Is there any plug I can get to model a Sitar in LP7?

The line 6 Varix guitar has it, but I can't find one and would rather have a plug.

    The World Music Jam Pack by Apple has one for the
    EXS 24, which sounds really good. Just got through
    checking it out for you. I have been slowly going
    through the instruments in this Jam Pack. They have
    an excellentsound quality. The sitar intsrument
    itself sounds great up and down, there is one octive
    near the top of the instrument where the tone changes
    a little but never having played or owned a real one,
    I cant say if this is acoustically incorrect. It may be dead
    on. Knowing the quality of the Jam Pack instruments, I
    would have a hard time believing that Apple messed up
    on this one. This Jam Pack is well worth the $99.00.

    MOTU showed off it's new Virtual Instrument Plug In
    called Ethno Instrument as this years NAMM show. I am
    sure there is at least one sitar in there. For the price
    of $295.00, there better be. Dont know if it has been
    released yet. Comes with 4GB of stuff. Havent heard
    anything on the quality, knowing MOTU, it must be at
    least decent. Hope this helps. Phil

    Motu's Ethnic Instruments looks great.

    It comes with 4G of samples and an additional 4G of loops (similar to Rex loops).

    I hope it's a robust and memory friendly sampling AU instrument.

    When did that come out? I missed it, but it looks
    great.


    It was supposed to be out by Q1, but that didn't happen. It should be out shortly. Hopefully, there will be some good samples on the motu site. It looks like a great product, hopefully it has some really great sounds.

    I have not tried it in years, but depending on the type of bridge you have on your guitar, you can loosen the strings and put something flat under the strings (sitars get that twangy sound from the flat ivory bridge that the strings pass over), and then tuning back up.

    But then you lose out on the second set of "resonant" strings.
