Announcing Balkan Ethnic Orchestra

13 Sep

Today we are proud to announce our next project Balkan Ethnic Orchestra. This highly unique and fresh sounding collection gives you access to a huge amount of Eastern European instruments. Balkan Ethnic Orchestra includes everything you need to write authentic eastern european music. From expressively playable folklore instruments and the infamous balkan brass sound to an ethnic vocal quartet and solo percussion. It's all right at your fingertips.

Every instrument is sampled with the same attention to detail than our other libraries. Recorded at Sofia Session Studio using high-end recording equipement and the same approach towards liveliness and realism as our Next Generation Choir Series, Balkan Ethnic Orchestra provides inspiration from the roots.
