Man Makes Noise has released The Jumalauta, a custom string instruments library for Kontakt 5. They say:
What do you get when you take a piece of scrap board, a rock you stubbed your toe into, a twig your kid handed you to hold and a spare guitar string? You get an ugly little instrument that is virtually unplayable in real life: The Jumalauta.
The Jumalauta is a fretless single string instrument with the sole purpose of sounding great as a virtual instrument and sound source for sound design. This instrument has been already been used in other Man Makes Noise libraries.
The Jumalauta contains three basic articulations (plucked, hammered and picked), designed pads, percussions and bonus underlay patches made with sounds from a Moog Sirin and Arturia Microfreak.
Price: 15€ (excluding VAT where applicable). An introduction price of 10€ is available until the 10th of March 2021.
The Jumalauta requires the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 and higher. It will not function in the free Player version.
