ĐÀN TRAHN

WALKTHROUGH

PRODUCT INFO

The Dan Tranh is a traditional zither originating from Vietnam. 16-17 metal strings run the length of the Dan Tranh with bridges under each.

In traditional performance on this instrument, one hand plucks the strings on one side of these bridges using plectrums (finger-picks) and the other hand bends the pitches of the notes as desired on the other side of the bridges. This allows an incredibly dynamic and unique performance which is very hard to sample and replicate.

This is a detailed, mono sampling of the instrument with a number of idiomatic and western techniques.

BEHIND-THE-SCENES

SAMUEL "CAMOSHARK" HEBERT

The guiding principle we followed while making this instrument was a careful balance of playability and realism. While we tried hard to cater to the modern composer with more advanced techniques, we also had serious technical considerations we wanted to make clear about the instrument idiomatically, not just make a pad of unrealistic sounds.

 

Ultimately the lessons learned making this library formed the foundations of the Nouveau and Artist series, our current efforts, as well as set the bar pretty high for the years to come. We're proud of this instrument and we hope you enjoy it too!
