Production Voices' The Halfling is a fantasy inspired virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.7 and higher (not for Kontakt Player) that combines both hifi and lofi samples to create otherworldly sounds suitable for game composers, film composers, sound designers, music producers, pianists and musicians.

The Halfling starts with a Hobbit-sized upright piano and extents into a soundscape instrument that includes the spellbound sounds of a Hobbit or Halfling. The 4 stereo microphone perspective upright piano alone is the centrepiece in this unearthly sample library, but the piano samples are just the beginning. Inspired by Production Voices own Death Piano, The Halfling is tortured, demented and beautifully flawed in a similar vein, but this time with a new sample set that includes throat singing samples, Wurlitzer 200A lid off, thumb piano, lo fi choir samples, wine glasses, bowls, pipe organ, toy piano, electric pianos and other oddities. All samples are new content recorded for this library. The samples are used as building blocks to create piano and soundscape oddities.

The library is 12 GB in size after lossless compression and comes with 300+ snapshots.
