    Recorder samples (the instrument)


    It's *very* difficult to get search results for this, as everything seems to be tagged "recorder". And while I know other items are legitimately tagged with "recorder", it makes searching for the instrument very difficult (on any site).

    I'm essentially looking for a simple recording of the recorder scales. ie: single notes, from bottom to top, in all the appropriate scales (6 of them?), with no flare whatsoever. Just a simple "TOOT" for each note in sequence, maybe 2 seconds of each. ie: The range of the tenor recorder is from C4 to D6. Ideally, I'd like to have a (roughly) two second recording each note in the entire chromatic scale (increasing by one semitone at a time) from C4 to D6.

    Does this exist? I can somewhat find it for other instruments, but I need a solid baseline to work off of for the recorder.

    Any help is *greatly* appreciated!

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if you came across these on your search:

    Not ideal - they're alto rather than tenor and the notes may be a bit short for your purpose...
