Introducing Drone Flutes, a fantastic collection of six indigenous Central American drone flutes, in the Mayan, Aztec and Zapotec traditions. This library is perfect for cinematic compositions, video game scoring, folk music and creative sound-design.

The first instrument is the Double Wooden F#4 Drone Flute. It reaches from F#4 to Bb5, with soulful overtones and a wooden, breathy timbre. Next up is the Double Zapotec A4 Clay Flute, spanning from A4 to C6. In the midrange, the Harmony C4 Flute spans C4 to Eb5. The Quad Clay Flute plays D5 to F#6 – the ceramic body gives it a warm, rounded sound for gentle melodies or powerful rhythms. The Triple Snake Flute and Triple Zapotec Clay Flute both span F4 to Ab5. All of these flutes come with a variety of articulations and mic positions so you can mix and match to create your own chamber ensemble. This level of depth and detail lets you craft naturally lush drone flute arrangements, while our advanced sound-shaping and dynamic performance features allow you to explore with complete freedom.


We recorded a variety of chromatic articulations, improvised phrases and effects in meticulous detail at St Paul’s Church in San Francisco. With 3 distinct mic positions (Close, Mid & Far), you can create beautiful combinations to place these instruments in any mix.
