Ventus Shakuhachi – Original Sound Version
“Ventus Series: Shakuhachi delivers a clear and lifelike performance of the instrument and there are plenty of options for customizing various aspects of the sound. The ornaments feature allows for more spontaneous sounding performances that reflect the strengths of the Shakuhachi’s idiomatic sound. Inclusion of a phrase library offers additional sounds to either enhance existing performances of the main instrument or for use as one shot effects or sound design.” (Original Sound Version)
Ventus Winds Shakuhachi – Producer Spot
“With “Ventus Shakuhachi” you get several times what you pay for, plus the promise of more similar, masterpieces where this came from…If you are like me, and like exotic instruments, produce lots of hip hop or ethnic tracks, or work in film or games, this is almost a must-have. It will make all your Shakuhachi dreams come true, and that without even straining your budget too much.”
Ventus Winds Bansuri – Sample Library Review
“When I started working with the Bansuri, I immediately took note of the realistic haunting and breathy sound of the sampled Bansuri. This is as authentic a playing experience as you can get unless you play the real thing…The Ventus Bansuri is clearly at home in traditional Indian music but would also be a suitable tool for film scores that call [for] an Indian theme or it could even be used as a voice in ambient and meditational music.”

Ventus Winds Tin Whistle – Sample Library Review
“What I really like about this library is the detail that has gone into capturing all the interesting nuances of the instrument and how these can be brought in with the ornament dial to add a sense of realism to this instrument. It definitely adds an authenticity to it, and helps you get the performance you want out of it.”

Ventus Winds Ocarinas – Sample Library Review
“I would absolutely recommend this instrument to any media composer. It’s always the niche sounds that no one ever thinks they need, until they need it. The ocarina is no exception and Impact Soundworks has done a fantastic job creating a truly wonderful instrument.”

Ventus Winds Pan Flutes – gearspace.com
“Ventus Ethnic Winds Pan Flutes sounds spectacular and is the perfect tool when pan flute instruments are required, it’s perfect for inclusion in orchestral scores and other projects…This collection has all the articulations and phrases to keep your workflow moving along. Highly recommended for musicians, producers, and sound designers who are looking to incorporate lively pan flutes into their compositions.” (5/5)
