A bodhran is a type of frame drum. Cipin is the name of the beater.

I can't really see voting on this because there are many instruments I'd like to see done that don't really fit. Things like European instruments that are somewhat forgotten such as different styles of Lute which was sadly not included in RA.

I think if they did record these, they would end up being stand alone rather than addons to existing libraries and they aren't really "Hollywood" type instruments.

There are also lots of basic samples of world instruments, some of which Soundsonline sells. I would certainly like to see more libraries like Silk, where there are performances as well as samples.

Good world instrument libraries are useful for adding some ethnic authenticity to a score. But as it is less likely that the user will be familiar with the playing techniques of such instruments, there is an opportunity here for offering comprehensive examples of the way these instruments are normally played, so that they can be used without having to spend lots of time studying their technicalities.

Yup, that's why I agree with flickerflix.

Performances only would be very limiting on true creativity in my opinion, but it is an important learning tool. Learn it, and then use regular, non-performance samples to create your own!
They did it with some of the instruments on SD3, where the higher keys play performances so you can get an idea of the usual grooves these types of drums play. Really helpful stuff.
