The reveal of my newest Pianobook instrument

Before I get into the topic of this post, I would like to take the chance to express my utmost appreciation for all the downloads, the support and feedback I’ve been receiving since the release of my first sample library (and Pianobook submission) – Deep Harp. It’s been truly overwhelming and I can’t thank you guys enough.

What’s next?

Looking to establish “Deep” as a series of free, physically modeled instruments, I recently began to develop yet another set of synth-generated sounds – all soon to be implemented in my up and coming sampling project: Deep Orient.

As suggested by the exotic title of the library, this time I decided to go in a more of an ethnic direction, trying my best to capture the raw, acoustic essence and liveliness that’s reflected in oriental string instruments.

With that thought and spirit in mind, I went on and created this very Middle Eastern-inspired virtual guitar, that has a warm (yet present) earthy tone on the low end, which gets brighter and brighter as you progress to the higher notes on the scale.

This free plugin instrument is in its final development stages. Release is set for the current month of November.

Please note: The official date and time will be determined by Pianobook.

Deep Harp 2.0

As I was going through reviews on Pianobook, I noticed that some of you have experienced functionality issues while trying to operate the library in Decent Sampler. I intend to address all of your feedback as I’m working on the new and improved version 2.0 – which I plan to put out during the next few months.

Of course, I will get into detail when it becomes more and more relevant. Until then, and as a side note, don’t forget that you can join the blog’s mailing list so you don’t miss any important update. You can do so by navigating to the Auditory1 Newsletter page.
