A flute is a deflection aerophone in which a stream of air is led over an edge (cutting edge) at which it begins to vibrate (compare the articles woodwind instrument and pipe). In the Hornbostel-Sachs system, flutes are therefore referred to as cutting instruments. In everyday language, "flute" usually stands for the transverse flute or the recorder. Pan flutes consist of several single-tone flutes connected to each other.
There are flutes with and without a core gap, an air channel that guides the air jet to the blowing edge. On flutes without a core gap, the air jet is formed by the player's lips and/or tongue.
Further divisions and designations result from where one blows into the flute, how the pitch is influenced, whether the lower end is closed or not, whether it is a single flute tube or an instrument with several flutes, and how these are played (directly blown or with valves, controlled by a mechanism or a keyboard, as with the organ). The culture from which a flute originates is also used for classification.

Happy mid tempo pirate song featuring accordion and flute.
Driving and majestic, featuring warm brass, strings and percussion that create a glorious, courageous mood.
A civil war marching tune featuring piccolo, flute and many snares. The army marches to the battlefield, great for documentaries.
Uplifting orchestra track with some sound effects and with irish instruments
Beautiful and positive atmo track with ethnic elements.
This sneaky and lightly comedic soundtrack has sudden mood changes shifting back and forth from mysterious suspense to playful curiosity. Well suited for humorous cross cutting scenes, cartoons, animation, kids programs, whodunit capers, and more.
Uplifting, positive film music Hollywood-style. Motivating and inspiring.
Music from the Movie "Mille Miglia - Spirit of a legend" (2007)
Very emotional, heartwarming and slightly melancholic piano music with wonderful harmonies
Profound interesting chill out with a slightly exotic feel. A laid-back beat is the base for a fascinating track featuring unusual instrumentation.
This is the vitality of Africa! This positive track suits documentaries, image films or productions for Television.
A happy uplifting dance tune for the whole village. Featuring fiddle, penny whistle, flute and bagpipe.
A gentle penny whistle melody with lush strings and light toms. Reflective and peaceful.
Pirates cheers from their big ship
Swirling, Fluid, Lively
Nice folk music from the Andean area. Pan flute, typical string instruments and a great community spirit!
Lyrical recorder & cello in a Clannad and Enya tinged piece. The track starts off with a soft Celtic music theme. After about 1 min 15 seconds it changes pace into a jolly forest dance, and then returns to the longing opening theme, before closing with Enya-like voice textures.
full orchestra, featuring Strings, Woodwinds and percussion
A rhythmic, dark, orchestral track of amazement and tension. Similar to the style/sound of Hans Zimmer music, this cinematic piece has a strong sense of nerve and drama.
A classic music box theme, coherent and convincing
A very relaxed and slightly ethereal bossa nova with piano, flute, guitar, bass, percussion, electric piano and percussion.
An epic, grand sounding track with a slight Greek, Oriental, Eastern or "Ancient World" feel. Ethnic, exotic, and dangerous. The first 45 seconds or so are rather pensive, before it builds up into a grand, sweeping, majestic and exciting piece. Good for dramatic trailers, dramatic scenes, grand, wide open spaces of Arabia, Egypt or ancient Greek etc. Picture ancient warriors on the warpath, or a dangerous situation building...
