SwarPlug 4 will be available as a free update for all registered SwarPlug 3 users.
Sitar ML Pack
Along with this plugin update, Swar Systems will also be releasing a new multi-layered (ML) pack that includes 2 different Sitars and a Surbahar. These have been perfectly resampled in 48kHz, 24-bit, multiple mics (direct mono and stereo) and multiple samples per stroke. Each string has been recorded individually and can be rearranged to fit the disposition of your MIDI controller.
This new Sitar ML Pack will be available as an add-on for a small upgrade fee.
ML Swarmandal and Tanpuras
SwarPlug 4 will also include a new Swarmandal and new Tanpuras, all resampled with the same highest quality. Both new ML Packs will be free downloads for registered users.
SwarPlug 4 and the new ML packs are expected to be released by mid August.
