All Alan Vista instruments are good. I especially like the melodic ones (marimba, bells, crotales, xylophone, vibraphone). If he came out with an MBira, I would be in heaven. Freeware at its best.

With this specific one, though, I can only get the hi hats to work. What am I doing wrong?

thanks, .

Hi, thanks for your good words .

Concerning Cymbalistic, it uses multiple outputs so depending your DAW, you may have to active other channels (you can hear the HH because it is the default channel 1...)

One of the best sounding cymbal instruments on the market. I'm using it since years. Thanks Alan.
