Acoustic Saz is a truly, deeply sampled 5-string acoustic saz baglâma library for Kontakt with a huge range of extended content, an innovative custom interface and cutting-edge powerful performance features. Soundiron painstakingly sampled all three “runs” of strings (low octave, middle single and high unison) with a massive 12x round robin and up to 6 velocity layers for open notes on an octave and a half per string. Continuing the depth are palm mutes, string chokes, release samples and a slew of percussive effects all at 12x round robin with multiple velocity layers.
The Saz is a very expressive instrument, so Soundiron carefully sampled a wide legato, or “slide” range for all three runs of strings with multiple velocity layers and 4x round robin. The interface offers unique control over how a note is played and which string it is played on, allowing you to flip between features instantly at the push of a button. Hammer-on, pull-off, slide, choke and palm mute are all controlled on a per string (or all strings) basis, which can be momentary (as long as a key is held) or latching (turned on and off with subsequent presses of the key).
An intelligent auto-strumming system called the “Strumulator”, is giving you instant access to 12 different chords which automatically ensures that each note is played on the appropriate string. There are special patches for creating custom tunedpercussion blends, effects, Uberpeggiator and of course ambiences.
Each and every preset also includes a powerful Effects control panel, featuring a parametric EQ for tone shaping and our powerful exclusive Uberpeggiator system, capable of freestyle and 32-step tempo-synched humanized groove creation, sustaining rolls, chord- and key-constraint and custom arpeggiation pattern saving and loading.
The Acoustic Saz also features a powerful Effects Rack system, giving you an elegant and intuitive interface with access to a wide range of effects including Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Dynamics, Drive (featuring 4 different effects), 2 amp sims, 8 cabs, EQ, Filter, tempo-synched Delay and convolution Reverb with a bunch of new custom impulses.
The Acoustic Saz includes an innovative interface for amazing control:
