Hi there, I'm wanting to make some Arabian music on little to no budget and I've read somewhere that there is an Arabize ReFill that people recommend. I don't suppose anyone happens to have the ReFill and could send it to me.

Failing that, I was wondering if anyone could give me any ideas on how to create a cheap Arabian collection of instruments.

Thanks in advance

Go to freesound.org and log in. Find some .wav or .aif sample by searching something like "arab". Make your own instrument with "mimic" by using the downloaded sounds. My last sounddesign using this search:
