Apurnicus - how is the swar plug-in working out for you? It has a lot of patches that interest me....how's the overall quality of the sounds? Are the instruments pretty detailed? How's it working out with the zendrum? I'd love to hear how its working...thanks for any comments you've got time to post.
peace & harmony
i have swarplug and the instruments are good, and you'll have a tough time finding this selection of indian instruments in any library. However, there are a few flaws:
1. No velocity switching whatsoever. One single velocity layer. It's still workable but by today's standards this is sub par.
2. I have noticed on some samples, during the decay, perhaps due to compression, there is a significant amount of noise at the end of the decay. This can be compensated for by using the decay control and shortening it.
3. Other random anomalies.
4. Samples are 16 bit
all in all the samples DO sound decent. I think considering that there is no velocity switching it IS a tad overpriced at $239. I will say on the positive side, there are a good number of articulations for each instrument (so it is multisampled, just not multi velocity layered).
