Hi all,

Has anyone developed an Ethnic performances library as of yet?

Thanks.

Ethnic can mean different things. Any specific content you're looking for (certain region)? Or are you looking for a broad collection of material that covers all of the various locales including (but not limited to):

Africa
Afrobeat
Afro-Pop
Asia
Australia
Bossa Nova
Cajun
Caribbean
Celtic
Celtic Folk
Contemporary Celtic
Drinking Songs
Drone (ethnic or spiritual music which contains drones and is rhythmically still or very slow)
Europe
France
Hawaii
Indian Pop
Japan
Japanese Pop
Klezmer
Middle East
North America (native American)
Polka
South Africa
South America
Traditional Celtic
Worldbeat
Zydeco

Montage has many performances which cover ethnic/world music. I imagine you've been through those already and are looking to augment the content already available as presets.

I am an Asian too. I'd like to have some Asia sounds like this for my Montage if some developer can create this...

I'm looking for Indian sounds or samples for a particular upcoming concert tour.

I've now got an idea how to do it and will keep you all informed.

Thank you.

But take time to check all the ethnic sounds on Montage by checking the Ethnic Category before to load or buy anything.

Im looking for asian samples like erhu etc. I am aware about the sound set for Motif XS but i bought a Montage, so im sure there should be a set specifically for Montage to make use of its features.

Thanks guys.

I have found my answers and will keep you updated on how I get along.

The Montage is still very new to me, so I'm taking my time to dive into programming it deeper.
