the “Flügelmeister” of the 18th century, who had to coordinate various regimental flanks in a battle with blasts from the instrument. Beyond its use in military and marching bands it is a favorite solo instrument in jazz music today. Being almost as flexible as the trumpet, the flugelhorn features a much softer and warmer tone due to its cone-shaped and wide bell.

Sehr schöner Klang, gute und ausdrucksstarke Spielbarkeit.
Super! Tolles Produkt!
VSL hat es verstanden, dieses wunderschöne Instrument zu sampeln und spielbar zu machen. Der weiche Klang kommt richtig zur Geltung. Als Live-Musiker ersetze ich fast alle Keyboard-Instrumente mit virtuellen Instrumenten. In diesem Fall also das Flügelhorn in den Begleitstyles von Ketron SD7 mit dem Flügelhorn von VSL. Mit diesem Setting tönt es nicht mehr nach einem langweiligen Keyboard, sondern wie eine Live Band.
Your purchase of any VSL library entitles you to download the free Vienna Instruments Player software that includes the Vienna Ensemble mixing host.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in the box of any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
