Hey guys!

So i need to write a modern orchestral score but with Japanese elements, and i thought maybe you guys have any ideas about a Japanese sound design library? i know its specific but maybe a Japanese instrument library with bonus sound-designed patches?
Or maybe if you have any ideas of where to start (the theme is mostly for a villan).

Thanks!

As far as percussion goes, I think a good library to consider is the Bamboo Ensemble (Soundiron).
You actually just missed 8dio's Taiko library sale. There's that and there's Taiko 2 (Nine Volt Audio). And the freebie SCC Taiko Drums.

Aside from some percussion I don't really know what else. Have a look at EW's Composer Cloud. I've heard good things about the Silk product from it.

D'oh! Of course, the Ventus Shakuhachi slipped my mind. I was distracted when I wrote that last post haha.
Also, don't forget Koto Nation, also from ISW! Another great instrument.

I got a license for Taiko 2 shortly before Nine Volt Audio closed their shop. As far as I know there isn't a way to purchase it anymore, but if there's an authorized reseller it might be interesting to see what else is out there from their old product line.
