Taleweaver Orchestra has launched Ancient Madame, a virtual Hurdy Gurdy instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.
The Hurdy Gurdy is an instrument that is older than thousand years. With its absolutely unique sound it is well known as a medieval instrument that is still often being played on medieval events. Taleweaver Orchestra took it upon himself to capture the smoky voice of this wonderful French Lady and make it ready for your own musical creations. I think the “Ancient Madame” has become a precious asset of the “Ancient Series”.
The library includes high quality recordings in 48 kHz / 24 bit wave format arranged in three and a half octaves. The first octave contains the drone sounds and the others the lead voices. You can choose between several high and low G or D drones or even use them both at the same time. It is possible to set the volume of the drones in separation to the lead voice. You can also adjust the volume of the key sounds. Every lead tone consists of three round robins.
The Ancient Madame library is available to purchase for 9.99 EUR. Requires Kontakt 188.8.131.5282 or above, full version.
