Orange Tree Samples has released Grand Kalimba, a new Kalimba Sample Library for Kontakt. It has three octaves of tines, giving you a large note range. Most kalimbas have between 11 and 17 tines but the Grand Kalimba has 37.
Behind the meticulously sampled kalimba is the powerful Kontakt interface, giving you complete control over the tone and performance of the instrument. The interface includes controls for microtonal composing, by allowing you to fine-tune the individual tines. You can even switch between a piano-style note layout and a kalimba note layout. You can also enable a double-tracked kalimba tone with a single button.
Full features include:
- 880 MB of over 2,000 kalimba samples.
- 8x round-robin alternating samples.
- 3 velocity layers.
- Sampled chromatically.
- Tine mutes, including buzzing mutes.
- Powerful interface giving you control over the tone and playability.
Grand Kalimba is available as a direct download for an introductory price of $29.95 (normally $39.95) until September 25th.
