Sitargen EXS24 is a sample library designed to
emulate the acoustic Indian Sitar as well as
the Electric Sitar. Additionally it includes
the Tanpura, a continuous harmonic drone in
support of a melody.
Tanpura Drones (A-B-C-D-E-F-G): The Indian drone instrument
does not play melody but rather supports and sustains the
melody of another instrument or singer by providing a
continuous harmonic drone. The Tanpura is an essential
accompanying instrument which provides a point of reference
for creating other sounds; musicians or singers can freely
improvise over the drone. Alternatively, by modulating
different parameters like ADSR, Reverb and/or filter, it
also can mimic the 'Digital Electronic Tanpura'.
Electric Sitar preset is a kind of
electric guitar designed to mimic the sound of the sitar. It is
typically used in rock, jazz, and fusion styles.
The EXS24 mkII sample library version can be used on

It has been
meticulously tuned and adjusted and particular care has been
taken in the reproduction of the original realism of Sitargen.
