This library features a deeply sampled plucked zither, a small harp-like instrument, recorded in close stereo, and mapped across a playable range of four octaves. There is an additional layer of ambient sound design, the 'dream layer', which blends beautifully with the acoustic zither.
Dream Zither was close miked in a dry space, allowing the flexibility of adding how much or little reverb you want. It was recorded with a multitude of velocity layers, which allows for very delicate and realistic playing.
The Dream Layer is a bed of ambient sound design, made from the zither samples, transformed and processed in many ways to create an ethereal pad which blends with the dry zither perfectly. The volume, intensity and pitch of the Dream Layer can be customised to create a range of timbral colours. Alternatively, the Dream Layer can be disabled completely for a pure zither sound.
Dream Zither is designed to be a 'plug and play' instrument which sounds great out of the box, but still gives you enough flexibility to dial in your own sound.
