EarthMomenths has recently released Shruti Box, a free sound library for Ableton Live.
A Shruti Box is a small hand-pumped wooden instrument that provides a rich drone background as support to singing or playing almost any instrument.
The use of the Shruti Box has widened with the cross-cultural influences of world music and new age music, providing a drone for many other instruments not typically associated with it.
While normally it has been associated with Indian Music, the Shruti box is enjoying a renaissance in the West amongst traditional and contemporary musicians who are using it for a range of different styles.
We have captured an organic wooden shruti at 96kHz using tube mics and preamps.
The library is available to download at no cost at EarthMoments.
