Sonica Instruments - SHAKUHACHI (KONTAKT) - Full Version

Shakuhachi, the third installment of the Japanese Virtuoso series, is now available as a software instrument in Kontakt format. Singing resonant intonation, deep yet delicate breathing, and Japanese sonic aesthetics permeating the periphery: the shakuhachi - an instrument symbolizing Japan - finally joins the Virtuoso Japanese Series. Rei Jin played shakuhachi for sampling. He gave us a whole kaleidoscope of bamboo instrument sounds - from soft, sweet long tones to the most bombastic sounds - that only the most experienced player can produce. In the studio, we used meticulous mic tuning along with high quality, uncolored mic preamps to ensure we got the instrument's true voice. And in order to recreate the liveliness of the techniques of a special game, it took the development of special mechanisms and articulation interfaces. Key Trigger Connection allows the performer to switch playing methods on the fly without interrupting the sound. As a wind instrument, the shakuhachi is played from time to time in a variety of techniques while maintaining the same sound: for example, from a direct tone to yuri (vibrato), and then from yuri to a strong and loud blast of air. We developed the Key Trigger Connection mechanism from the ground up to replicate this typical approach to shakuhachi performance. Key Trigger Connection allows you to seamlessly connect articulations by simply pressing assigned keys while playing. Connected articulations include various techniques of yuri, sforzando, muraiki (breathing), uchi and oshi fingering, and tamai (tongue trill). You can connect as many articulations as you like while holding the base note for a live instrument feel. Blast control. This mechanism allows the performer with a controller to manipulate the duration from the initial breathing noise to any sound being made to the full power of the note. This control makes you play the keyboard like a wind controller, giving you access to fluid, dynamic breathing expressions despite being sample-based. When playing legato, this function automatically generates the alternating legato that is required for the shakuhachi. Atari legato recreates a unique fingering technique that makes the pitch jump out at the moment the note changes. The Oshi and uchi function allows the performer to add quick fingerings as desired during the exploding note for accents or tremolo effects. The library contains almost every possible shakuhachi articulation, including vertical and horizontal yuri and other vibrato techniques, sforzando, many expressions of Murai breathing, tamae trills, korokoro, karakara and other sound effect techniques, as well as improvisations based on short scales. Each chromatic pitch across the entire register can be adjusted individually. This allows you to access the traditional scales and keys of Japanese music and “feel” unique to a particular artist. And of course, pitch settings can be saved and loaded.
