Jakarta, Java, Bali, New Guinea, and Sumatra
The Republic of Indonesia is located in the Malay Archipelago, the world's largest archipelago, between Indochina and Australia, and between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Under the supervision of master sound producer Makoto Kubota, this special collection captures the musical magic of Java and Bali.

The most well known Indonesian music, ‹Gamelan› is an ensemble of instruments indigenous to the islands of Bali or Java (gamelan means orchestra). An ensemble is composed of small bronze metallophones tuned to a four or five - note scale, various gongs, flutes, drums and other percussion. Thanks to Makoto, valuable ‹Sundanese Gamelan› having the strong local color is offered in ACID format on the disc. Enjoy the comfortable and powerful samples. ‹Gamelan› is supplied both as ensemble and solo on the disc.

‹Jegog› is also a world-famous Indonesian instrument. ‹Jegog› plays very low tone, and the ensemble is more powerful than ever before. The music is very fast, loud, rhythmic and precise. On this library, the music is offered as multi-samples so that both solo and ensemble are available.

Set of drums as Tabla is called ‹Gendang› in Indonesia. This library supplies a unique ‹Gendang› remodeled by the musician. The biggest attraction is the rich sounds and the way of playing created just by his two hands. The disc offers useful rhythm patterns and single shots.

In addition, ‹Kecak› known as Indonesian voice percussion is highly dynamic, rhythmically chant. This library offers the casual version ‹Senggak› sung by fewer people than ‹Kecak›, that was taken over in Sunda Islands.

Including further greatest instruments, the samples are covered in ACID/WAV/REX2/KONTAKT/BATTERY/ MACHFIVE formats on the disc. Dazzling, exotic Indonesian sounds and samples that will cast magic over your music.
