With over 320 instruments at your fingertips World Suite delivers thousands of years of musical culture from every major continent and ethnic tradition. Explore the sounds of our global heritage and traverse the most secluded corners of the world for inspiration with hundreds of playable instruments and thousands of authentically performed loops and phrases.
World Suite's scope is truly massive, it’s one our largest libraries yet including well over 50,000 samples and representing years of planning, recording, editing, coding and design to realize. The vision was simple, we wanted to create a single library that would allow anyone to quickly and easily navigate to any region of the world, browse local instruments and begin playing. That's exactly what you get with World Suite. Journey to Africa and feel the primal drive of tribal drums and the hypnotizing resonances of the mbira, to Asia and Indonesia for the delicate strings of the koto, mystical shakuhachi flutes and the cerebral gamelan, or to Australia for the didgeridoo and ancient percussive instruments of the aborigine... Wherever you want to go World Suite can be your musical guide with the largest and most complete collection of traditional instruments ever in software form.
World Suite is divided into 12 groups by geography and ethnography including Africa, Asia, Australia, Celtic, Eastern Europe, India, Indonesia, Middle East, Occidental, South America, Spanish Gypsy and West Indies. Browse instruments by region or type, so regardless of whether you need sounds from a certain geographical location or a specific instrument category you can find what you need quickly and efficiently.
Each instrument in World Suite was carefully recorded to preserve and convey both their natural physical qualities and traditional playing styles with the highest quality equipment available. The result are instruments that have both a genuine voicing and a transparent sound quality throughout the entire suite. Custom controls are available based on instrument type, allowing you to adjust things like fret noise on various stringed instruments, transient level and timbre on pitched percussions, legato, portamento, velocity curve, 3-band EQ, as well as a superb IR reverb (available on every instrument), all provided in intuitive and inspiring user interfaces. Easily fine- tune and place your instrument in the mix and utilize the built-in key-switches to add dynamics and variety to your performances.
LOOPS AND PHRASES
In addition to the deeply-sampled instruments, World Suite includes a massive selection of authentically performed loops and phrases, browsable by region or instrument type, ready to be arranged, chopped or reshaped into new forms of your own design.
