This bundle features both of Soundiron's recently released Acoustic and Electric Saz libraries at a deep discount. These two libraries feature unprecedented playability and powerful custom user interfaces that allow for complete customization.

The Acoustic & Electric Saz libraries are the first truly playable virtual Turkish Guitars designed for professional composers and exotic stringed instrument junkies. They sound strikingly like guitars in certain ways, but with a very unique flavor and range of capabilities. This pair of multi-sample libraries capture the total essence of both the Acoustic and Electric saz baglâma, with a full range of sustained plucks, palm mutes and chokes, true legato slide and release behavior, hand-slaps and more, with deep round-robin sampling per articulation on each string.

Soundiron's intuitive strum, arpeggiation, gliss, legato and performance controls allow exquisitely life-like fingering and emotive real-time articulation, whether you're in the mood for intricate leads or just banging out strummed grooves and chord accompaniment in a single unified UI.

You’ll experience full control over each string, including key range, string selection, hammer-ons, pull-offs, legato and pluck type, all with key-switch support. The unrivaled live strumming and chord generation tools can handle any style of lead or rhythm playing you throw at it. Each control can be fully automated by midi and Soundiron have designed several preset types to accommodate a variety of personal work-flows and preferences.

To put it simply, these libraries not only represent the most powerful ethnic stringed instrument libraries of their kind in the world – they deliver an unprecedented breakthrough in string instrument control solutions, flexibility and pure sound quality.

Acoustic Saz

Acoustic Saz

Acoustic Saz is a truly, deeply sampled 5-string acoustic saz baglâma library for Kontakt with a huge range of extended content, an innovative new custom interface and cutting-edge powerful performance features. This beautiful fretless Saz was procured directly from the streets of Turkey, where master craftsman have been building them by hand for centuries. Soundiron painstakingly sampled all three “runs” of strings (low octave, middle single and high unison) with a massive 12x round robin and up to 6 velocity layers for open notes on an octave and a half per string. Continuing the depth are palm mutes, string chokes, release samples and a slew of percussive effects all at 12x round robin with multiple velocity layers.

Soundiron set out to make the Acoustic Saz the most realistic, playable and flexible instrument they could, expertly capturing it’s naturally beautiful sound in stunning clarity and unmatched depth. With a powerful custom interface, intelligent pluck mode, hand position, tuning, key range, chord, strum, legato, arpeggiation, effects rack and advanced custom performance technologies, the power of the real instrument is right in your hands.

Functionality
The Saz is a very expressive instrument, so Soundiron carefully sampled a wide legato, or “slide” range for all three runs of strings with multiple velocity layers and 4x round robin. The exciting new interface offers unique control over how a note is played and which string it is played on, allowing you to flip between features instantly at the push of a button. Hammer-on, pull-off, slide, choke and palm mute are all controlled on a per string (or all strings) basis, which can be momentary (as long as a key is held) or latching (turned on and off with subsequent presses of the key).

Soundiron also included an intelligent auto-strumming system called the “Strumulator”, giving you instant access to 12 different chords which automatically ensures that each note is played on the appropriate string. There are special patches for creating custom tunedpercussion blends, effects, Uberpeggiator and of course ambiences.

Each and every preset also includes a powerful Effects control panel, featuring a parametric EQ for tone shaping and our powerful exclusive Uberpeggiator system, capable of freestyle and 32-step tempo-synched humanized groove creation, sustaining rolls, chord- and key-constraint and custom arpeggiation pattern saving and loading.

Brand new to the Acoustic Saz is Soundiron´s powerful Effects Rack system. This new system gives you an elegant and intuitive interface with access to a wide range of effects including Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Dynamics, Drive (featuring 4 different effects), 2 amp sims, 8 cabs, EQ, Filter, tempo-synched Delay and convolution Reverb with a bunch of new custom impulses.

Electric Saz

Electric Saz

Electric Saz is a truly deep-sampled 5-string electric saz baglâma library for Kontakt with a huge range of extended content, an innovative new custom interface and cutting-edge powerful performance features. This beautiful fretless Saz was procured directly from the streets of Turkey, where master craftsman have been building them by hand for centuries. Soundiron painstakingly sampled all three “runs” of strings (low octave, middle single and high unison) with a massive 12x round robin and up to 6 velocity layers for open notes on an octave and a half per string. Continuing the depth are palm mutes, string chokes, release samples and a slew of percussive effects all at 12x round robin with multiple velocity layers. Custom wiring let us isolate and sample each pick-up — bridge and neck — separately and our custom user interface allows for full control (including disabling) over each pick-up.

Soundiron set out to make the Electric Saz the most realistic, playable and flexible instrument they could, expertly capturing it’s naturally beautiful sound in stunning clarity and unmatched depth. With a powerful custom interface, intelligent pluck mode, hand position, tuning, key range, chord, strum, legato, arpeggiation, effects rack and advanced custom performance technologies, the power of the real instrument is right in your hands.
