Electric Saz - Deeply Sampled Electric-Acoustic Turkish Guitar for Kontakt

The Electric Saz is a deeply multi-sampled fretless acoustic-electric 5-string Saz Baglâma from the streets of Turkey, where master craftsman have been building them by hand for centuries. This modern evolution of the instrument was recorded through a custom array of pick-ups.

We painstakingly sampled all three string runs (low octave, middle and high unison) with 12x round robin and up to 6 velocity layers for open notes going up 1.5 octaves per string. We also captured palm mutes, string chokes, releases and tons of percussive effects.

We carefully sampled a wide legato, or “slide” range for all three runs of strings with multiple velocity layers and 4x round robin. the Saz interface offers full control over how a note is played and which string it is played on. Hammer-on, pull-off, slide, choke and palm mute are all controlled per-string.

We’ve also included an intelligent auto-strumming system. There are special patches for creating custom tunedpercussion blends, effects, Uberpeggiator and of course ambiences. It also has a dynamic and adaptive arpeggiation system, capable of freestyle and 32-step tempo-synched humanized groove creation and chord/key constraint. 

The FX rack gives you access to Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Dynamics, Drive (featuring 4 different effects), 2 amp sims, 8 cabs, EQ, Filter, tempo-synched Delay and convolution Reverb with dozens of custom room and FX impulses.
