Introducing ORIGINS VOL 4: OUD & QANUN, the latest instalment in Sonuscore's critically-acclaimed 'Origins' series of ethnic tools.

As with all Origins libraries, you can play both instruments independently or in beautiful concord via the build-in Multi-Arpeggio-Designer (MAD). Choose from numerous tasteful patterns and presets that will kickstart your own creative journey with the instrument and drive your inspiration forward.

Designed with a focus on user friendliness to facilitate an expedient workflow, OUD & QANUN is an excellent companion in the quest for authentic, fresh and captivating musical experiences.

As always, the ability to play both instruments interlocking, independently, with inspiring patterns as well as single notes, chords and rhythms on the fly with full customisation options will help you keep an expedient workflow as well as achieve truly unique results.

Key Features

    •    Two individually playable instruments
    •    Innovative Multi-Arpeggio-Designer (MAD)
    •    90 rhythm presets
    •    12 unique color settings
    •    Full customization of all controls


The Qanun (قانون), a renowned Arabian relative of the Zither, is famous for its unique, melodramatic sound.
The Oud (عود: literally “wood”) has been the key instrument across Middle Eastern and North African traditional and popular music for centuries, even millenniums in its region of origin. This forerunner of the European Lute impresses with its signature sound, enjoys the spotlight in your mix and pairs splendidly with the Qanun.


The Multi-Arpeggio-Designer is the centrepiece of every „Origins“-instrument. Two fully customizable arpeggiators create interlocking patterns and broad soundscapes by combining the unique timbres of the two instruments. The engine is designed to convey a musically meaningful, human performance, instead of a computer randomly aligning notes.
Load up one of 100+ inspiring presets or create your own arpeggios in as much detail as you like. The MAD provides a variety of different features and controls to realise your musical vision.


You created your own ingenious arpeggio design and want to use it with another ORIGINS product? Simply copy and paste your design to use it on-the-fly in any other instrument of the ORIGINS series.


The 12 individual colour-presets provide even more possibilities to sculpt your sound. All colours are radically different in character and incorporate various effect settings and multiple impulse responses. While each MAD-Preset has an assigned colour preset, you can combine everything at will, resulting in over 1200 predefined combinations.

Press Quotes

"The latest Origins library recreates its titular Middle Eastern string instruments for dual or solo play. The Multi Arpeggiator Designer enables expressive arpeggios and cross-rhythmic sequences to be programmed easily, while the 12 colour presets set up the onboard effects to transform the sound - though, oddly, you can't save your own. Great for its 'realistic' emulation, but the magic lies in its sound design potential." - Computer Music
