VST Alarm Offers FREE Apache Flute For A Limited Time

8

VST Alarm offers the Apache sampled flute instrument FREE for a limited time.

The Apache is a sampled flute instrument from New Nation LLC, and for the next 20+ days, it’s absolutely free.

The Apache features four sampled flutes from the Chippewa Natives of Central Michigan, USA.

Each flute offers a different tone, and you can create unique sounds by blending the four.

Flute VSTs can be pretty hit and miss (in my opinion). Whenever I find one, I dream of Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy playing Jazz flute, and I’m left awfully disappointed.

But, when they are good, they can be excellent.

The Apache promises an authentic Native American sound, and if you’re making any sort of indigenous music, it should serve you very well. Authenticity aside, a good flute sound can also be a handy addition to various mainstream genres.

A flute is a common lead sound in Hip Hop and its various sub-genres. It’s also a great hook sound for some Pop and Electronic music. Having said that, I’ll still play St Thomas first and hope I sound like Ron Burgundy.

The nicely laid out GUI has three main sections, the main effects section, sampler section, and quick effects section.

The main effects section starts with a basic Filter (HP/LP) and a simple LFO (Waves). The following two effects, Feel and Artifacts, are EQ bands that help tweak the emotion of your sound. Feel focuses on the low to mid-frequency range and Artifacts concentrates on the highs.

As far as sound design goes, that’s a decent start for shaping and adding texture/color.

This section also houses Reverb settings, Delay, and the ten factory presets.

The Sampler section allows you to activate or turn off each of the four voices (samples). Each voice has a dedicated filter, envelope, gain, and pan controls.

At the bottom of the interface, the quick effects section provides output controls for the main effects. It also features a global Gain knob.

Looking elsewhere to get the average retail price of The Apache, I can see on ADSR Sounds it sells for $30. It also reminded me that the Puncher 2 plugin is free with any purchase at ADSR Sounds right now.

The Apache is available in AU and VST3 formats for macOS (10.13 upwards) and Windows (10).

Compatible with all major DAWs, excluding Pro Tools.

  1. Hi James, thank you for sharing thi vst here.
    I must say:
    This vst doesn’t sound like a 100% flute, it’s needs work for sure.

    Another issue is that I could’t reset my password right, so I sent Edgar (the creator) an email and he didn’t answer since.
    A bit disappointing…

  2. Once registered at Apache’s newnationllc.com 1) doesn’t let you delete the account 2) there’s an option to insert your paypal to receive rewards 3) all social medias links lead to broken instagram accounts. Scamy if you ask me.

  3. Yeah cmd, I heard that someone else tried to reach this Edgar guy from vstalaram
    He wrote to Edgar that it doesn’t work and asked for a solution
    Edgar from “vstalaram” said that he is forwarding this email to the New Nation (another website that you must register to)
    they returned an email with the “right coupon” and they demand 5$ for this plugin, even with this coupon entered.

    This is not free!!! This is a scam be careful!

    James, please check it out? Usualy Bedroom Producers are handing us any passwords here, and this time there is no password…

    Happy independence day to us all

      Hey Dar, thanks for the information. I will add this info to the article so that other readers can see it and decide whether or not they want to proceed with downloading.

  4. Just went through all the registration/wait for coupon/yet another registration/apply coupon/download/installation process with no hassle at all. Plugin itself works fine and imo sounds great. (Having no clue on native american flutes :)) So thanks for great tip (as usually) bpb!
