8Dio unveils Qanun sample library for Kontakt
8Dio is exploring Middle Eastern instrument and is about to release Qanun, a new sample library for Kontakt.
The Qanun is a plucked string instrument in the zither family that features a trapezoid soundboard and is used in Middel East, North Africa and West Asia music.
8Dio recorded the instrument with 4 microphone positions (contact mics, close, semi-close and room) with multiple playing techniques. You’ll be able to use multiple attack and percussion for each finger position/technique (thumb, pick, pick on bridge, pizzicato and more) as well as rising and falling pegged bends (semi-note or whole note), tremolo, vibrato, harmonics effects and more.
The 23,000+ sample library for Kontakt also includes a new micro-tuner so you can make full use of the middle-eastern scales with the instrument.
Here’s the first video presentation, Qanun for Kontakt is expected soon at 8dio.com:
