Greeks On The Fiddle



Precisionsound have released Greek Lira - a sample set for HALion and NI Kontakt.
The Lira (kemance) is a traditional Greek instrument used in Mediterranean folk music. A small 3 stringed instrument played with a bow and with a quiet limited tonal range.
Precisionsound told us, “We decided to sample the Lira in a way that makes it more like a universal ‘ethno violin’, the articulations represented in this SampleSet are more ‘over the top’ than the actual instrument is used for traditionally. For example; pizzicato and staccato playing is not, traditionally often or at all, played with this type of instrument.�
The articulations are:
  • Regular unlooped notes
  • Legato unlooped notes
  • Staccato
  • Pizzicato
  • Tremolo
  • Glides
  • Effects
The Sample Set contains 254 24bit WAV files divided into 28 programs for NI Kontakt and 25 programs for HALion.
Pricing and Availability:
    Greek Lira costs $49 (+$11 if you want it on CD)
