This free sample library was originally created in April of 2004 in conjunction with the release of the Hammered Dulcimer Trilogy. Since then - Bo Clausen has updated this instrument with Kontakt scripting which takes this instrument to a whole new level yet again in Version 4. Make sure Kontakt 4 is updated at least to version 4.2.4 or higher. If you already have a previous version, you still should download the entire V4 package.
The Music Maker is a dulcimer designed as a child's toy musical instrument. It is supplied with a guitar pick and some sheets that slide underneath the string telling you which strings to pluck from left to right. Featuring such hits as Darling Clementine and Aura Lee, etc.
