Product Overview

“Sea Trumpets” is a virtual musical instrument that’s built with samples of conches. Seashell horns. Conques. Shell trumpets. Conch horns. Triton’s Trumpets. They have many different names, but they’re made of shells of large sea snails and they have been used for thousands of years.

I sampled 35 conches of the collection of “water musician” Reinier Sijpkens, he blew them himself. It took him decades to collect that many, and now he has one of the biggest collections in the world. “Sea Trumpets” comes with 583 samples of about 30 seconds.

Two groups have seamless loops so they sound even longer. Full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher is required.

The instrument will work for 30 minutes in the free Kontakt Player and can’t be deeply edited. “Sea Trumpets” comes with two presets: Ensemble and Monophonic.

An instrument that I didn\'t know I needed

One of the things I love to do as a composer is find interesting instruments to add into my pieces, both to make it stand out and to add a bit of color to the usual orchestral stuff I tend to work with. Conch horns have always fascinated me, and seeing this instrument was incredible. Then being able to use it and hear those beautiful sounds was great. My only qualm is the price; while it is a very high-quality instrument, $30 for a very limited range of sounds made me a bit hesitant to make my purchase.
