About BALKAN Ethnic Orchestra
BALKAN Ethnic Orchestra is a highly unique and fresh sounding collection giving you access to a huge amount of Eastern European soloists. Balkan Ethnic Orchestra includes everything you need to write authentic eastern european Balkan music. From expressively playable folklore instruments and the infamous balkan brass sound to an ethnic vocal quartet and solo percussion. It's all right at your fingertips.
Every instrument inside this collection was recorded with the same attention to detail than all the libraries from Strezov Sampling, featuring multiple mic positions, different short and long articulations, expressive phrases, true polyphonic legato and various ensemble sizes. Recorded at Sofia Session Studio using high-end recording equipement and the same approach towards liveliness and realism as Strezov's Next Generation Choir Series, Balkan Ethnic Orchestra provides inspiration from the roots. For a complete and detailed overview we highly recommend watching the official walkthrough video as well as checking out the manual

"Once you open up Balkan Ethnic Orchestra, you'll bring it into your palette permanently. There's plenty of characterful sounds, sometimes guttural with human imperfections, and other times precise and well recorded. Love this."
