Contrabass Panduri & Tanbur

The twangy drones of the Tanbur are the ideal counterpart to the Contrabass Panduri's profound sonority. Despite the fact that the two instruments are from the same region, it's possible that this wonderful pairing has never happened before because the Contrabass Panduri is so rare.

The Instruments

Contrabass Panduri - The Contrabass Panduri is a contemporary invention that was created in response to Georgians' demand for a low-registry instrument for concert folk performances. Perhaps only 10 of these truly rare instruments are known to exist inside the borders of Georgia.

Tanbur - The Tanbur is a long-necked, Middle Eastern instrument whose drones and picks have adorned musical traditions in Persia, India, and Central Asia in addition to the Balkans, Turkey, and Arabia. It goes by as many names as countries that claim it in their heritage, and is a definite classic instrument to add that “Eastern” sound.

  • Best Practice Tip #1 - Use long, low plucks on the Contrabass Panduri to stress the progression just like you would on a regular contrabass, while the twangier Tanbur can glitter across the higher reaches of the fret board.

  • Best Practice Tip #2 - Use a note from the Tanbur as a drone sound and the other notes, along with the Contrabass Panduri, to play the melodic elements.  

  • Presets - The presets were created with a degree of realism in mind, mirroring how they would be played, in order to really display the two instruments' inspiring beauty. They are separated into the Normal and the Odd categories. While Odd explores various time signatures like 5/8, 7/8, 3/4, and more, Normal provides 4/4 arpeggios.

  • Customize - Discover the world through the Middle Eastern and Caucasian rhythms. Utilize the personalized effects grids and arpeggiators to create the precise sound you seek.

Colors Menu

The 12 distinct color presets give you even more options for shaping your sound. All colors feature varied effect settings, diverse impulse responses, and dramatically different personalities. While every MAD-Preset has a specific color allocated to it, you can combine any two colors together to create over 1000 predefined combinations.

Multi-Arpeggio Designer

The core of each ORIGINS instrument is the Multi-Arpeggio-Designer. By mixing the distinctive tones of the two ethnic string instruments, two completely adjustable arpeggiators produce interlocking patterns and expansive soundscapes.

Instead of a machine randomly matching notes, the engine is intended to present a musically relevant, human performance. Choose from more than 80 creative presets to start with, or design your own customized arpeggios. The MAD offers a wide range of options and controls to help you fulfill your musical vision.
