Virtuasonic has released Sinori Live, a sample library for Kontakt 4 based on a new musical instrument called Sinori.
Sinori is a one of a kind percussion derived from a sheet of steel, capable of producing a wide range of interesting sounds thanks to its unorthodox design and shape that allows unique playing techniques, as well as the most traditional ones. If you want more information about the Sinori Percussion, you can visit www.sinoripercussion.com.
Throughout the last year, Virtuasonic has recorded two Sinori models in collaboration with its creator: a standard version (named Sinori Studio, not yet released) and a special prototype (Sinori Live). This sample library features the Live model.
Thanks to the high resolution samples recorded at 24 bit / 96 KHz and the mapping capabilities of Kontakt, the instrument's range has been extended to produce a wide palette of sounds that can rival other metallic percussions and bring new flavours to your compositions at the same time.
