Cambridge, MA (February 6, 2006)--MOTU has debuted its Ethno Instrument, a cross-platform virtual instrument that gives users access to an 8GB library of world/ethnic instruments, loops and phrases.
MOTU's Ethno InstrumentWith 4GB of ethnic instrument sounds combined with another 4GB of authentic world music loops and phrases, Ethno Instrument, according to the company, "delivers all of the exotic textures needed to take recordings to the four corners of the globe." Musicians who specialize in each instrument were recorded with pristine audio fidelity and careful attention to detail.

For example, many of the included instruments do not conform to Western tonality, so two different Ethno presets are provided: one preset with original, unmodified tuning and a second preset with each note tuned to conform to a Western 12-tone chromatic scale. Users can then play the instrument in its truly authentic form or incorporate it into music with conventional Western tonality.
