AB Natural Kalimba
This simple Kalimba has been sitting around our home for a while and I kept thinking of sampling it. After my wife got really sick at the end of 2020 it has become a way for her to relax finally giving me the emotional push I needed to sample it.
This being my first time sampling an instrument I did my best to do it in the most detailed way possible. I sampled each note (going in thirds) with three dynamic layers and five round robins at 24bit 96kHz. The sound was captured with a Rode NT2-A as top mic and a Rode NT-5 as bottom mic.
Along with controls for each mic level, the Kontakt instruments has two knobs to control a Room and a Hall reverb (both convolution reverbs from Kontakt itself). The Hall can give it a nice “American Beauty” style sound, while the Room helps giving the Kalimba a space to live in since it was recorded completely dry.
I really hope you enjoy.

This is a really cool soft sounding kalimba. I wish it was a bit louder though.
