This instrument is pretty much exactly what its name suggests: a fake (synthesized) dulcimer although I do hope it sounds like a real one. It is an instrument I particularly appreciate, so I tried to make my own in Vital and was suprisingly really happy with how it turned out.
There are two articulations: one shot and tremolo. The Vital preset files are included for both, along with the sampled versions.
Unfortunately I had to make the Tremolo version using SFZ, because Decent Sampler doesn’t yet support crossfades sa far as I’m aware.
I also included an impulse response (sampled in Vital) for some additional splosh.

Put this one in you arsenal of sounds...
If you have Vital, which you should because its a great free synth. This is a patch worth downloading. A rounded dulcimer like sound that within the Vital interface is easily tweakable. The tremolo patch is particularly good!
Simple Yet Effective
A simple yet effective "Dulcimer" type sound. Not much in the GUI department, but the inclusion of an attack and release knob is greatly appreciated.
Velocity based sound. Nice!
For me its not the best thing in the world. Maybe that is because the Dulcimer is not one of my favorite instruments. But I think the patch sound realy great.The sound behaves "realisticly" on velecity. And thats with a free Synth! Try to remake that in Pigments. I think the sampler sounds better.
