Precision Sound has released Greek Lira V2 – Kementze
The Kementze is a Turkish/Greek instrument, a three-string fiddle with a spike-shaped neck. Of Persian origin, the instrument is played with a Kaman, the Persian word for bow.
Precision Sound tells us that they bought the instrument on location in Greece, and sampled it with two versions of each chromatic articulation. They also recorded slides and some unusual scrape and scratch effects. They say that Greek Lira V2 Kementze makes it easy to access the articulations via keyswitches, and provides legato (Kontakt 3,4 & 5 version only) for more realistic playing and programming.
