"Ethno 2 is fantastic by the way, had a little play today, it sounds really vibrant and organic!"
Ethno Instrument's 21 GB sound library provides over 7,600 loops and phrases.
Ethno Instrument loops are typically several bars long and include one or more related instruments played in stylistically authentic fashion. Loops are different from phrases because they are designed to play as a loop (over and over, seamlessly). Phrases, on the other hand, would usually be played one at a time, such as a vocal phrase.
Browsing loops and phrases
The number and variety of loops and phrases is, again, staggering. But Ethno's elegant browser makes it quick an easy to find the sound you are looking for.
Loop and phrase presets
If necessary, presets are organized into sub-menus with scroll bars to help you locate sounds quickly. Depending on the preset category or sub-menu, the number of presets that Ethno provides can be staggering, as demonstrated in the movie above.
Searching for presets
Use the Search Loops feature to quickly find loops and phrases. Type in any text string and all presets with that name instantly appear in the list.
Loading multiple presets quickly
You can keep the browser open while auditioning and loading presets into parts. This lets you build entire ensembles of any size quickly, thanks to Ethno 2's unlimited parts. Click here for a demonstration of this.
Play the movie below to hear an example of Ethno Instrument's loops. This example features an African percussion ensemble, one of the preset enembles ("multis") that are included with Ethno Instrument.
