Ben Burnes has announced the release of Discount Kalimba, a free virtual instrument for Kontakt featuring samples recorded from a damaged kalimba.
This has a wonderful off-key harmonic feel to it that makes things sound more organic and real.
Here’s what Ben told us about the free Kontakt instrument:
“The first sample pack I ever posted on Gumroad was a Kalimba and it felt fitting to resample the instrument and turn it into a Kontakt library!
I had a lot of fun learning how Kontakt programming works (and more than a little frustration figuring how Kontakt programming works). This library has 3 octaves of tines as well as a handful of percussive noises too”.
