KONTAKT - 5,26 GB
Shakuhachi, the third release in the Virtuoso Japanese Series, is now available as a software instrument in Kontakt format.
Singing sonorous intonation, deep yet delicate breathing, and a Japanese sound aesthetic spilling into the periphery: The shakuhachi - an instrument symbolic of Japan - finally joins the Virtuoso Japanese Series family.

Main Features:
- Precisely captures the scintillating sounds of a veteran shakuhachi player, covering every playing technique and recorded with exacting attention to detail at every musical interval
- Features performance mechanisms designed specifically for this library to recreate the full dynamics of this wind instrument, from the softest sound to the most emphatic pitch
- The unique Key Trigger Connection function lets the performer move through a colorful assortment of articulations without ever interrupting the sound
- Legato and grace note controls reproduce complex fingering techniques such as atari, uchi, and oshi.
- The blow control function lets the performer manipulate the duration from the breath noise to the actual tone with either a controller
- The expression control varies the tone color naturally and continuously without gradations
- A hybrid combination of the shakuhachi (1.8 shakuhachi) and the 2.3 shakuhachi provides a wider register, including lower tones, and more tone color variations
- Create traditional shakuhachi pitch scales, as well as performer-specific pitch scales, with the Scale Tuning function, which provides individual note adjustment over G2 to B5
- Five phrase banks contain a wide array of essential shakuhachi phrases
- Lively powerful sounds sampled in full 24 bit 96 kHz fidelity (the library itself contains 24 bit 44.1 kHz samples)
- Create your own mixes with the multi-microphone samples and a dedicated mixer with individual controls for Direct, Overhead, Room, and Stereo Mix

Yeah. From Peter Gabriel's "Sledge Hammer" and what seemed like every Kung-Fu video game back in the 80's, early 90's. They couldn't get enough of that emulator Shakuhachi phrase. LOL

Nice instrument to actually learn and play for real. I remember thinking, it would be so similar to playing flute or recorder, I'd just jump right in and play it. I was surprised how tricky the embouchure was to form at first. It could leave your head spinning, literally. You use a lot of air playing this instrument. LOL Fortunately, the seller was a friggin' Shakuhachi Zen Guru, who helped me get it going. Lots of fun after that.
