Virtuoso Japanese Series Vol. 3 SHAKUHACHI for Kontakt 5.4 Coming Soon!

on .

[Teaser video]

Singing sonorous intonation, deep yet delicate breathing, and a Japanese sound esthetic spilling into the periphery.

The shakuhachi — an instrument symbolic of Japan — finally joins the Virtuoso Japanese Series family.


To faithfully reproduce this resonant wind instrument for the SHAKUHACHI for Kontakt 5.4 library, Sonica Instruments had to
develop a number of brand-new mechanisms from scratch. These include key trigger connections, blow (breath) controls, and
legato and grace note controls. With these novel mechanisms, the player can move through a colorful assortment of articulations
without ever interrupting the sound.


The library is a hybrid of the shakuhachi (1.8 shakuhachi) and the 2.3 shakuhachi, which covers lower tones. Meticulous attention
is given to the finest details of the instrument, such as fine tuning for each keyboard mapping.


SHAKUHACHI for Kontakt 5.4 is the only software library capable of expressing the performance nuances of a skilled shakuhachi master.

We are now putting the final touches on the library. Look out for more announcements soon.
