Shruti Box

Kontakt Instrument by Have Instruments

Buy and getFREE

A box full of wonder! This is what a Shruti Box is.

Just by itself, this tiny acoustic instrument is able to produce timbres ranging from pure accordion-like sounds, ecstatic pedal notes and drones, blues-harp-like tones up to weird, granular and almost-synthetic textures. For this reason, Have Instruments decided not to serve it in our usual blends but to sample the acoustic instrument in-depth and extend its natural range and music potential thanks to our double espresso engine and a set of unique and creative custom FX.

Shruti Box will become a must-have tool for all film composers and music producers interested in an ethnic instrument with that extra touch!

This bundle includes three separate Kontakt instruments plus a bonus instrument: Shruti Box Essentials, Shruti Box Extended and Shruti Box Harmonic and the bonus Shruti Box Interval Machine and requires the full version of Kontakt to work. Please note this will not work in the free Kontakt Player.
