Swar Systems has announced the release of SwarPlug 4, a fully re-engineered version of the Indian music synth packed with new features such as buses and effects, MPE support, key mappings customisation, portamento, legato, scales customisation with semitone tuning, time-stretching and more.
New Sitar/Surbahar ML Pack
Along with this plugin update, Swar Systems are also releasing a new multi-layered (ML) pack that includes 2 different Sitars and a Surbahar, perfectly resampled in 48kHz, 24-bit, multiple mics (direct mono and stereo) and multiple samples per stroke. It also comes with a large set of ragas development (aalaps) in MIDI format that you can audition and get inspired from.
Additional (free) sample packs
Swar Systems have also released a couple more sample packs that you can download free of cost through the Swar Dashboard utility that comes with SwarPlug 4:
- Fully resampled (48kHz, 24-bit) Swarmandal in 3 layers, with beautiful strokes, soft, normal, and somehow sharper ones. Also includes upwards and downwards scales (aroha & avaroha) of over 110 ragas as MIDI clips that can be dragged directly on your tracks.
- Three new professional Tanpuras, fully resampled (48kHz, 24-bit, dual mics) in 3 layers and including ready-made MIDI drones for both Ma and Pa in all possible keys and in 4 different plucking cycles (Pa Sa Sa Sa, Pa - Sa Sa Sa, Pa Sa Sa Sa -, Pa - Sa Sa Sa -) that will make it very easy to add Tanpura tracks to your compositions.
