Precisionsound Ukrainian Bandura

Precisionsound has announced the release of Ukrainian Bandura, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.

The Bandura is the national instrument of Ukraine. We have sampled a 55-string Bandura made by the Chernihiv factory in the -1980ties. Playing styles included in the library are:

  • Solo (4 velocity layers, 6 round robin layers)
  • Trio ( 4 velocity layers 2 round robin layers, based upon the same samples as “Solo” with 3 samples per note)
  • FX1-3 (178 sound effects created with the instrument)

The tonal range of the instrument is A0-D#5, mapped from A1-D#6 in the keyboard.

All samples were recorded at 24 bits, and 44.1 Sample rate.

The SampleSet contains 1315 mono WAV samples mapped as 9 programs for Kontakt 2 and above, 1 scripted program for Kontakt v.3-5, and 10 programs for EXS24. The total size of the library uncompressed is 2GB.

The sample library is available to purchase for $69 USD as a download (includes all formats). It is also available on DVD for $80 USD.
