Originally designed and manufactured in Scotland in the 1800's, and with allegedly only 2000 in existence the Dulcitone is a portable keyboard that was made for missionaries to hump around remote African village churches to help perk up hymn services. It has a very basic piano action with spring loaded felt covered hammers striking small magnet shaped tuning forks. It's a bit like a Fender Rhodes electric piano without the electric bits, and has a very lovely woody, clonky glockenspiel/celesta kind of sound.

This is your chance to to play my lovingly sampled 150 year old antique Dulcitone in all its glory. 70megs, 3 velocity layers and some fancy programming but without the slightly iffy forks and sticking keyboard.

Features include:

  • 24 dulcitone presets that take advantage of the 3 pages of scripting.
  • 4 octave architecture with control of volume, pan, ADSR and delay per octave group.
  • Note on and note off "thump".
  • 69 specially made convolution reverb impulses from real spaces, expensive hardware, and some less obvious sources.
  • Round robin sample swapping for extra realism.
  • MIDI timing jitter for even more realism.
  • Some lovely pictures of the instrument herself.
  • There's even an instruction manual.

This version is built in Kontakt 4.2.4 so is fully compatible with all versions of Kontakt 5. But you need the full version, not the player.
