Add Indian Drones To Your Tracks

Originating in South India (Kerala, Tamil Nadu), but widespread also in the North, the Shruti box is a small wooden (usually teak) instrument which provides a rich drone background to support singing and other solo instruments, especially winds, like the Bansuri or the Shenai, or to practice sessions and concerts of Indian classical music. Precisionsound's Indian ShrutiBox library contains 61 24bit stereo wavfiles mapped for Kontakt, HALion & EXS24 (all versions). A 16bit SoundFont version is included for users of other sampleplayers like Reason NN-XT, Dimension, Sfz player etc. You also get 2 long chord drones, 5 and 10 minute long that could be placed as audiotracks in your DAW of choice. All notes of the Shruti box has been sampled for many minutes and cut in 4 variations.
  • ShrutiBox 1 has the natural attack and looped
  • Shrutibox 2 is a cut out of the long note/drone looped
  • Shrutibox 3 another portion of the note/drone looped
  • Shrutibox 4 the note/drone fading out, not looped
  • Shrutibox Pumpnoise A selection of pumpnoises
The Kontakt and HALion format has some extra programs like 2 Menu programs with all versions of the drones and noises together but with smaller tone range and a Mix program with 3 drones in unison mix.
