Tonehammer releases Kalimba for Kontakt


Tonehammer has announced the release of a new Kalimba for Kontakt.

Kalimba (Thumb Piano) is a tuned percussion instrument and a variant of the African Mbira. It's essentially a hollow wooden box with metal keys attached to it. The instrument is plucked with thumbs and the wooden box helps increase the resonance of the metal keys. Tonehammer say they took it to the next level - recording the Kalimba in four different locations for ultimate user freedom. The user can choose between dry (close-mic'd in a small, dead room), wet (small hall), wetter (big hall / close mics) and wettest (big hall - far mics).

Tonehammer Kalimba Facts:

  • 3 Locations (Dry, Small Bright Hall, Large Dark Hall), 4 total microphone positions (Dry, Small Hall Far mics, Big Hall Close Mics, Big Hall Far Mics).
  • Sample resolution: 44.1Khz/16Bit.
  • 4 x 2 instrument patches (untuned / tuned), 1,036 samples, 609 MB installed, 202 MB download.
  • Format(s): Kontakt and .wav.
  • Kalimba Read-Me (.pdf) instruction with keymaps and pictures.

Pricing & Availability

Kalimba has an MSRP of $25. Native Instruments Kontakt 2.2.4+ required.
