Precisionsound has released Greek Lira in HALion and Kontakt formats.
The Lira (kemance) is a traditional Greek instrument used in Mediterranean folk music - a small 3 stringed instrument played with a bow and with a quite limited tonal range.
The Lira has been sampled in a way that makes it more like a universal "ethno violin", the articulations represented in this SampleSet are more "over the top" than the actual instrument is used for traditionally. For example, pizzicato and staccato playing is not, traditionally often or at all, played with this type of instrument.
The articulations are:
- Regular unlooped notes
- Legato unlooped notes
The SampleSet contains 254 24-bit WAV files divided into 28 programs for Kontakt and 25 programs for HALion. Both formats are included when you buy Greek Lira, which costs $49 (+$11 if you want it on CD).
