From Calypso to Flamenco

Gypsy is your ticket to realistic, nuanced performances of all the major instruments found in a conventional ensemble of travelling performers. Great care was taken to iron out every performance to get the right blend of legato transitions, nimble finger work, and expression from every musician. If you’re a film, TV or game composer or simply enjoy adding eclectic instruments and styles to your compositions, the nylon guitar, violin and trombone can all play in both Gypsy and Classical styles, offering you creative flexibility. You also have multiple articulations, round robin playback and true legato to vary every passage and make each instrument sound as close to a live recording as possible.

Gypsy Dancer

There is some true character represented in Gypsy. Even more than that, I'm always enthralled when something inspires me to create, which is what I believe this library does beautifully.

An Entire Gypsy Band At Your Fingertips

There has never been such a detailed sample library dedicated specifically to a gypsy ensemble, despite so much untapped potential for media composing and songwriting. If you’re the type of writer who wants complete access to every possible instrument available around the world and incorporate vastly different styles into your music, Gypsy is simply a must-have sample library. There are no sophisticated technical underpinnings here; you simply load up the instrument of your choice, which has already been treated with the best settings for the vast majority of use cases. Gypsy’s ease of use cannot be overstated, but it makes no sacrifices in realism and recording quality to achieve it.

Accordion Player

The instruments in Gypsy are very meticulously recorded and assembled. There are numerous articulations for all of the non-percussive instruments, and the sound quality is exceptional across the board.

TapeOp

Bandoneon

Bandoneon

The bandoneon was developed in Germany and was later used in Argentina, where it became the symbol of Tango. It’s a soft accordion with doubled octaves, perfectly suited for soft melodic passages.

Campana Accordion

Campana Accordion

An Italian version of the accordion, the campana accordion has that classic accordion sound, with large note stacks and capable of broad chords. This one performs well in both solo and ensemble settings.

Cimbalom

Cimbalom

An Eastern European large hammer dulcimer with a 5-octave range and piano-like strings, the cimbalom is designed to provide soft chord beds to support ballads and quieter passages.

Classical Guitar

Classical Guitar

Calming and nimble, this classical nylon guitar is the best sounding concert guitar we’ve heard. It’s ideal for mellower flamenco or Spanish music, ballads and solo pieces.

Django Guitar

Django Guitar

A slightly hollower tone than its Classical counterpart, with a slight twang for added personality in solo passages, the django guitar has lots of jazz chords as well as a lead articulation.

Excelsior Accordion

Excelsior Accordion

Very lyrical, with a subtle chorusing effect that gently swells with each note, this Italian excelsior accordion is best suited to quieter passages that allow it space to breathe.

Flamenco Dancer

Flamenco Dancer

Full of foot stomps and traditional castanets, this collection is nimble and designed to provide a distinctly human element to the percussion section.

Flamenco Guitar

Flamenco Guitar

Best suited for melodic runs and crisp strumming, this flamenco guitar is incredibly agile and evokes the spirit of virtuosic nylon performances.

Gypsy Percussion

Gypsy Percussion

A range of tambourine, clacks, shakers and chants to support the groove, this collection makes it easy to create the sound of an entire percussion ensemble.

Silvestri Accordion

Silvestri Accordion

An American accordion with a classic sound called upon for ballads, sea shanties, and a range of lyrical styles.

Trombone

Trombone

Highly nimble for solo performances, this trombone adds a mellow and earthy touch to an ensemble of strings and percussion.

Violin

Violin

One of the most coveted solo violins in the sample library industry, it allows you to create a convincingly nuanced performance in classical, jazz, gypsy, and tango styles.

Violin Player

The solo violin is probably the most high-profile instrument in this library, with its big, rich sound. The classical guitar is absolutely lovely, the programming is excellent, a real joy to play.

WHAT WILL YOU

CREATE?

There is no better tool than Gypsy to achieve an authentic flamenco, calypso, or other style of music that brings to mind a clear image of a band of travelling musicians and dancers. If you ever rely on traditional or eclectic instruments to invoke specific geographical settings (especially if you compose for film), you don’t want to be without Gypsy when you’re writing your next song or score. Which instrument will you use first?
