Kelfar Technologies, in collaboration with AL FANNY TRADING Roland Egypt, is proud to introduce the new Roland E-A7 Middle Eastern Sound Library Expansion Pack.
Roland E-A7 Middle Eastern Sound Library
This new expansion pack offers a variety of Middle-Eastern sounds and live-backing styles (live-grooves) to add to your Roland E-A7. Al Fanny collaborated with Mr. Karim El-Far of Kelfar Technologies to develop and program professional Middle-Eastern sounds and live-backing styles recorded by a live band to create the expansion pack.
A Game Changer in the History of the Roland Oriental Arrangers
The new expansion pack is just the latest in a long and celebrated history of innovation in the world of music. In the 1980s, Al Fanny created the Roland E-40 Oriental sounds and styles, which became the standard of every Middle Eastern musician. Throughout the world, and especially in Egypt, the sounds and styles of the Roland E-40 Oriental became the standard for songs. It’s likely that you have heard many songs created using the Roland E-40 Oriental sounds and styles. Now, the expansion pack brings even more live-backing styles to choose from for your composing, arranging, and performance projects.

With the advancement of technology in the new Roland Arrangers and the onboard 128 RAM in the Roland E-A7, Roland Egypt is bringing to you new Sounds and Humanize Styles. The new sounds and styles were developed as was requested by our loyal Al Fanny Roland Egypt customers.

Live Band and Humanize grooves The included humanize grooves in the expansion pack were recorded and mastered in stereo by a real Middle-Eastern band. Each live-backing style has four intros, variations, fills (breaks), and endings.
The Al Fanny sounding engineering team carefully chose the best classical and modern humanize grooves aimed at the Egyptian and Middle-Eastern market. To make the Humanize grooves more realistic, the chord progressions were programmed as Major, Minor, and Major 7. Each fill (break) has a live slide bass guitar.
