Icebreaker Audio releases "Akebono: Plucked" for Kontakt

Icebreaker Audio has announced the release of Akebono: Plucked, a sample-based emulation of a rare suitcase instrument from Japan.

Originally released some time in the mid to late '80s, Akebono re-creates a number of traditional Japanese instrument sounds using a combination of samples and digital synthesis.

Using a custom script engine, Akebono: Plucked mimics not only the sound of the original, but the performance style as well.

Key features include:

  • All 9 plucked-string instrument sounds chromatically sampled at 24-bit 48kHz.
  • An easy-to-use, custom interface.
  • Convolution based emulation of the original speaker at various microphone positions.
  • Authentic emulation of the original performance controls.
  • Two additional articulations per sound, accessed via key-switches.
  • Compatible with Kontakt 4 & 5.

Akebono: Plucked is available now for £5 ($8).
