Electric Saz: Fretless 5 String Turkish Saz Baglâma

The “Electric Saz” is a deeply multi-sampled fretless acoustic-electric 5-string Saz Baglâma from the streets of Turkey, where master craftsman have been building them by hand for centuries.

Also included is an intelligent auto-strumming system. There are special patches for creating custom tuned percussion blends, effects, Uberpeggiator and of course ambiences.

The FX rack gives you access to Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Dynamics, Drive (featuring 4 different effects), 2 amp sims, 8 cabs, EQ, Filter, tempo-synched Delay and convolution Reverb with dozens of custom room and FX impulses.

Brad Hoyt’s Harp Guitar: 30 String Acoustic Harp Guitar

“Brad Hoyt’s Harp Guitar” is a powerful completely multi-sample based full range 30-string acoustic harp guitar library. It offers truly nuanced single-note lead line playing, chord creation, rhythm building, gliss and strum performance, all with total real-time control and automation support.

Soundiron sampled a custom-designed harp guitar commissioned by classical guitarist Brad Hoyt. This unique instrument, titled the “Arpa Viola Caipira”, is the result of a four year design and construction process with master luthier Stephen Sedgwick from the U.K, based on Brad’s concept drawings. With a massive and lush tone, wide key range, rich bass and pristine highs, it takes the entire concept of an acoustic guitar to new frontiers.

This uniquely detailed Harp Guitar library gives you deep round-robin variation, responsive dynamic layering, world-class programming, true legato, auto-strumming, chord-buidling, adaptive arpeggiation, custom tuning and tons of other deep features.

Brad Hoyt is a composer, pianist and harp guitarist who has recorded with some of the world’s leading guitarists and jazz musicians.

Content

  • 10-string acoustic guitar (5 double-courses).
  • 10-string bass harp (5 double-courses).
  • 10-string treble harp (5 double-courses).
  • Deep multi-sampling of all strings, with up to 12x round robin and up to 7 velocity layers per note

Bizarre Sitar: Lush, Full-bodied Half Size Sitar

The “Bizarre Sitar” may not seem so strange at first glance. It has most of the elements found on any other sitar, but at just over 24″ in length, however, this little beauty is barely half the size of a standard sitar. Simply being small isn’t bizarre by any means, but what is bizarre is how it can achieve such a lush, full-bodied sound while being so small. Intended as more decoration than instrument, Soundiron felt that this little guy had been highly underestimated. All this “baby” sitar needed was someone to listen closely. And they did. Very closely.

At the heart of the Bizarre Sitar library are the strumming patches. Two main strumming tunings are included, a fifth and an octave/unison. An onboard “Speed” knob (MIDI assignable and defaulted to the modwheel) allows you to sculpt the speed of the individual strum from very tight, fast strums to slower, plucky strums.

This library allows you to create realistic sounding strums by adjusting the speed in real-time. The strums are tuned and spread across the entire keyboard, providing deep, droning sounds in the low end and sharp, mandolin-like plucks in the high end.

In addition, Soundiron have also included individual string plucks for lead lines and accents. Special combo patches give you both plucks in the high end and strums in the low-end for easy playability. Also included are a number of effects (fret scrapes, mutes, etc.).

Though not traditionally bowed, there are also several bonus patches of bowed sitar: sustain, staccato, and tremolo. The tremolo patch features an “intensity” knob to adjust through three different intensity layers and a “Speed” knob to adjust the playback speed of the tremolo samples. This allows you to more closely match a specific tempo or crank it up and go crazy.

Content

  • Bowed (staccato, tremolo and sustains)
  • Plucked (10x rr, 5-6 velocities)
  • Strummed (10x rr, 4-8 velocities)
  • FX (includes mutes, scrapes and other special effects)

This library also includes a bonus collection of custom sound-designed ambiences, drones and special FX presets, custom convolution reverb impulses and an advanced Kontakt user interface with full automation support.

Note: Requires the Full Retail version of Kontakt 3.5 or later (NOT compatible with the free Kontakt Player)

  • "Electric & Acoustic Saz - The sound is great. The playability (with a little practice) fantastic. Do have a listen to the demos they are really representative of what the [Acoustic & Electric Saz] libraries can do. With the Sound Iron Saz library I not only have quite the sketch tool but also a different sounding Saz than my own, and an electric one which both will certainly find their way into my productions."

When we started talking about candidates for the guitar week Weird & Wonderful list, this was my Top Pick. [This is] Simply a stunning instrument! It has a ringing tone with a pure singing quality as the strings resonate."

  • "Electric & Acoustic Saz - The ability to blend with Western rock styles is a big plus, and when used imaginatively (excellent demos are available online), it’s capable of adding a new slant to conventional rock guitar genres. If you’re looking for new guitar sounds, these two Turkish varieties might be just the ticket. Both the acoustic and electric saz sound terrific and are fairly easy to learn and play. Whether emulating Middle Eastern styles or blending the electric with bass and drums, superb results are obtainable."
