Sinori LIVE

Sinori is a one of a kind percussion derived from a sheet of steel, capable of producing a wide range of interesting sounds thanks to its unorthodox design and shape that allows unique playing techniques, as well as the most traditional ones.

It is the result of a study on metallic materials used in the field of music to produce sounds, as well as the application of the most important theories in engineering design. Its structure is composed of a sheet of steel which was moulded into a clear-cut shape and provided with a wooden knob which allows the user to hold the instrument with ease.

We have recorded two Sinori models in collaboration with its creator: a standard version (Sinori Studio, not yet released) and a special prototype (Sinori Live). This sample library features the Live model.

During the recording sessions we have sampled the following playing techniques: mallets (on the metal sheet / on the knob), superball mallets, harmonics and hits made with various drumsticks (wood, bamboo) and body-playing, a special playing technique unique to this instrument.

Thanks to the high resolution samples recorded at 24 bit / 96 KHz and the mapping capabilities of KONTAKT, the instrument's range has been extended to produce a wide palette of sounds that can rival other metallic percussions and bring new flavours to your compositions at the same time.
