Hello--I was planning on purchasing the standard library for Flute 1, but I was able to try what seemed to be the same product at a local guitar center. There were very few articulations and no trills, despite the fact that VSL mentions trills on the download instrument's products page. I have two fundamental questions:

1> is the flute 1 download instrument the same as the flute one in Vienna Special Edition?

2> Is there any way that someone could provide me with recordings of the flute 1 standard library articulations, so I am absolutely sure that I am getting all of the articulations that are absolutely necessary for me? (perhaps this is a bit much to ask for, but I'd still be very appreciative if someone were to help.)

Thank you all.

By the way, is flute 1 worth it if I have the flute from Kontakt?

The download instruments and the Special Edition are two different things.  It's unlikelly that the Guitar Center would be demoing the DL FLute1, as they aren't selling it; you have to buy directly on here.

Look under "Sample Content" on the product info page to see what articulations are included in statdard and extended.

Aha! So they are indeed two different products; thank you for clearing that up.
In this case, what is the difference between "flutter + trills" and "perf trill"?

Hi synchronizer, 

flutter tongue and trills are "single note samples" (the trill is played back as it was recorded), whereas you can play a trill yourself with the Performance Trill Patch (it´s a very fast Performance Legato with a round robin of intervals).

Thank you. Basically, the extended library has customizable trills, among other articulations.

Hi, 

You can also use these fast legatos to play all kinds of runs, and with the "Speed" control these variations for the performance legato in different speeds make a lot of sense as well (the note transitions are faster, which also makes the instrument more agile). 

Best, 

Paul

Unfortunately, I can not afford the full price of about 140 Euros, which equates to approximately 190 US Dollars. I could purchase the standard library and wait until i can get the expansion, but the standard library seems pretty limited as is.
Is it true that educational discounts are only seasonal and apply to only batch purchases? I happen to be a High School student.

That is true, we traditionally offer student discounts in our autumn special offers.
