  • The amplified one is worth it!

    Three kalimba instruments, but one of them is really worth your attention, since it's quite different than most kalimbas you will find out there. The "normal" one is a.. normal one, with the typical sound of a kalimba that I can't say I prefer over other patches. The coconut is a little more interesting for sure, but compared to the amplified one it sounds just like an old kalimba.

  • Pretty standard Kalimba sounds

    The coconut kalimba doesn't have very much sustain but it has a natural and percussive tone thats pretty cool. The main kalimba is actually the same kalimba i have and it sounds just like it. Its well recorded. I almost wanna say this could easily replace my real kalimba but there doesn't seem to be any round robins which is a bummer. Just one extra one would have made a big difference. The main kalimba patch is also very noisy. If this patch was denoised and maybe one or two round robins were added i think it would improve this instrument a lot.

  • 1 Kalimba, 2 Kalimba, Red Kalimba, Blue Kalimba

    Well, there isn't actually a red kalimba, but there is a blue one. The coconut kalimba has the least resonance, and is the most ethnic sounding as it has the most prominent overtones. It is well programmed. The amplified kalimba is quite fund and unique, if a little noisy. One supposes the noise is a result of the amplification process. It's still really playable. The blue Kalimba 1 definitely is in need of some noise reduction help, but it is tonally very pleasant.
