Without a doubt, touching one of these instruments is magical. There is energy in these drums that will instantly make you move. The individual & ensemble sound instantly teleports you to a Nomadic desert setting, or to the heart of cities on the banks of the Nile or Bosporus.
This is a collection we have been craving for and it completes a palette of Ethnic sounds to seamlessly integrate with our other instruments. Extending the Sonokinetic Ethnic sampling portfolio with a brand new instrument of Middle Eastern Percussion Ensembles "Sultan Drums"
This collection spans a wide variety of Middle Eastern drums and percussion instruments. With a focus on a balanced collection we decided to offer as many performance elements as we could with multi-articulated, round robin, multi-dynamic layered sampled instruments. Each instrument that can be found in 1 of the 10 styles are extensively multi-sampled to provide you with a complete composing tool. There's much to explore in this collection. Get yourself some inspiration from the top-notch performed percussion ensemble or build your own pallet of playable drums and percussion.
Sultan Drums ships with a user friendly and dedicated interface. It's designed to work intuitively and give you quick access to this large collection of samples. As a composer you know what you need and we strive to bring it to you fast. With the philosophy of investing our resources in unique and authentic musical culture, we believe that we managed to create another one-of-a-kind with "Sultan Drums"
All performances are recorded on location in the Middle East with highly schooled, dedicated and talented percussionists. Beating any MIDI performance, a musician will always bring an extra feel to the music that just isn't possible to recreate with a computer. Therefore Sonokinetic continue to believe in loops of dedicated performance sampling combined with multi-articulated instrument sampling.
We are very proud to have been working with some of the kindest and professional people in the business on this project. And we would like to dedicate this release to them.
Sticking to our awarded multi-sampling / performance capturing concepts and teaming up with the worlds greatest musicians, recording artist, programmers, designers and scripters we are proud to present to you:
We wish you the best inspiration and creativity.
Stick around... there's much more to come.
With warm regards,
The Sonokinetic Sultan Drums Production Team
