PrecisionSound has released a new sample library, Indian Harmonium.
The Harmonium is an essential part of Indian music and could be described as a hybrid of an accordion and a pump organ. The characteristic sound can be heard in most Indian folk music and in contemporary music influenced by the “sound of India”.
The SampleSet contains 228 stereo 24bit wav files divided into 8 programs each for the HALion & Kontakt versions and 7 programs for SoundFont. The HALion & Kontakt programs has separated key sounds for the attack and release samples incorporated in the programs while the SoundFont version has these samples in separated programs.
Two special programs with bordunes, sound effects and pump sounds adds to the realism of the Indian Harmonium.
Indian Harmonium costs $39 (+$11 if you want it on CD).
More information and demos are available at the PrecisionSound site.
