Sonic Zest has introduced its latest Kontakt instrument library Rubab, featuring the sounds of a deep-sampled ancient lute originating from Afghanistan.

It is carved out of a single piece of wood, with its hollow bowl providing the sound chamber.

We recorded the full range of a beautiful 13-string instrument and have programmed it into this highly playable Kontakt instrument. The Rubab would be perfect for any composer looking to produce film or TV music in need of a mystic and ancient sound.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher, Rubab is priced $16 USD.
