Fanan team has released Sultana 2, a darbuka machine for Windows. They say:
Sultana 2 is a slot driven Darbuka machine that brings up some new inventions. It uses 60 elements darbuka kit, which makes it one the most detailed darbuka instrument in the market. Each drum element can be tweaked and designed separately. We've also included a new "color" tool which can give every sound a unique character (picky, crisp, glassy or metallic). There are also built in effects including the zelda filter which fully colors the overall sound.
Sultana is not only a sampler but also styles MIDI sequencer. It uses the arranger keyboards style sequencer method to run 8 simultaneous MIDI grooves per style that can be switched instantly with a MIDI keyboard (octave C4). Each variation gets its own MIDI key number and the transitions are synced to the determined tempo. users can also program their own styles as well and then share style files others.
