Welcome to the continent of the Great Bear. Russian Masters is a CD-ROM for the Emu family of Emulator IVX, EIV, E64, E6400, EIIIX, ESI-32 and EIII samplers which incorporates 80 banks of digital instrumentation from the former Soviet Union and parts of Asia. These folk and ethnic acoustic instruments were recorded by Martin Kiszko from the U.K. The 600 megabyte CD-ROM includes looped and unlooped versions of many of the instruments. In addition, all solo instrument trills were recorded in half-step intervals, so when playing more than one note, you will hear the real trills (no digital pitch shifting at any interval).
Besides individual notes, Russian Masters includes many performances and motifs for media and filmscore effects. Many of these instruments have heretofore been unavailable to the west. And now through Northstar they have been made available to you.
