The Electric Saz library for Kontakt is a fully playable virtual Turkish Guitar library based on a deeply-sampled electric 5-stringed fretless hollow-body saz baglâma instrument. It sounds strikingly like an electric guitar in certain ways, but with a unique flavor and tone. It was recorded in multiple pick-up and coil polarity configurations with custom low-noise wiring to provide strong tone and clarity and users can select the pick-up position and phase in real-time through the custom UI.
This instrument includes a wide range of sustained plucks, palm mutes and chokes, true-legato slide and release behavior, hand-slaps, bends and more, with extensive round-robin sampling per articulation on each string. Intuitive strum, arpeggiation, gliss, legato and transient shaping controls allow realistic fingering and expressive real-time lead and rhythm performance within a single unified UI. The GUI allows full control over each string, including key range, string selection, hammer-ons, pull-offs, legato and pluck type, all with key-switch support. It also features live strumming and chord generation tools can handle any style of lead or rhythm playing in any key or mode. Each control can be automated by MIDI and all primary features can be controlled via dedicated key-switches.
Every preset also includes a full Effects Rack control panel, with multi-effects (chorus, flanger, phaser), compression, drive and distortion, amp simulation, a variety of different speaker cabs, parametric EQ, tempo-synching delay and reverb, including 45 real-world spaces and 25 original FX impulses. This library is designed and optimized for Kontakt 5, but includes special legacy presets for Kontakt 4 users that preserve most core features. This library is securely watermarked for each user and requires the full retail version of Kontakt. It is not supported by the Kontakt Player.
