Sonokinetic releases Sultan Strings - Middle Eastern Performance String Ensemble for Kontakt, HALion and EXS

Sonokinetic has released Sultan Strings, a new Middle Eastern Performance String Ensemble sample library for Kontakt, HALion and EXS.

sultan.jpgSonokinetic says "You'll never find samples anywhere else that match the uniqueness, originality and authentic middle eastern style that is found in this massive collection of string ensemble performances. Impossible to recreate or compose with ordinary string sample-libraries or dedicated string library platforms, this collection focuses on live performances by one of the world's best middle eastern string ensembles and royalty free custom composed arabian styled phrases."

3 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello make up this strong and convincing performance sampling string ensemble. Sonokinetic approached this recording with a 'digital' composer's mind and need. Working from the base up Sonokinetic created a diverse collection of phrases that would need to be widely usable in music compositions and large audio productions. So tempo syncing and a wide availability in all keys has been top priority in this production.

For each phrase Sonokinetic also included an octaved overdub, mapped to the keyboard an octave higher than the original to easily layer them and make it a breeze to build the tension in your compositions and to instantly fatten the sound and expand your orchestra.

Although Sonokinetic focus on the user interfaces of Native Instrument's Kontakt format other core sample audio formats are available to fit every need and make this collection widely accessible for every producer and composer.


  • Core samples: 16 instrument patch containing the following playing styles:
    • 50 tempo-synced 2 bar phrases with octaved overdubs.
    • Tempo-synced runs (up and down).
    • Sustains (with dynamic crossfading to vibrato).
    • Tremolos.
    • Trills.
    • Glissandi.
  • Single instrument for Kontakt 4.2 and higher with 4 panels – Main, IR, EQ & Credits.
  • 4x EXS24 patches for phrases and multi sampled collections.
    • Light version for phrases (for quicker loading and less strain on RAM).
  • 4x HALion patches (phrases and multi samples).
  • Apple Loop format (all phrases tempo-synced).
  • Tempo-synced runs (Up, Down and Up-Down).
  • Convolution reverb applied to the multi instrument to represent the original acoustic space.
  • Sonokinetic IR space design knob to allow dynamic assignment and configuration of the convolution effects.
  • Dynamic sample loading & purging for efficient memory usage.
  • Customisable key-switching system to allow command of articulations in your compositions.
  • Visual representation of current key when playing phrases.
  • 5500+ samples (5.33 GB sample content) (excl. apple loops, 11,000 samples total, 10.25 GB total).
