Don't forget to include Indian Swarmandal please ! :)
All sample libraries seem to forget about this most heavenly of instruments.
The best for drones and glissandos. Also, if sampling a tambura, sample it carefully in the higher registers. Normally the lower register samples resonate well and sustain for enough time, BUT higher ones die off much too quickly - this is the problem with RA's Tambura.

I have QL RA and a Roland World card, access to Indian musicians but can never get enough of Indian instrument samples. :o

balafons - please sample multiple instrument sizes in order to get a large pitch range. most balafon collections only sample a single instrument, which provides a very limited range.

lithophone - if you can find one.

guzheng

kora

I would love to see a Charango (small Peruvian guitar). I am guessing it would fit perfectly with your Bolivian panflute for some really authentic Andean music:

A Cuban Tres would also be really great! It is an integral part of the popular bolero and other Cuban styles. I'm sure it would give an awesome traditional sound to any production:

Thank you "paveloso" this is a top notch request for libraries, the way we like it.
, pictures etc. and examples of music/bands and use. Very nice.

Keep on making wishes, all of you, help us out to help you out in the search for inspiring sounds.

Best regards,

Lars

Hello there :phones:

I've been looking for some Ocarina sounds lately, with hardly no luck.

It seems that there's no alternative to Sampletank or Colossus, and no matter how much I enjoy the sound of Ocarina, there's no way I buy such a huge library for the sake of a single instrument (not to mention the fact that I would certainly trust you more with preserving the naive yet delicate beauty of this little windy).

Now would'nt that be a nice & easy addition to your wind collection ? Come on… I know how underrated it is somehow but I'll buy 2 if this helps :P

Playing range (see? not so much notes to work on :ud: )

In the same mood, I've been thinking about some whistling samples… That I would VERY MUCH like, but I don't know if it's do-able.

The Suzuki's Omnichord crossed my mind too :

Could be a nice evolution to the stylophone collection. Different models, mostly sought after… Then again, this might be a "script-hell" to program with regard to the way the real instrument is played (with the kind of "auto-arpeggio" or "auto-chord" stuff, like you would hit a C3 -> no sound but next keyboard keys you'd hit would let you arpeggiate a C chord)…

I have no idea if all this would be possible, but hey, I'd be better spending $200 at your store again than trying to get an omnichord on eBay, plus I have no time to learn & play the Ocarina - neither skills to any whistling at all :hihi:

Anyway, I love what you're doing, so just keep it up !

A very happy new year to you (and thanks for the Winter Sale) !

AKJ pointed some interesting instruments, I like too Indian, Middle East & African music.

The Ney would need some "breathing" feature as part of its specific & beautiful sound.

We already talked about the Daf WITH the "ring" attached all around.

I also can think of the ZARB also known as TOMBAK from Iran, there are famous world player as Djamchid Chemirani & his sons Keyvan & Bijan Chemirani.

Here's a link where you can see some info & picture of Tombak.

Of course as usual with instruments great attention has to be taken upon selection of them for the best possible quality.

How about a concertina? There's a post in the Instruments board right now asking about concertina sounds, and I didn't see any in a quick check of Google or some other sample vendors.

Edit: I found one, but it's not available standalone.
