Resonating Kalimba

Resonating Kalimba


I got this Kalimba for christmas and it kinda bothered me that I had to retune it everytime I wanted to leave the diatonic scale. So I decided to sample the instrument, first in C Major, then specific keys half-step up so that I could play it chromatically on my keyboard.
Next I figured it would be really cool to have the Kalimba resonate with a bunch of weird sounds, so I started experimenting with different instruments, drums and noises to find some interesting effects. Once I figured out how to realistically depict the release samples of a Kalimba, I packaged the whole thing in a Kontakt GUI and made it ready for use. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do ๐Ÿ™‚
