Sonokinetic has released Celesta for Kontakt 4 and 5.
Here's what they say: "One of our personal favorite instruments of all time, the Celesta (or Celeste), has been capturing people's imaginations for centuries and will continue to do so for many years to come. The instrument really has a magical sound and every time we happen to cross paths with a real one and open the lid it amazes us how inviting this instrument is to play. Of course, most of them are a bit off pitchy, the keys don't always react the way you'd want them to, but that adds to the beauty. You cannot force this instrument where it doesn't want to go but it'll always take you in an interesting direction."
