    I'm looking for samples of these instruments. Any suggestions?
    I have Ethno World 6 and the Shakuhaci is OK, and the Ney is not sounding good at all.

    Eduardo tarilonte has some nice ones, and shakuhachi from impact sound works may be what you look for

    However all have their limits and cannot do what the full range of the real instrument can do. So depends on what you need it for if it fits

    Premier Sound Factory have a Shakuhachi library, but for some reason it's no longer up on their website.

    Man, I wish I could tame it to play any tips ?

    For now I been using the Spitfire but it is a bit to clinical for me. The VSL one in the Kontakt Factory library ain't half bad, but it's pretty plain.

    I’ve actually wanted to find the shakuhachi from Roland D-50, aka the Father Figure sound. Only way to get it seems to be the new roland boutique hardware synth, or roland cloud.

    Do you need a remote recording? A friend of mine plays professionally wonderful World Flutes, Ney, Shakuhachi, Bawu, Hulusi, Tin Whistle, Low Whistle, Flute, Irish Wood Flute, and more...

    Yes, looks like they’ve redone their website and removed all but drumtree and a stienway I hadn’t seen before. Perhaps they are finally giving their instruments proper interfaces and will repost them as they finish. Glad I picked through them before they vanished without warning. ;)

    Priemer’s is beautiful, but I would check out sound Impact Soundworks, many articulations and control. Or look into the updated desert winds or east west Ra or Silk.

    I love the Shakuhachi and Ney patches in both EastWest RA and Goliath.
