  • Empower Your Compositions with Authentic Medieval Phrases.
    [Note: This product requires a FULL version of Native Instruments’ KONTAKT or Steinbergs free HALion Sonic]

    Embark on a journey through time with the latest addition to the MEDIEVAL PHRASES series: FIDDLE & NYCKELHARPA. With the Fiddle, with its rich and expressive tones, coupled with the Nyckelharpa’s distinctive resonant strings, we invite you to capture the mood of medieval times. Composers and producers can now use dramatic live performances by outstanding performers or freely play their instruments with varied articulations.

    Imagine the bustling markets and vibrant festivals of late medieval Europe, where the rhythm and bounce of the Fiddle & Nyckelharpa set feet tapping and light the hearts of weary travelers. These instruments were the lifeblood of celebration, often heard at markets and taverns above the chatter of merchants and the laughter of children. Their history is woven through countless generations, where they not only provided entertainment but also served as a cultural heartbeat during times of both hardship and prosperity.

    MEDIEVAL PHRASES FIDDLE & NYCKLEHARPA carry within tales of the past, each string resonating with stories untold. The Fiddle’s bow dances across strings to produce a vibrant, rhythmic melody, while the Nyckelharpa’s keyed fiddle design adds an otherworldly depth. These sounds, once echoing through medieval tavern halls and open markets, are now crisply captured for the modern composer. With MEDIEVAL PHRASES, breathe new life into your medieval compositions, delivering an authentic experience that is both profound and exhilarating.

  • Introducing SONUSCORE’s CELESTIAL HARP

    Where words fail, music gains its power. The magical fairytale pulls of our Celtic harp transport the listener to magical worlds in heavenly places.

    A Celtic harp with a divinely inspired sound, CELESTIAL HARP has a unique tone that is warm and soft in its plucks, but lush and enveloping with its full strums. It is perfect to transport your listeners to fantasy worlds and ancient settings, especially when paired with the particle power of our Glow slider, which transmutes the sound into an incredible, soothing, and airy pad. Control the particle effect further by adjusting speed and dynamic range.

    Recorded with 5 round robins, it also includes the flageolet technique to create a Harmonic layer. The Natural and Harmonic layers can be balanced to your preference, adjusting between a natural pluck and one with more shimmer. The 10 presets included are crafted to take full advantage of both the natural harp tones and the full ethereal pad effect of the Glow slider.

    The Celtic harp is much smaller and more compact than a classical harp like HA•PI. Because of its size, it’s more commonly used in folk and traditional music, as well as in taverns and at Elven festivities.

  • THE SPIRITUAL SOUNDS OF THE VOICE

    Invoke the old magic with these mysterious voices from beyond. These otherworldly calls will deliver you into strange and unknown places, enticing your primordial inner self to break your compositions free from all inhibitions.

    For the MONGOLIAN VOICES – ANCIENT PHRASES library, we tapped into the shamanic sounds of traditional Mongolian singing. Divided into three categories, Female, Male, and Throat, the library delves into the more mystical places of vocalizations. The Female and Male parts are based on the traditional long song, or Urtiin duu, a most ancient art loudly sung from the mountaintops, each long, drawn-out syllable evoking the deep, vast, open spaces of the Mongolian steppe.

    Then there’s the famous throat singing – the Mongol Khoomei – which relies on guttural vibrations and circular breathing, creating a completely alien, otherworldly sound. At first listen, it inspires visions of far out sci-fi/fantasy worlds or ancient religions.

    MONGOLIAN VOICES – ANCIENT PHRASES is the perfect vocal instrument to add a raw, esoteric flavor to your music.

  • CAPTURING THAT HOLLYWOOD TRAILER SOUND

    Have you heard about this little secret that successful soundtrack composers often use? About every one of them has this little folder stashed away that contains nothing but a selection of their favorite .wav sounds.

    It might sound banal, but it actually is one of the fast lanes to that epic Hollywood sound: a folder hidden away full of pre-designed sound material, like cinematic hits or whooshes. When needed, they can be placed directly into the DAW and enhance your music with that big cinematic vibe.

    For this first edition, TRAILER SOUNDS VOLUME 1: CINEMATIC HITS, we’ve compiled 150 jaw-dropping, bass-pounding cinematic booms, hits, and whoosh hits with our friends from the world-famous BOOM Library. You’ll never have to search for fat, cinematic hits or whoosh hits in various software instruments again. Just do like many successful soundtrack composers do: keep them all in one folder, drag & drop into your DAW, and done!

    The deep sonority of the Contrabass Panduri perfectly complements the twangy drones of the Tanbur. Though the two instruments come from neighboring regions, the Contrabass Panduri is so rare that this excellent pairing has perhaps never occurred. Until now.

    THE INSTRUMENTS
    Contrabass Panduri
    A modern innovation, the Contrabass Panduri was modified from the traditional Panduri to answer the need Georgians had for a low-registry instrument for concert folk performances. It’s a true rarity of an instrument with perhaps only 10 existing in the country of Georgia itself.

    Tanbur
    The Tanbur is an ancient Middle-Eastern, long-necked lute-like instrument whose drones and picks have graced musical tradition from the Balkans, Turkey, and Arabia to Persia, India, and Central Asia. It goes by as many names as countries that claim it in their traditions, and is a definite classic instrument to add that “Eastern” sound.

    Two similar, but different, instruments that reach around the globe in their origins. Bouzouki from the Aegean and Ronroco from Latin America reach across the seas to come together. The metallic sounds of the Bouzouki with the pastoral nature of the Ronroco ignite a beautiful, yet disparate timbre.

    THE INSTRUMENTS
    Ronroco

    The aggressive strums of this Andean instrument recollect the vast, indomitable landscapes of Patagonia and beyond. Larger than a charango, the Ronroco is double stringed, unique in that the higher pairs double in unison while the lowers double in octaves, creating a mystical, otherworldly sound.

    Bouzouki

    The long-necked, metal-stringed style of lute known as the modern Bouzouki was developed in Greece in the early 1910s. The locals modified it to handle steel strings, endowing it with its trademark twangy sound.

  • SOUNDS OF KNIGHTS AND TAVERNS

    Our first phrase library focusing on plucked instruments, MEDIEVAL PHRASES LUTE & THEORBO brings you into a world of classic imagination, booming with bards and taverns, questing knights, and roving robber barons and bandits.

    In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the bards in courts and taverns constantly needed new ways to inspire their audiences. People looked back to the ancients for their inspiration, whether in science or medicine, or in music. The Ancient Greeks tapped into the divine in their epic recitations accompanied by the lyre and kithara. It was only natural that during the late medieval times – when all things ancient were coming into fashion again – that the lute and theorbo would take a centerpiece.

    Our MEDIEVAL PHRASES LUTE & THEORBO brings back that flair of medieval castles and the inspiring spirit of the Renaissance, transporting you to rustic pubs and medieval markets, from Homer’s epics to the court of the Medicis. The light, heavenly plucks of the lute are richly accented by the deep voice of the theorbo, perfect for period pieces, experimental music, or ambient dwellings.

    Libraries from Sonuscore are covered by a special EULA - read it here.
  • Two string instruments that form the basis for Portuguese and Latin American music, the fado guitar and cavaquinho especially are also featured in styles across the world. They form a beautiful and compelling pair for the ORIGINS VOL. 8 ethnic string plugin. The cheerful strums of the cavaquinho make for the perfect bed upon which lies the soulful melodies of the fado guitar.

    THE INSTRUMENTS

    Fado Guitar
    Traditionally performed in the dark city squares of Coimbra and Lisbon, fado is always accompanied by the metallic plucks and graceful slides of this special and timeless lute guitar. Also known as the Portuguese guitar, it has twelve steel strings set in pairs. With roots in old medieval music, it was played by troubadours and wandering musicians alike, spreading to the theater and taverns alike and now used not only in Portugal but across South America.

    Cavaquinho
    Cavaquinho is the mother of a whole family of smaller-sized strumming instruments. It brought to the world the ukulele, and still serves as the primary bringer of joy and rhythm in songs across Latin America, especially in Brazil and Venezuela and very important in samba and choro music. It was introduced to Brazil by the Portuguese, and from there reached across the world, becoming a treasure in island cultures from Cape Verde to Hawaii.
