A kalimba is a western interpretation of an African thumb piano. As with my other sample libraries, I have done my best to make the basis of my virtual kalimba be as faithful as possible to a performance with the real thing. However, I've also made it possible to stretch beyond what is physically possible and manipulate the sound in a variety of different ways, hence the play on the word "kaleidoscope".

There is a free version available.
