ancient European instruments (500 to year 1000)
Hello, i have a idea for a soundfount (used in MIDI instruments) that
has ancient instruments (500 to year 900).
At present time i have wav files of:
Cow horn bugle (prillarhorn)
Sheep bone flute
Sami drum (frame Drum)
bukkehorn (ram/goat's horn)
Jorvik Pan flute
willow flute/sallow flute
näverlapp ("birch bark patch")
Brass/iron ring rattle ( these whas mounted on a staff )
Brummer/"Bull roarer" (yes, they did have these here too)
The Soundfount is to be released under General Public License when
Some of the instruments can be heard on youtube, this is a
