Eb Clarinet - You're Missing a standard Auxilary!
I'd like to make a case for including the Eb clarinet as a more standard auxilary instrument in all your libraries.
The Eb clarinet is well and truly a 'standard' auxilary and should be included well ahead of some of the other auxilaries you have in your collection.
The Eb clarinet has quite a unuqie texture that is as different from the Bb/A instrument as the Bass clarinet is different to the Bb/A instrument. Note that the difference is not just in the high range, but the entire instrument. Just listen to Ravel's Bolero and hear the difference between the Bb clarinet line and the solo Eb clarinet. The Bb is comparativly melifluous whereas the Eb has a slightly more edgier sound that rings out across the orchestra a bit better. Note especially that area around the throat tones have an extra pungency used really well in the Ravel.
It's an excellent instrument and should be included whenever standard auxilaries are included in a sample library.
Is there a reason for this that I don't understand? I would dealy like to see you include this instrument well ahead of the contra-bass clarinet, for example.
