8Dio Bulbul Tarang KONTAKT MERRY XMAS
The Bulbul Tarang (aka Indian Banjo) is a 15 string instrument common in India and Pakistan. The instrument employs three sets of strings – a double set of melodic strings and two sets of drone strings. The melodic strings contains a bass- and treble string. We deep-sampled both of strings individually and combined with multiple velocity layers on each string and round robin on the sustains. The drone strings are divided into group of 10 and group of 3. We deep sampled these guys too at multiple velocity layers and 10 round robin pr. layer.

The Bulbul also contains a variety of other deep-sampled articulations, including drone strings in both minor and major scales, muted notes on melodic strings, tremolo, trills and a wide assortment of FX. Additionally we also added a large phrase collection to the library focused on strums. The strums comes both as multi-samples and as phrase-samples, so you can create the ideal soundscape depending on your needs.

The Guzheng is a Chinese plucked zither, ancestor of several Asian instruments such as the Japanese koto, the Mongolian Yatga and the Korean gayageum. It has 21 strings and movable bridges. See pics of the instrument here.

5 articulations: fingers, pick, stick, bow and ebow. Up to 4 round robin and 4 velocity layers.
Scripted realistic tremolo effect where the last played note is retriggered on release, control the velocity and intensity of the tremolo more naturally and musically.

Ilya Efimov Fretless Bass KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX Ilya Efimov Fretless Bass KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX
This library is a detailed emulation of a hi-end 5-string "studio custom” fretless bass from the famous Canadian company F-Bass. We recorded 12 dynamic layers for each fret of each string with different playing techniques and articulations. 

The three right hand positions in one patch: normal, soft, jaco. Additional articulations - allow you to conveniently and quickly edit your midi notation or play in real-time. We have minimized the use keyswitches, making the instrument simple and intuitive to use. A sophisticated algorithm to select strings in real time, automatically selects the natural bass guitar left-hand position on the fretboard. Manual string and position selection are also available.

The library’s repetition keys make it easy to play realistic ostinato bass-lines. FX glissando will allow you to introduce new musical "colors” to your bass guitar parts. Multiple legato types are changed automatically, depending on the first note played.

Included, are several Legato modes, Open String mode, Chord Detection mode and X-note mode; for the convenience of composers and arrangers!

Tonehammer Alien Drum Vol.1 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Alien Drum Vol.1 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
The Alien Drum (aka Hang Drum – trademarked by Pan Art) is a unique tone based percussion instrument, which is almost impossible to come by, since there is only one maker in the world and less than 1000 drums in circulation. The instrument has a soft, sorrowful, melancholic tone to it and is a perfect companion for emotional or ambient type of scores. The Tonehammer Alien Drum is unique in the sense it was recorded at an average of 15 velocity layers and with 10 round-robin repetitions pr. layer/note, so you will never experience any repetition in the articulation.

We used custom microphone set-ups to capture the delicate resonance both inside and outside the drum, since the resonance defines the true sound of the drum. Additionally we sampled multiple playing techniques with fingers, palm, slaps, hand brushing and the back-side of the drum, which has the similar properties to the Udu. Multiple versions of all multis allow for a variety of ways to switch or fade between articulations while playing.

Tonehammer Alien Drum Facts:
Single finger tap on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin 
Single finger mute on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin

Cinematique Instruments Hammered Dulcimer Cinematique Instruments Hammered Dulcimer
The Instrument

The hammered dulcimer is a stringed instrument with 31 string pairs stretched over a trapezoidal shaped sound box. Usually, the hammered dulcimer is set on a stand in front of the musician, who holds small wooden mallet hammers to strike the strings.
The dulcimer has two bridges, a bass bridge near the right and a treble bridge on the left side. The bass bridge holds up bass strings, which are played to the left of the bridge. The treble strings can be played on either side of the treble bridge, playing them on the left side gives a note a fifth higher than playing them on the right of the bridge.

The strings of a hammered dulcimer are found in pairs, two strings for each note. Each set of strings is tuned in unison and is called a course. As with a piano, the purpose of using multiple strings per course is to make the instrument louder, although as the courses are rarely in perfect unison, a chorus effect usually results like a mandolin.. 


The Content

We recorded the hammered dulcimer in two microphone positions. At the top of the instrument we placed - in a ms stereo set-up - a pair of Neumann U87s and at the bottom we put a single condenser. These two positions are covering a wide range of sound and you are free to mix them at your own requirements. We played the hammered dulcimer in minor thirds and concentrated mainly on three different articulations. Firstly we recorded the „normal" notes which means that we hit the strings with the typical small wooden mallets, we called this articulation „Mallet". Furthermore we struck the strings with a drum stick which we called „Sticks" and finally we recorded an articulation where we struck the strings with a timpani mallet and damped the strings with the palm of the hand which we named „Muted". All these articulation were recorded in 4 round robin variation and up to 4 velocity layer.

Beside this we cared most about producing the typical hammered dulcimer tremolo. Thus we equipped the instrument with two different ways to produce this roll alike tremolo. The first option to generate the tremolo will be achieved by duplicating each already played note when releasing the key. This lets you exactly control the velocity and tempo of the tremolo. The other and more easy way to produce the tremolo uses the modwheel. By turning the wheel you control the tremolo tempo from slow to fast. In order to avoid sounding too artificially we included a random factor which automatically affects the tempo and the velocity which results a very organic tremolo which lets you easy switch between single notes and tremolo rolls. Furthermore we added several functions and effects such as the control of reverb, delay, decay, distortion or octave which expands the entire sound of the hammered dulcimer and gives you a lot of options.

All in all we came out with an instrument which enriches your music with a nice and organic feel whether you used it as a solo or just as a background instrument.
