The Wildmother’s Dulcimer Vol. II

A hammered dulcimer evoking forests and glades with evocative aleatoric playing as well as deeply-sampled standard articulations

The story

After a lot of consideration, I’ve decided to bring the second half of the Wildmother’s Dulcimer into Pianobook!

This collection is a healthy extension of the first. Like the first set of patches, it presents a mix of standard articulations with deep integrity and aleatoric, performative patches that achieve textures and colours impossible to otherwise program with MIDI.

This project was very near and dear to me and I hope you get even a fraction of that joy in putting this library to use <3

Included patches:
Hammer and Trem Combo (employs the sustain pedal for seamless articulation switching)
Plucked Harmonics
Bowed Tremolo
Cedar Splatterpaint
Meadow Chimes
Woodpecker (bonus percussion patch using the mallets on the body of the dulcimer)

  • The perfect sequel doesn't exi....

    Oh yes it does, and this is definitely it. Hunter has managed to create an incredible instrument, and an equally amazing and captivating second part. I am unable to comprehend the amount of work that has been done to this series, because everything is impeccable. The sounds, the design, the variety, or even the damn name of choice! ~ Everything is simply amazing, a true Pianobook Hall-of-Fame instrument.

  • The perfect sequel to the wildmother story.

    Brilliant concept and beautiful to write with! For me, the performance patches (Cedar Splatterpaint and meadow chimes) are super inspiring. The movement in the performances really give it life and character - well done! I'm very much looking forward to seeing/hearing what else you come up with :)

  • Heavenly

    Truly an instrument for angels to play and gave you the mission to make it terrestrial, which you did superbly!

  • This changed my mind

    Please watch the video. I love the way the samplist explains how much work he put into this and still is giving this away for free. But this is only the first chapter of the pianobook-story. The second chapter is the users having the possibilty to tip the samplists. With such a great instrument it is really an obligation. We can create something new, a new way of appreciating the work and the inspiration those artists - I think this term is more appropriate than the word samplist - give to us.
    Even small amounts can sum up. And it is a great way of saying thank you apart from writing a positive review.
    We share the same passion - music. We are not customers and sellers - we are friends. And every friendship needs respect. The tip, as small as it may be - is a sign of respect.
