Triple A Audio is excited to announce our first release, Folk Noir: Qanun for Kontakt. This meticulously recorded virtual instrument brings the mystical melodies of the Middle East and the Caucasus to your digital studio.  We sampled an Armenian Qanun hand-made in a small village in Armenia in the Southern Caucasus. With metal levers and wooden tuning pegs to alter the pitch of the note, it can play a range of up to 3 and a half octaves. The recording player wore the traditional silver thimble and pick made of bull horns on both index fingers to resonate the sounds.

The Qanun virtual instrument for Kontakt is deeply sampled using multiple mics, catching every pristine pluck by qanun master Mayranush Rubenyan in delicate perfection. With up to 5 round robins and 5 velocity layers on each of the 8 articulations, it’s a professional-grade tool for composers, producers, and musicians.

Besides its exotic merits, the Qanun can serve as a replacement for piano and harp in traditional arrangements. Bring a touch of uniqueness and mystery to your cinematic arrangements or indulge in Middle Eastern flavors with the Qanun at the front.
