Three-String Fiddle Sampled


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.

The Greek Lira V2 Kementze features:

  • 254 stereo 24-bit WAV samples
  • Sustained, Marcato, Staccato, Tremolo, and Plucked chromatic articulations
  • Two versions of each chromatic articulation for layering
  • Slides and FX articulations
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 3-5 with scripted legato and GUI
  • 2 programs for NI Kontakt 2 with key switches from C1-F#1
  • 2 programs for Logic EXS24 with key switches from C1-F#1


The total size of the library uncompressed is 70 MB.

All formats are included when you buy Greek Lira V2 - Kementze so you can download whatever format you like or all of them.
