Ethnic / World Instruments

Bansuri Flute – 0.8GB of authentic traditional Indian Flute with True Legato

The Bansuri is an traditional, ancient Indian flute. Get that fantastic, well known and loved ethnic sound in your scores/soundtracks!

Featuring true legato interval playing, Aria Sounds have sampled this instrument extensively with a wide variety of expressional playing including the following articulations:

  • Vibrato
  • No Vibrato
  • Different types of turn
  • FP (loud – sudden quiet)
  • Accelerating Vibrato
  • Airy Soft vs Harder Attacks.

Due to the fact that the real Bansuri does not play chromacitally (all notes), Aria Sounds have artificially filled these notes in so you can now play it in any key for the convenience of your music. The range of the instrument is two octaves, starting from middle C going up.

Xiao Flute – A Traditional Chinese Bamboo Flute (0.6GB)!

The Xiao is a ancient traditional Chinese, end-blown bamboo flute, also known as the dòngxiao. Aria Sounds have sampled this instrument with true legato intervals all the way up to the octave, and, like the bansuri, have artificially filled in the notes which actually are not possible to play on the instrument physically. With this instrument, you can play it in any key, as you would any other VST instrument on the keyboard, without worrying about which notes are possible etc

There are multiple keyswitches, arranged so you can choose the first note of a phrase, and alter the expression of notes throughout a phrase as you play, allowing for an extremely human like sound. The possible expressions include the following:

  • Builds
  • From Above
  • Turn
  • FP (loud – sudden quiet)
  • Mordent
  • Normal

The expression wheel can also be used to control dynamics.

The range of the instrument is two octaves, starting from Eb above middle C working up.

Note: Libraries require the Full Retail version of Kontakt 4 or above (NOT compatible with free Kontakt Player)

Celtic Harp – A Highly Expressive Traditional Celtic Harp

A traditional, folk instrument, that is usually outside the realms of standard classical music. This was sampled in a completely different room to Aria Sounds’ other instruments. They chose a location that would compliment and retain the instrument’s warth of tone.

This instrument comes complete with the following features:

  • 3 Dynamic levels
  • Up to 9 variations per note
  • Velocity mapped dynamics

Created with a harp recorded in a very warm and soft sounding room, this VST instrument has a much more intimite and pleasing sound. It has also been recorded in such a way that it can easily be applied to all sorts of mixes and styles of music and fit wonderfully with other instruments, reverb etc.

Note: Requires the Full Retail version of Kontakt 5 or above (NOT compatible with free Kontakt Player)

Pianos, Organs and Keys

Silk Piano – A Sampled Fazioli Concert Grand Piano (6GB)

The Fazioli is one of the most sought after and prestigious pianos in the world, with an absolutely unique sound, and the most beautiful crystal-clear low end.

Aria Sounds aimed to capture both this, and the rest of the amazing range of sound the piano has to offer, making sure to also record it’s enourmous dynamic range as well.

This extensively sampled instrument comes with the following features:

  • Up to 76 velocity layers per note (average of 35 velocity layers per note)
  • Close and Stage mic positions
  • 24bit/96khz Samples

Silk is an exquisite example of a concert grand Fazioli piano, captured in all it’s sonic glory!

Pipe Organ – A Magnificent Huge Church Organ (2GB)!

This is the one instrument where you can virtually pull out all the stops in the interface, choosing between a fantastic selection of stops, combinations and tuttis. Ranges of each stop will be shown on the keyboard when activated, pedals low, and manuals higher, plus optional octave extention controls, just like on a real organ.

This incredible instrument comes with all the stops and sounds listed below:

There is also the option to reduce/extend the length of the release samples, depending on whether you want that huge grand organ sound in a large space, or a cleaner more crisp and defined sound.

Aria chose to also sample some optional combinations and tutti sounds, as well as individual stops, due to the fact that the way sound interacts and moves around in a room when the stops are pulled out together, is not faithfully enough replicated when individually sampled and layered digitally.

Hybrichord – Sounds that you’d never imagine could come out of a piano… (4.3GB)

Hybrichord is Aria Sounds’ first exploration into what they can really get out of a normal piano, and the initial results are fantastic. Using various means of getting the instrument to vibrate, including wiring the instrument up, using magnets, electric current, etc, they managed to create some fantastic organic sounding sonic landscapes.

Of course, Aria have also included a variety of more well known experimental techniques, including:

  • Picks
  • Plucks
  • Bows
  • Hammers
  • Drumming
  • Screws in the strings

The user interface has controls to allow you to shape and sculpt some of the sound to your liking for use in your music and all samples were recorded as 24bit/96Khz wav files.

    You can never have enough strings, and then, there’s the other stuff—some nice other stuff. Three items are actually included in this bundle that aren’t even listed. Since the flutes are supplied as part of the Ethnic Flute Bundle, the Bolivian Pan Flute, otherwise unavailable for separate purchase, is included. You also get the Classical Guitarist and the London Symphony Brass French Horns. This means you get everything on the Aria Sounds website except the Aurora Choir. Regarding the strings: Five string sections and four solo instruments, each with their own articulations and GUI/control, allow for great flexibility is sculpting your string sounds.
