Sonica Instruments releases free updates to its Virtuoso Japanese Series, along with two special offers

Sonica Instruments

Sonica Instruments has updated all eight of its Virtuoso Japanese Series libraries — ranging from three koto libraries to Kabuki and Noh theater percussion instruments, and from the sanshin to the rare sho flute.

The updated libraries now include 20 default MIDI grooves and a useful Groove Browser for exploring authentic musical phrases tailored for each instrument. The Browser provides full control over swing, velocity, and other parameters, and the MIDI phrases can be exported directly to your DAW.

When combined with the upcoming Groove Inspirations MIDI packs, the Groove Browser gives you access to a wealth of high-quality phrase banks.

Updates are available for free through Native Access.

Two Special Offers

To mark the release of the updated Virtuoso Japanese Series libraries, Sonica Instruments is running two special time-limited offers.

Ten Percent Off All Titles

All Virtuoso Japanese Series titles can be purchased at 10 percent off regular prices until October 31, 2022:

MIDI Pack Giveaway for Early Purchasers / Existing Owners

Anyone who purchases KOTO 13 Version 2 or TSUGARU SHAMISEN by October 31, 2022, will receive the respective Groove Inspirations MIDI pack (regularly $49 each, scheduled to be released on November 1) for free. This offer is available to existing owners of the NA editions of these libraries as well (NA libraries are libraries installed through Native Access.).

A coupon code will be sent out to be redeemed on the Sonica Instruments online store for the Groove Inspirations packs when they are released.

About Groove Inspirations packs

Sonica Instruments is creating a line of Groove Inspirations MIDI packs to introduce owners of Virtuoso Japanese Series libraries to authentic phrases, complete with natural articulations and nuances, commonly played on the real instruments.

Designed exclusively for each instrument, the Groove Inspirations packs contain over 500 MIDI phrases, including both full traditional songs and short phrases that showcase what the instruments are capable of.

The ready-to-use MIDI phrases serve many applications. You can use them as is or take them as inspiration for your own compositions or customize and extend them as you explore new musical directions.
