Findasound – Fayez Saidawi Egyptian Ney (KONTAKT)

By | November 27, 2017
Egyptian Ney is a set of 3 neys: A, B, and C. Where ney A is more like a synth ney or a lead ney with a fast attack sounded for synth sounds gurus who want the ney to sound like a synth lead sound, and that is more like a Turkish – Persian ney , and finally C which sounds more like a Kawala with mid attack and more airy sound. All sound samples are looped and scripted to work with Kontakt version 5.4 to get a realistic performance of the instrument as much as possible.
The concept of the instrument is controlled by the modulation wheel, that controls the airs of the ney, but because of the special characteristics of the ney we are called “dynamic to pitch”. The dynamic to pitch function is basically linking modulation and pitch bender together where pitch can go up / down along with dynamics and this will create the realistic vibrato that the ney player produces while playing the instrument. The amount of the pitch change, whether up or down, can be controlled by a knob. Please see product images / screen shots
Wind / air and release samples can be controlled by two knobs and learn by default. Even though the ney does not know its effect, the saxophone for instance, we did add that as an option along with the tongue flutter effect. The volume control of the growl and the flutter effect is assigned to midi CC 23 and 21 but you can still use the midi.
The two meters on the interface named “Dynamics” and “pitch” show the change in pitch and / or dynamics in real time while playing, they can be used and using the midi learn option. Keep in mind that this does not mean that you want to change the pitch of the pitch. You can control pitch and / or dynamics with other than bender and modulation.
The quarter tone option allows you to use middle eastern and Arabic scales by quarter toning notes with one click plus adjusting the tuning amount +/- 50 cents.
The Effects tab includes Reverb with real IR spaces and a delay.
The instrument smart articulation script will detect the articulations automatically by velocity and speed of moving and moving between keys, even though the ney is a monophonic instrument. Articulations included are slow and fast portamento, legato, staccato, and poly.
