Koto Nation - Sounds and Gear

"This is all that really matters at the end of the day for most, and this has a very detailed, authentic sound. For me, it’s awesome, it’s not a general use, all around instrument. It’s specific to the instruments it covers, and it covers them well. […] At the end of the day, a great sound is a great sound, and with all the articulations in this library it’s really easy to find what you need. It’s priced well within the reach of everyone from hobbyists to professional composers, so that’s always a plus." (4.5/5) JK Swopes (Sounds and Gear)

Ventus Shakuhachi - Original Sound Version

"Ventus Series: Shakuhachi delivers a clear and lifelike performance of the instrument and there are plenty of options for customizing various aspects of the sound. The ornaments feature allows for more spontaneous sounding performances that reflect the strengths of the Shakuhachi’s idiomatic sound. Inclusion of a phrase library offers additional sounds to either enhance existing performances of the main instrument or for use as one shot effects or sound design." (Original Sound Version)

Ventus Winds: Shakuhachi - macProVideo.com

"Excellent rendition of this classic Eastern instrument. Very deeply sampled library with multiple Mic position, plus the unique TACT technology for phrasing...If you are working on ethnic pieces that focus on the East this is definitely an instrument to add to your toolbox, or it even fits in well with cinematic pieces like film trailers and such….The Ventus Shakuhachi is a super rendition of this classic instrument. It has been sampled with great detail, and making use of the features such as the flutter, dynamics and ornaments can really bring out the character of the instrument." Gary Hiebner (macProVideo.com)
