Sound Dust has updated Dulcitone. Originally designed and manufactured in Scotland in the 1800s, and with allegedly only 2000 in existence, the Dulcitone is a portable keyboard that was made for missionaries in remote African village churches to help perk up hymn services. It has a basic piano action with spring loaded felt covered hammers striking small magnet shaped tuning forks. Its a bit like a Fender Rhodes electric piano without the electric bits, and has a very lovely woody, clonky glockenspiel/celesta kind of sound.
The new version adds a new 3 octave architecture with individual effects and controls per voice octave plus a new GUI with built in manual.
- Binaurally recorded for lovely 3d sound.
- 3 voice, 3 octave architecture.
- New sample start controllers.
