We are very proud to present our second World Strings instrument – “Oud” – a creative collaboration between Kim Cunio and the Evolution Series.
World Strings Oud, created for Kontakt 5, has a simple but intuitive interface. Our cutting-edge scripting techniques help you fully control the powerful and sensual Oud sound. Kim’s deep knowledge of world music, his musical technique and unique playing style have enabled us to create an exclusive and inspiring virtual game experience.
This high-quality and beautiful Oud instrument can best be described as having a wonderful warm, full and accurate tone. Recording his sounds at the stage of scoring using high-quality microphones gives the sound palette an amazing three-dimensional sound dimension.
