INTRODUCTION

Welcome to SONUSCORE ANCIENT DUDUK PHRASES. This Kontakt instrument enables you to integrate expressive Duduk phrases into your compositions.

DOWNLOAD & INSTALLATION

Once you have received the link via mail, you can directly download the zip-file from our web server. The installation process is very easy: choose or create any folder you like on your hard drive and completely unpack the zip-file in there. Bear in mind that the chosen path should not be too complicated as you need to browse to the respective folder every time you open the .nki-file with KONTAKT. To do so, launch KONTAKT, click on FILES and then LOAD. Browse to the specific folder where you have saved ANCIENT DUDUK PHRASES, double-click on the nki-file and you are good to go! Alternatively, you can just drag-and-drop the nki-file into KONTAKT.

NOTE: This instrument requires the full version of KONTAKT 6.6.0. Also, ANCIENT DUDUK PHRASES is NOT a “Powered by Kontakt”-library, so you cannot add it via the ADD LIBRARYbutton on the side panel. Instead, you will have to load it manually through the File browser or save its path with the Quick-Load function.
