This sample pack brings the unique sounds of one of the oldest instruments in the world – the Armenian duduk – to your DAW. It has polyphonic and legato modes and brings the same easy-to-use GUI found in most Sonic Zest plug-ins. There are controls over the envelope, gain staging, and even effects like delay, chorus, and reverb. It requires Kontakt 5.8.1 to run but doesn’t take up much space. The instrument has been used in many feature films, and this spot-on sample pack is available to you for just $40.

Tempos range from 80-135bpm, and some loops even come in MIDI so you can change them up if you’d like.
