This paper offers details of the recording techniques, editing processes, and subsequent analyses of the wave samples of traditional Malaysian musical instruments. The samples are used for a multi-media project. One of the project's outcomes includes a bank of digital samples of the indigenous instruments, for musicians and composers to use with conventional triggering devices such as keyboards, computers or drum triggers. The paper also includes a discussion of Malaysian instrument classification and brief analyses of contemporary Malaysian musical culture.
