Arabic E-Oud - The Virtual Electric Counterpart to the "Queen of Instruments"

In Arabic music, the Oud is considered one of the oldest musical instruments; in 
fact, in the Middle East it plays an important role in musical tradition. Although 
the origins of this instrument are uncertain, the popularity of the Oud has spread 
across the Mediterranean, North and East Africa and the Middle East, where it is 
still very popular to this day. In the Western World, the Oud is probably best 
known as the forerunner of the European lute.

As with the Arabic Oud, the Arabic E-Oud Library was created in close collaboration 
with the renowned musician and oud virtuoso Bassam Ayoub. Bassam Ayoub performed 
and recorded all playing variations with the main emphasis on achieving an 
authentic sound, both for melodic playing and rhythmic accompaniment. Due to the 
built-in pickup, the characteristic sound of the E-Oud gets a very special touch, 
which makes this instrument the perfect link between traditional oriental and 
western music.

The Arabic E-Oud offers breathtaking 25 articulations with up to 20 velocity layers 
and 16 Round Robins and brings one of the oldest string instruments to life right 
under your fingertips. The versatile sound spectrum can enrich any kind of music 
and the integrated microtunings are very appealing to professional Maqam 
performers! Because of its wide range of playing styles, the Arabic Oud is ideal 
for both studio and live performances.

The Engine

The Arabic E-Oud transports the sound of the Middle East into todays DAW-based 
production environment. The Engine Player's carefully programmed interface makes it 
really easy to work with the library, allowing you to be inspired by the sound of 
the Electric Oud and unleash your creativity.

The user interface gives you access to the most important and commonly used 
microtunings of oriental music: Bayati, Rast, Saba and Seka. Each tuning offers two 
variants (Normal and Syriac Church) as well as free choice of the root key.

The Keyswitches allow you to switch between the different playing techniques to 
create incredibly realistic performances. There are two types of keyswitches: latch 
and hold. While Latch Keyswitches remain active after the key is released, Hold 
Keyswitches remain active only as long as they are pressed and held by the player - 
after the key is released, the playing mode changes to the last selected Latch 
Keyswitch.

The green Midi Song Keys above the playing area provide short Midi sequences which 
showcase the numerous playing possibilities of the Arabic E-Oud.

Syrian-born Bassam Ayoub, musician and singer, has toured with various bands across 
many Arabic countries and Europe. He has worked with countless artists, as well as 
with renowned oriental keyboard and expander manufacturers such as Korg, Farfisa 
and Limex. The Arabic E-Oud is the next step on his hunt for the perfect virtual 
oud, which captures the unique sound of this unique instrument.

Works with Engine Version 2.7.0.17 or higher!
