KOTO 13 Version 2

The 13-string koto is one of Japan’s most dignified traditional instruments.

Capable of everything from elegant, single plucked notes to aggressive glissandos, the koto boasts a wide range of musical expressions and can add a dash of refinement and grace to traditional Japanese music, modern film scores, and many other genres.

KOTO 17

Naturally, KOTO 17 can be used as a solo instrument. But it complements the 13-string koto and shakuhachi extraordinarily well, making it an essential component in both classical and contemporary Japanese music circles. 

And when paired with other titles from the Virtuoso Japanese Series, such as KOTO 13, KOTO 20, or Shakuhachi, KOTO 17 can complete an incredibly powerful ensemble.

KOTO 20

The library can naturally be used on its own. But when combined with other titles from the Virtuoso Japanese Series — such as KOTO 13, KOTO 17, or Shakuhachi — as well as orchestral instruments, KOTO 20 can complete a rich and broad ensemble.

SHAKUHACHI

Singing sonorous intonation, deep yet delicate breathing, and a Japanese sound aesthetic spilling into the periphery: The shakuhachi — an instrument symbolic of Japan — finally joins the Virtuoso Japanese Series family.

SHO

The sho is free reed musical instrument and one of the three primary woodwind instruments used in gagaku court orchestra music. Consisting of 17 slender bamboo pipes, it is sometimes said to resemble a resting phoenix because of its shape. In antiquity, the sho’s fluid tonal character was associated with light shining down from the heavens.

After completing the world’s first comprehensive sho sampling, Sonica Instruments is proud to add the Sho library to the Virtuoso Japanese Series.

SANSHIN

The sanshin, more than any other instrument, symbolizes Okinawan and Yaeyama music. The three-string instrument has had a tremendous influence on the rustic and earthy folk songs of Yaeyama and Ryukyu as well as on eisa folk dancing, pop music, and even rock.

Besides capturing the raw sounds with absolute fidelity, we spent considerable time researching the sanshin and enhancing the library to allow performers to personalize the instrument to their taste.
