    Exclamation Rare Instruments 2 and microtuning poll

    We are beta testing Rare 2 next week and will be releasing the library at NAMM. We are currently messing with creating alternate tuning presets for use in Kompakt, Kontakt. What are your favorite ethnic tunings? Also I am looking for more Arabic/Indian/Eastern tuning charts (in cents). Oh and we added the Oud.

    Nick! You added the Oud? Thank you very much. Just shows that sometimes it pays to ask for what you want.

    That's fantastic, sign me up.

    BTW, how do you deal with an instrument that has no frets and does all of those quarter tone embellishments etc.? It's not really like a classic violin which sticks to the western scales (for the most part) and doesn't get too far out of hand.

    I think microtuning is a cool idea. Can't wait to hear the Sarangi .
    How big is this library by the way ?

    I think the list above my post covers most of the ones I was thinking of, minus the ones I have never heard of

    Nick, what a great idea. How about the Bayati, Hijazi, and Sehgah. These are wonderful middle east modes! If it's alright I can email you a .pdf that goes into the tuning detail behind these scales. Let me know Nick and I'll send it to you.
    I think a favorite gag in medival times was to sneak up behind a Knight and stick a "kick me" sign on his armor with a magnet.

    If you could get the gamelan tuned in both slendro and pelog, that would be AMAZING. I had figured I'd be doing that myself when I got the lib

    I have no clue what microtuning is, what so ever... could someone fill me in, or link me to a explanation for dummies?
