Precisionsound has released MBira bva Zimbabwe. The MBira bva Zimbabwe is a twenty-two key MBira with added machachara—or "sizzler" to give a buzzing sound. The buzzing is traditionally important because it is believed to attract the ancestral spirits.

Precisionsound has deconstructed the sizzler from the original tone, so that the user can mix between the chromatic tone, the release noises, and the sizzler sound, all within the Kontakt interface. The user can also adjust the sizzler's decay independently, to find a balance between the tone of the MBira keys and the buzz of the sizzler.

The MBira bva Zimbabwe library was sampled in two velocity layers, and recorded four round robins for each of the chromatic metal keys, sizzlers, and release samples. The instrument was close-miked in stereo, and the library contains 252 24-bit WAV samples. The key range of the instrument is from B1 to C5.

Features:

  • 252 stereo 24-bit WAV samples.
  • Chromatic metal key notes and release noises.
  • Percussive "sizzler" samples from the MBira body.
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 3-5 with scripted interface.
  • 3 programs for NI Kontakt 2.
  • 3 programs for Logic EXS24.

Price: $20 via download. A DVD version costs an additional $11. All formats are included. Full version of Kontakt is required, this library does NOT work with the free Kontakt Player.
