Instruments
The Ethno Instrument provides 21 GB of world/ethnic instruments, loops and phrases. Ethno's instrument presets give you access to individual notes as usual, played from your MIDI controller. Ethno Instrument provides over 875 instrument presets made up of over 26,000 samples.

New for Version 2: over 875 instrument presets
New sounds abound in Version 2 from Asia, Africa, Europe, the Balkans, the British Isles, Latin America, Australia, and many other locations around the globe.

Featured sounds include taiko drums, large African drums, thirty new instruments from India, hundreds of urban India loops (in the style of Slumdog Millionaire), Balkanish voices, Arabic voices, Persian voices, an extensive new collection of gongs and bells, extended cymbalum, and much more.

Browsing by geographic region or by category
Ethno's preset browser organizes instrument sounds by geographic region and by category to make it quick and easy for you to find the instrument you are looking for.

Instrument presets
If necessary, presets are organized into sub-menus with scroll bars to help you locate sounds quickly. Depending on the instrument, the number of presets that Ethno provides can be staggering.

Searching for presets
Use the Search Instruments feature to quickly find presets. Type in any text string and all presets with that name instantly appear in the list.

Loading multiple presets quickly
You can keep the browser open while auditioning and loading presets into parts. This lets you build entire ensembles of any size quickly, thanks to Ethno 2's unlimited parts.

Keyswitch presets for expressive performance
Many of Ethno's instrument sounds are provided in several preset forms, due to the many stylistic variations that musicians evoke from their instrument. For example, all three African flute presets show below have hit, short, and sus (sustain) variations.

At the bottom of the list, are the three keyswitch (KS) presets, which combine all three variations into one preset, so that you can change between the hit, short and sus variations on the fly while playing. The keyswitch keys are conveniently shown, so you know exactly what keys to press to change them.

Many Ethno instrument presets, both from Version 1 and Version 2, are programmed with KS presets.

Other Feature Highlights
Convolution reverb
Convolution is a process where the characteristics of a real acoustic space are directly sampled, such as a cave, forest, canyon, theater, cathedral or concert hall. The resulting impulse response (IR) consists of an audio file that holds the actual sound decay characteristics of the acoustic space. By sophisticated signal processing, that impulse response can then be applied to the loops, phrases and instrument presets in Ethno Instrument, making them sound exactly as if it were being heard in the acoustic environment captured by the impulse response.

Convolution reverb is the most realistic type of reverb ever developed because it faithfully reproduces the actual characteristics of real acoustic spaces.

The Ethno Instrument provides a wide variety of convolution reverb spaces, plus 'fast' reverbs that work well on slower computers.

Dynamic performance with Expert Mode
Expert mode lets you dynamically add, remove and stack (layer) multiple instruments, loops and phrases as you play them from your MIDI controller. Bring instruments in and out, on the fly, using key switches, velocity ranges or note ranges. You can even crossfade between instruments by sending continuous MIDI data (expression controllers) from a mod wheel or other device. Ethno Instrument truly is a powerful real-time performance tool that delivers an entire world of sounds to your fingertips.

Realistic expression with MIDI controllers
Achieve incredibly realistic, dynamic performances from Ethno Instrument using MIDI continuous controller data from your mod wheel, foot pedal, automated fader control surface or other MIDI control source. Most of Ethno Instrument's parameters can be mapped to external control, giving you hands-on, real-time expressive control over your sounds. You can even assign MIDI modulation to crucial individual parameters such as filter cutoff frequency for even deeper expressiveness.

Scroll Wheel Support
For additional convenience and fast operation, Ethno Instrument supports the scroll wheel on your mouse. Use it to quickly adjust settings or choose an instrument.
