Sitar and Tanpura Drone
KONTAKT Sample Library
for Native Instruments KONTAKT,
Ableton Sampler, HALion, MachFive, DirectWave Player and
Presence XT Sampler
Sitargen KONTAKT 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.
