Cinematic Woodwind Shorts

A symphony of progress: Versatile, Agile, and Detailed

Fluid Woods marks the 3rd collaborative effort between Audio Imperia and Performance Samples, falling in lock step with Fluid Woods’ goals: fast repetition-sourced shorts sampling in a decidedly easy-to-use interface.

Just as with Fluid Brass, Fluid Woods brings together the repetition sampling concepts of the Fluid Shorts line by Performance Samples and Audio Imperia’s refined approach to consistent and high-level product design. This unique combination brings you the ultimate pro-user woodwinds shorts library with its fluent and rapid repeated playability.

The instrument configuration is traditional: solo flute, solo oboe, solo clarinet, solo bassoon, and solo piccolo – recorded in tutti in the same room as Fluid Brass. The library highlights up to 8 dynamics and 6 rep speeds, going above and beyond even Fluid Brass in terms of expression.

Features at a Glance



Lush Sound

No need to worry about controlling the intricate details with keyswitching and envelopes. Fluid Woods handles all of that under the hood, adapting to the speed of your playing, allowing you to create fluent and realistic performances more effortlessly.

All you need for symphonic orchestral brass writing. Fluid, swift, and evocative repeated patterns, bridging the gap between the digital and the feel of a live session.

Recorded in the same lush sounding hall as Dolce Romantic Chamber Strings, Fluid Woods, and Performance Samples’ Pacific, Caspian, and Con Moto.

  • With Fluid Woods, the coalescence of Audio Imperia and Performance Samples’ collaborative efforts takes yet another step towards creating better tools for composers and producers worldwide.

  • Fluid Woods was sampled with incredible detail, featuring up to 8 dynamic layers and up to 10 round robins. All samples are sourced from real repetition performances, for enhancing the cohesive energy of your lines. We’ve also recorded the samples at different speeds (six in total), with the faster speeds automatically triggered based on your playing speed. This extensive sampling accommodates faster phrases – leading to more fluent and realistic results, as you directly trigger samples pulled from faster performances.


  • Building on Jasper Blunk’s experience with the room; the recording space in Jihlava, renowned for its lush sound, suited this project perfectly.
