The Electric Saz is a truly deep-sampled 5-string electric saz baglâma library for Kontakt with a huge range of extended content, an innovative custom interface and cutting-edge 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. Custom wiring let isolate and sample each pick-up -- bridge and neck - separately and the custom user interface allows for full control (including disabling) over each pick-up.
Soundiron set out to make the Electric Saz the most realistic, playable and flexible instrument they could, expertly capturing it’s naturally beautiful sound in stunning clarity and unmatched depth. With a powerful custom interface, intelligent pluck mode, hand position, tuning, key range, chord, strum, legato, arpeggiation, effects rack and advanced custom performance technologies, Soundiron put the power of the real instrument right in your hands.
They carefully sampled a wide legato, or “slide” range for all three runs of strings with multiple velocity layers and 4x round robin. The exciting 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).
Soundiron also included an intelligent auto-strumming system called the “Strumulator”, 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 integrated Rack Effects panel gives you an intuitive interface to access a wide range of built-in 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 Electric Saz includes an innovative interface for amazing control:
