The renaissance of a classic

The lute was brought into the modern age by the sample pros from Cinematique Instruments. Deeply sampled and combined with smart playing techniques, it provides you with the unique sound of a bygone era.

In-depth sampled lute with 8 courses

Unique sound palette for score or experimental music

Compatible with virtually every DAW

Created by Cinematique Instruments

Intimate sound, intelligently designed

The intimate sound of the lute is also driven by the behaviour of the course strings. Thanks to the adjustable parameters for flam and detune, you can easily vary the time and the tune in relation to the original string. This will add amazing colours and character into your compositions.

The Lute was carefully recorded in minor thirds on all the 13 strings. Combined with three dynamic layers and four round robin variations, you have an excellent instrument at your fingertips. And the best is: you can play the same note in different hand positions –– just by using the modulation wheel –– that gives you a more natural feel while playing.
