The Impact Soundworks Ethnic Bundle is here! With this deal you can get SIX authentic ethnic libraries for $149.99, using your reward points. There are many gems among this collection, offering instruments from corners of the globe, including Japan, India, Greece, Kazakhstan, European/celtic, and Turkey.
This collection offers so much content, I was really blown away not just by the authenticity of the sampled instruments, but the possibilities for sound design, including creating your own layered soundscapes and underscore elements. While this collection focuses mostly on plucked instruments, they offer various playing styles from hammered to bowed, percussive slaps and noises, and effects like glissandi and short phrases.
