Zither Renaissance is a virtual instrument based on a damaged plucked zither recording that has been restored. A combination of audio engineering techniques has been used to make these sitar samples great: spectral repair, adaptative noise removal, and manual retuning.
The original recording has been provided by the kind folks at Versilian Studios.
The result is a unique instrument that has a sound of its own, is easy to use, and will cut through your mixes.
