O'Malley's Irish Whistles is a sample library for Kontakt 4.2 and higher. The professional edition of the library includes four different whistle sample sets performed by Mimi O'Malley, these are in the key of D, C, Bb, and a Low D whistle.

All of the whistles include multiple round robin recordings for all articulations as well as a simulated round robin mode that uses a sample borrowing technique to provide an even greater number of variations.

The instruments in this library make use of Kontakt's advanced scripting language to provide a very efficient way to switch between different articulations without the need to use key switches. Fully customisable key switches are included however for when you need more precise control.

The legato system employed by this library is able to determine when you are playing polyphonically and automatically switch between legato mode and polyphonic sustain mode. This system also includes a retrigger feature that allows you to perform trills of any interval, duration, and tempo as well as many other Irish whistle ornaments.

Bends and slides are techniques that have helped define the sound of the Irish whistle. O'Malley's Irish whistle provides two methods for performing authentic glides that you can harness to enrich your music.
