Kalimba Kluster

Add sparkle to your score with a Kalimba that evolves and changes in your ears....

The story

Over Winter Break, I finally got my hands on the full version of Kontakt 6. After countless Kontakt videos and tutorials, I recorded my Kalimba. The result? Kalimba Klusters. Kalimba Klusters is a collection of Kalimba notes, spaced out over time. Sparkling textures and pitches create a nostalgic sound. The instrument contains 4 dynamic layers with 3, slightly different undulating patterns. Control the instrument with a Cutoff, Reso, Delay, Flutter and Reverb knob. At the core, Kalimba Klusters is an experiment. A new approach to a common instrument. A new tool for your collection. I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave feedback that will be used to fix current and future instruments.

  • A sweet, swarmish Kalimba

    If you are looking for some very quick atmosphere with the sound signature of a Kalimba, this might be the deal. This insturment offers the Kalimba sound we all love, but with a bouncing delay and a pitch-shifting flutter option. Unfortunately you can't separate the delay from the samples, but at least you can adjust the timing via the provided knob. All the options combined offer a very dreamy and chaotic sound that might be the thing you were looking for.

    Note: The samples are included twice in the download pack, so you can delete the ones outside the Instrument folder.
