Soundiron has announced the release of the Electric & Acoustic Saz libraries, the first truly playable virtual Turkish Guitars designed for professional composers and exotic stringed instrument junkies.

Soundiron Electric Saz
These unique 5-stringed fretless hollow-body instruments from the streets of Turkey sound strikingly like guitars in certain ways, but with a very unique flavor and range of capabilities.

This pair of multi-sample libraries capture the total essence of both the Acoustic and Electric saz baglâma, with a full range of sustained plucks, palm mutes and chokes, true legato slide and release behavior, hand-slaps and more, with deep round-robin sampling per articulation on each string.

Our intuitive strum, arpeggiation, gliss, legato and performance controls allow exquisitely life-like fingering and emotive real-time articulation, whether you’re in the mood for intricate leads or just banging out strummed grooves and chord accompaniment in a single unified UI.

You’ll experience full control over each string, including key range, string selection, hammer-ons, pull-offs, legato and pluck type, all with key-switch support. Our unrivaled live strumming and chord generation tools can handle any style of lead or rhythm playing you throw at it. Each control can be fully automated by midi and we’ve designed several preset types to accommodate a variety of personal work-flows and preferences.

To put it simply, these libraries not only represent the most powerful ethnic stringed instrument libraries of their kind in the world – they deliver an unprecedented breakthrough in string instrument control solutions, flexibility and pure sound quality.

The sample libraries are available to purchase for the introductory price of $129 USD each through April 4th, 2013 (regular $149 USD). A bundle of both has an intro price of $199 USD (regular $229 USD).
