Karoryfer Samples have released Turkish Rebab, a Middle Eastern bowed string instrument for the free Plogue Sforzando sampler (version 1.971 or newer).
A spike rebab played in a traditional Turkish style. This is an ancestor of the violin which existed in basically the same form in the VIII century and possibly even earlier, and revived as retro in the XIX century.
This particular rebab has three strings but the highest string is normally the only one used for playing melodies, so the special articulations are only recorded on this string. The two lower strings are mainly used for sympathetic resonance and sometimes as drones, but we’ve sampled them chromatically for the basic articulations.
