Description

The Daf (or Dap) is a large Persian frame drum used in popular and classical music. The frame is usually made of hardwood with many metal ringlets attached by hooks, and the membrane is usually goatskin. The Daf is used mostly in the Middle East and Central Asia, to accompany singing and performances on the tambur, violin, oud, saz, and kanun.

Dafs can be played to produce highly complex and intense rhythms, causing one to enter a trance and reach an ecstatic state. For this reason, they have always been connected with religion. In Iran, Sufis use Dafs during their spiritual chanting rituals.

Frame drums are most ancient type of musical instruments, with a simple structure yet a compelling sound. They have different sizes, and in traditional rituals the larger drums are played mainly by men, while the medium size drums are played mainly by women.

Our sampled Persian Daf was handmade in Iran by a master craftsman. It is quite large, with a diameter of fifty-five centimeters. Our Daf has seventy-two hooks, each of which is attached to a chain of four ringlets.
We recorded all the kinds of sounds you would expect from such a beautiful instrument: dums, teks, snaps, stopped hits, chains, rolls and scratches.

Persian Daf features:

  • 123 unique hits, rolls, scratches and shakes
  • 4 round robins and 4 velocity layers for all skin hits
  • 618 stereo 24-bit WAV samples
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 3+ with scripted performance controls and GUI
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 2
  • 1 program for Logic EXS24
The total size of the library compressed is 246 MB.
