String Zings From The Alps

String Zings From The Alps


Zithers seem to be flavour of the month at the moment. We ran a story on the Wavelore American Zither last week and now Precisionsound have released the Alpine Concert Zither sample collection for HALion Kontakt and SoundFont.
Precisionsound had this to say, “Alpine Concert Zither is a very common instrument in Alpine Europe but rarely heard nowadays in modern music. We have sampled both the open strings and the fret board strings and a lot of sound effects made by the zither.�
  • 257 24bit stereo/mono wav files divided into 3 programs and up to 3 velocity layers.
  • 3 programs for HALion/Kontakt. (24bit)
  • 3 programs for SoundFont (16bit)
All formats are included when you buy the SampleSet so you can choose to download both the 24bit Kontakt/HALion programs and the SoundFont (16bit) version if you like now or later on.
The SoundFont version is 100% compatible with EXS24, NN-XT and all other modern SoundFont compatible samplers on both PC and MAC.
Pricing and Availability:
$39.00 (+$11 if you want it on CD). More information:
