    Shakuhachi free sample library by Samplephonics released


    Samplephonics has announced the release of Shakuhachi, a new freebie featuring a sampled shakuhachi Japanese ethnic instrument.

    The Shakuhachi is a bamboo flute with a distinctive warm body and thick harmonic character. This Japanese ethnic instrument is well-known due to its intensive use in modern film scores.

    Handy tip – layer up the static sustained notes with a staccato articulation, delay the static track by 50-100ms and allow the classic Shakuhachi articulations to shine through and add character!

    Choose from a number of articulations and play around with the pitch to get monstrous sounding organs and pads!

    Audio demo:

    Shakuhachi library is available as WAV files and come pre mapped into Ableton Sampler, Kontakt, EXS24, Mach-5, SFZ, Halion and Reason NN-XT, each with 4 articulations and multiple round robins and velocities.

    In order to download it, registration at Samplephonics is required. Download size is 125MB compressed.
