Precisionsound has announced the release of Indian Santoor, a new sample library in Kontakt, EXS24 and HALion formats.
The Santoor/Santur is a flat shaped instrument in the form of a trapezoid (it is wider at one end and short at the other end). It is a wooden box that is broader in size for low pitch notes and is tapered at the other side for the high pitched notes.
The Indian Santoor used in this SampleSet was crafted in Delhi, India. It has 31 notes in units of 3, resulting in a total of 93 strings. The Indian Santoor is 3 octaves from C2 to C5, with four velocity layers and four round-robin hits (Kontakt and EXS24 format only) for a very sensitive and natural playability.
The Indian Santoor contains:
- 573 stereo 24bit wav samples.
- 8 programs for HALion 1-3.
- 8 programs for EXS24.
- 9 programs for NI Kontakt v1-2.
- 1 multi program for Kontakt 3 and 4 with KSP script and GUI, (NI Kontakt 3 and 4 format requires the full version of NI Kontakt 3 or 4 and does not work fully with the free Kontakt player).
Indian Santoor costs $69 (+$11 if you want it on DVD) and all formats are included.
