Even if the pitch of most of the sources is not stable, almost each instrument is tuned and playable with the keyboard. Each instrument features from 3 to 5 Round Robin samples and up to 3 velocity layers (usually cross-faded).
One of the main instruments is a sampled Wah Wah Tube (aka Vibratone): bell-like sound with a very long release and a dedicated control for overtones. There are a couple of sound designed patches derived from the original instruments along with Kontakt Multis ready to play.
