Welcome to Electric Saz library! Electric Saz is a truly deep-sampled 5-string electric saz baglâma library for Kontakt with a huge range of extended content, an innovative new custom interface and cutting-edge powerful performance features. This beautiful fretless Saz was procured directly from the streets of Turkey, where master craftsman have been building them by hand for centuries. We painstakingly sampled all three “runs” of strings (low octave, middle single and high unison) with a massive 12x round robin and up to 6 velocity layers for open notes on an octave and a half per string. Continuing the depth are palm mutes, string chokes, release samples and a slew of percussive effects all at 12x round robin with multiple velocity layers. Custom wiring let us isolate and sample each pick-up – bridge and neck – separately and our custom user interface allows for full control (including disabling) over each pick-up. We set out to make the Electric Saz the most realistic, playable and flexible instrument we could, expertly capturing it’s naturally beautiful sound in stunning clarity and unmatched depth. With a powerful custom interface, intelligent pluck mode, hand position, tuning, key range, chord, strum, legato, arpeggiation, effects rack and advanced custom performance technologies, we put the power of the real instrument right in your hands. Enjoy!
