MOTU Ethno Instrument 2

The MOTU Ethno Instrument 2 provides a variety of ethnic instrument sounds, loops, and phrases in a gigantic 21GB library consisting of multi-sample instruments recorded across the globe. Users can browse the instrument library by category or geographic region. Additionally, any selected loops or phrases will be tempo-locked when applied to the primary software’s timeline. Loops can be dragged and dropped onto individual tracks, or sliced and played across a MIDI controller. But the features don’t stop with samples. Ethno also includes convolution reverb, which transplants sounds into authentic acoustic environments, this means that once a song is created it can be effectively mixed in Ethno or the host software.
