Bizarre Sitar may not seem so strange at first glance. It has most of the elements found on any other sitar, but what is bizarre is how it can achieve such a lush, full-bodied sound while being so small.
Commonly rather seen as decoration than instrument, Soundiron felt this little guy has been highly underestimated. Although soft-spoken and possessing fewer strings than normal (5 main and 6 sympathetic), all this "baby" sitar needed was someone to listen closely. And Soundiron did. Very close.
This instrument comes packed with several controls over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more.
Soundiron has included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.
The interface is rounded-out by Soundiron's modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more.
The Reverb effect includes their favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. Soundiron has added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
