Sitarion is a powerful virtual electric sitar library designed to harmonize tradition and innovation. Chithrinie Nirupama sampled her beautiful custom sitar to bring you rich, deep multi-samples and a vast collection of live performance phrases.
This library fuses the timeless characteristics of the sitar with modern advances of recording techniques, mapping, scripting, and playability.
Sitarion is the complete package: rich, deep multi-samples and a vast collection of live performance phrases. It includes plucks recorded with 6 velocity layers and 12 round robin for every note possible on the sitar, as well as the Chikari and resonant strings. Sitarion also has many ornamental articulations: hammer-ons, meends (slide/bend) both up and down with semitone and whole tone varieties, and krinthans (a special Indian technique combining hammer-on and pull-off). These special articulations have multiple dynamics and varying speeds. All multi-samples include both damped and open variations.
Sitarion also comes with over 3000 live performance phrases spanning 6 different BPMs and 6 roots, utilizing a wide range of keys and scales. Our flexible GUI gives you access to real-time articulation selection and performance features, key-switch and mapping options, arpeggiator, phrase sequencer, and full FX rack, all packed into an intuitive and customizable user interface.
