Origins Vol.3
12-String & Balalaika

Cinematic and contemporary!

Pairing a radiant 12-String guitar with the signature sound of the Balalaika, Sonuscore brings you the third entry in their Origins series.

 

 


  • The powerful Multi-Arpeggio-Designer (MAD) opens up a whole new world of possibilities with these carefully selected plucked string instruments: Enrich your composition with ethereal textures, ethnic trills, mystic shimmers and other sonic creations in the Origins tradition, take a bold step into modern genres and shine the spotlight on the instrument’s warm, bright timbre, or bring an electric, gritty vibe into the mix.
  • Choose from numerous ready-to-go presets or color profiles and play any combination or progression unfolding in your mind as the instrument adds its magic to your creative input.
  • As always, the ability to play both instruments interlocking, independently, with inspiring patterns as well as single notes, chords and rhythms on the fly with full customization options will help you keep an expedient workflow as well as achieve truly unique results.

The Instruments

The 12-String acoustic guitar offers a fresh, bright sound for a modern and familiar feel and, at the same time, can be used to emphasize ethnic, far-away nuances in your music.
Add the Balalaika for rich, more delicate and traditionally rooted textures. Originally from the regions of Central Asia and Russia, the Balalaika feels right at home in any ethnic, cinematic or contemporary setting, suited for gentle accompaniment as well as characteristic melodies.

Multi-Arpeggio-Designer

The Multi-Arpeggio-Designer is the centerpiece of every „Origins“-instrument. Two fully customizable arpeggiators create interlocking patterns and broad soundscapes by combining the unique timbres of the two instruments. The engine is designed to convey a musically meaningful, human performance, instead of a computer randomly aligning notes.
Load up one of 100+ inspiring presets or create your own arpeggios in as much detail as you like. The MAD provides a variety of different features and controls to realize your musical vision.
