    R.A.W.Russian Zither (free instrument)

    Hi folks

    This instrument originates from Russia, and is used in some Eastern-European folk music. It includes 4 different playing styles and an ensemble patch combining some of them. Here's an mp3 demo:

    "The Icy Cavern"

    Download the instrument here:

    Hey Herman, are these pc-only files? I'm using a mac and trying to use rubber chicken translator to change the gigastudio into an EXS-24. It may be something with my translator, cuz it isn't even seeing the giga file. But if you know right off that this won't work, please advise.

    Lovely demos, btw!! I hope I can get this to work!

    Any Giga 2.5 users who can confirm the file works for them? If so, converting to EXS should work as well.

    Yes, the zither works fine in GS 2.5. Thanks Herman!

    Herman -- YOU RULE!!

    Once again, thanks for taking the time to make these instruments and share them with us.
    Some experts learn more and more about less and less, until at last they know everything there is about nothing at all.
