ProducerLoops has released Middle Eastern Instruments, a collection of traditional Ney, Setar and Tar recordings. The Producer Loops team recorded these unique instruments on location in the Middle East, capturing every nuance of each instrument and utilising the talents of three skilled traditional musicians.
The Setar is a stringed instrument used in Folk and Classical music throughout Iran. The drone string on the Setar adds an almost hypnotic quality to the sounds produced by this traditional instrument from the lute family.
The Iranian Tar is a close cousin of the Setar but has a fuller presence due to its three drone strings. The figure-of-8 shaped sound bowl on this instrument gives it a resonance like no other.
The wind instrument heard within the demo is the Ney, a flute which is popular throughout all regions of the Middle East. Pair a simple drum beat with a Ney loop and you'll instantly transport your listeners to a souk. This is the quintessential sound of the Middle East.
