Bulbul Tarang (aka Indian Banjo)

The Bulbul Tarang (aka Indian Banjo) is a 15 string instrument common in India and Pakistan. The instrument employs three sets of strings - a double set of melodic strings and two sets of drone strings. The melodic strings contains a bass- and treble-string. 8DIO deep-sampled both of strings individually and combined with multiple velocity layers on each string and round robin on the sustains. The drone strings are divided into group of 10 and group of 3. 8DIO deep sampled these guys too at multiple velocity layers and 10 round robin per layer.

The Bulbul also contains a variety of other deep-sampled articulations, including drone strings in both minor and major scales, muted notes on melodic strings, tremolo, typewriter keystyle and a wide assortment of FX. Additionally 8DIO added a large phrase collection focused on strums. The strums comes both as multi-samples and as phrase-samples, so you can create the ideal soundscape depending on your needs.


  • Deep Sampled 15 Stringed Indian Banjo.
  • Deep Sampled Melodic Strings (Treble, Bass & Combined).
  • Deep Sampled Drone Strings (Resonators).
  • Deep Phrase Sampled BPM Strums.
  • Bonus: Melodic Phrase Patches.
  • Bonus: Ambient and Emotional Bulbul Drones.
