Duduk demo using Garritan World Instruments

I created a basic demo of the duduk from Garritan.

I've played everything (except percussion and bass) on an EWI USB, no post processing was made.
Duduk and Darbuka is from Garritan World Instruments, strings from Garritan Personal Orchestra, bass from Garritan Jazz and Big Band.
I used the reverb included in the Aria player.

Then I found that while according to wikipedia the duduk note range is from F#4 to A5, the samples in Garritan World Instruments goes from D3 to E4! So I transposed the demo lower with a fifth, and I think I got something much more expressive and realistic. Hear it yourself:
