National Instrument Of Ukraine Sampled

The Bandura is the national instrument of Ukraine, and Precisionsound tells us that they have sampled a 55-string Bandura made by the Chernihiv factory in the 1980s. Playing styles included in the library are:

  • Solo (4 velocity layers, 6 round robin layers)
  • Trio ( 4 velocity layers 2 round robin layers, based upon the same samples as "Solo" with 3 samples per note)
  • FX1-3 (178 sound effects created with the instrument)

The tonal range of the instrument is A0-D#5, mapped from A1-D#6 in the keyboard.

All samples were recorded at 24 bits, and 44.1 Sample rate.

The SampleSet contains 1315 mono WAV samples mapped as 9 programs for Kontakt 2 and above, 1 scripted program for Kontakt v.3-5, and 10 programs for EXS24. The total size of the library uncompressed is 2GB.

All formats are included when you buy Ukrainian Bandura so you can download whatever format you like or all of them.

Full version of Kontakt is required, this library does NOT work with the free Kontakt Player!
