Product Information

'Middle Eastern Instruments' is an enigmatic collection of traditional Ney, Setar and Tar recordings. Use these samples to sculpt an authentic Middle Eastern soundtrack for film and television or get experimental and set your commercial releases apart from the rest. The only limit for these samples is your imagination.


World music instruments have been used to amazing effect in mainstream Pop tracks by the likes of Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Major Lazer, Justin Timberlake & Shakira. Use the Adlibs to add a touch of mystique to your tracks or embrace the Middle Eastern sound by deploying one of the looped riffs into your production.

The Producer Loops team recorded these unique instruments on location in the Middle East, capturing every nuance of each instrument and utilising the talents of three incredibly skilled traditional musicians.

The Instruments:

The Setar is a stringed instrument used in Folk and Classical music throughout Iran. The drone string on the Setar adds an almost hypnotic quality to the sounds produced by this traditional instrument from the lute family.

The Iranian Tar is a close cousin of the Setar but has a fuller presence due to its three drone strings. The figure-of-8 shaped sound bowl on this instrument gives it a resonance like no other.

The wind instrument heard within the demo is the Ney, a flute which is popular throughout all regions of the Middle East. Pair a simple drum beat with a Ney loop and you'll instantly transport your listeners to a souk. This is the quintessential sound of the Middle East.
 
No MIDI Included:
 
These instruments were recorded live, in all their glory, so this pack does not include MIDI files.

Dry/Wet Loops:
 
The 'wet' files contain all of the effects processing heard in the audio demos, meaning you can just 'drag and drop' to instantly get your track up and running. 'Dry' files are also included, allowing you to create your own effects mix.
 
Unlooped Riffs/Tails:
 
This sample library also comes with unlooped/tail versions of the wet files, allowing you to end a phrase with the decay of the reverb/delay applied to the loop, another "Producer Loops" exclusive product feature.

Royalty-Free:

All recordings sold in Middle Eastern Instruments are 100% royalty-free, meaning you can use these sounds in your commercial and non-commercial recordings without any further costs.

Press Reviews

I hold my hands up and admit I'd never heard of...

by Dave Colville, May 2018

I hold my hands up and admit I'd never heard of them before and thought 'Setar' was 'Sitar' spelt wrong. Nope! Not at all and, according to Google, the word "Tār" means string and the word "Se" means three in Persian and for this reason "Setār" means a stringed instrument with three strings. Setar is a plucked string instrument and and the right index finger nail is used as a plectrum to pluck or strum the instrument.

Facinating indeed and these sounds really give you a flavour of the Middle East simply because the Producer Loops team 'recorded these unique instruments on location in the Middle East, capturing every nuance of each instrument and utilising the talents of three incredibly skilled traditional musicians.'

All the sounds from Producer Loops are always key and tempo labelled and these beauties are no exception and have a superb range from A to G with lots inbetween and roll along at 60 to 125bpm so you can add the sounds to lots of genres simply to make your track stand out with 'something completely different'.
