Impact Soundworks proudly presents Plectra Series 4: Turkish Oud, an extensive sampling of a masterwork six-course / eleven-string oud. This Kontakt 5 library features all crucial playing techniques, two microphone positions, 4x dynamic levels and 4x round robins per note (2x up / 2x down), true legato transitions, and a focus on easy playability.
Recorded in Greece by Stelios Varveris and produced by Dimitris Plagiannis, Plectra Series 4 focuses entirely on one instrument to provide as much realism and authenticity as possible. Though recorded with standard tuning, a powerful microtuning script is included in the instrument engine, allowing for custom scales and non-Western tuning in any key.
For articulations, the library contains sustain picking (up, down & alternating strokes), hammer-on & pull-off legato, glissando, tremolo, strummed chords (major, minor, fifth), natural vibrato, and realistic finger noises. The script engine automatically handles all fingering and voicing, though users can also customize which strings are prioritized.
As pictured in the screenshots, Plectra Series 4 also has an inspiring and streamlined user interface, offering easy control over microtuning, mixing (compressor, convolution reverb, EQ, mic mix), keyswitch assignment, and neck / performance view.
Plectra Series 4: Turkish Oud is available for the introductory price of $99 through October 27, 2014 (MSRP: $119).
