Embertone says that The Charmer, a  middle-eastern, double reed shawm, is a unique and familiar little instrument.

A spokesperson told us, "We've been sampling these simple wind instruments for several years now, and we continue striving to make the performance simpler and smoother. Here we've tried something new that we think helps expedite the process of performing: velocity based legato control! Play overlapped notes at a low velocity, you'll get an expressive slide between notes. Play at a normal velocity, the standard slur legato will result. If you play at a moderately high velocity, it will trigger tongued legato... and at the very highest level of velocity, ornaments!"
