Sounds of Polynesia is a wonderful and unique virtual instrument for discovering the rich sounds of the South Pacific. The sample library contains recordings of a host of indigenous instruments along with village ambience tracks from Gabagaba in Central Province of Papua New Guinea and Munum village in the Morobe Province and spoken and chanted vocals. Most of the instruments featured come from Papua New Guinea, a nation in the western region of the South Pacific Ocean. It is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world with over 800 languages and over 3000 dialects.

The loops map out onto individual keys in a construction kit format and the "beat machine" synchronizes each multi-track loop to the host sequencer. Also included is sync delay. Best of all, no sampler is required. Sounds of Polynesia includes a plug-in audio engine/interface from Native Instruments, based on their INTAKT virtual sampler and which is specifically designed for rhythmic loop playback and manipulation.
