SOUNDWARE: Temple Sitar. Sitar Soundfont (.sf2) and Zampler Patches.


Temple Sitar Soundfont and Zampler Patches. 

Add some of the 'mystical East' to your songs.

Great thing about the Sitar is that it crosses all musical genre borders. From 'classical' Indian and pop, and Bollywood through to Western Rock, indie, and pop, you'll find sitars adding some Eastern mystical spice. 

The other great thing about the Sitar is it's so great for all kinds of effects processing. You can do almost anything to it and it sounds great. Bit like electric guitar. Reverb, delay, phasing, chorus, and flanging. You can even throw some tube distortion an overdrive at one and it still sounds great! 

Here's a short demo track/snippets:

Temple Sitar Download Link. 

So here's the download link. Just download the entire folder to your hard drive then use Zampler's 'load patch' function to navigate to the folder. Then load and audition your required patch. 

A .sf2 Sounfont file is also included within the package. This can be used with Reason's NN-XT or Bitwig's Sampler instruments. You will also find this within the folder, although the following link will give you just the .sf2 soundfont file if you don't want the Zampler patches, 

Patches for Bitwig and Reason NN-XT are in development, I'll post these as soon as they are complete. 
My Facebook Page will update you when they are ready, so perhaps consider following me there.

  1. Thanks and these samples sound very good!

    I got the soundfont version running in Reason's NNXT although the patches opened with a "Missing Samples" message and I had to guide the NNXT browser to the samples folder to find the samples for each preset and resave them so NNXT won't be confused next time, which was not a problem.

    I noticed the samples themselves are the same for each preset and the NNXT's settings also appear the same for each preset - so how do the sounds for each preset sound so different?

    You must have your presets differences saved as part of each patch in a manner invisible to the user; right?

    I've never tried to make an instrument like this so am curious.

    Regardless, thank you again and it sounds great!
