Precisionsound has announced the release of Persian Daf, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.
The Persian Daf is a large handmade frame drum with a goatskin membrane and metal ringlets. Used traditionally for complex rhythms in chanting rituals, the Daf is capable of both sonorous hits and rattle-like textures.
Precisionsound recorded all kinds of sounds you would expect from the instrument: dums, teks, snaps, stopped hits, chains, rolls and scratches.
Persian Daf features
- 123 unique hits, rolls, scratches and shakes.
- 4 round robins and 4 velocity layers for all skin hits.
- 618 stereo 24-bit WAV samples.
- 1 program for NI Kontakt 3+ with scripted performance controls and GUI.
- 1 program for NI Kontakt 2.
- 1 program for Logic EXS24.
- All formats are included.
The sample library is available for purchase for $29 USD. A DVD version costs an additional $9.95 USD. Full version of Kontakt is required, this library does not work with the free Kontakt Player.
