Orange Tree Samples releases Grand Kalimba

Orange Tree Samples Grand Kalimba

Orange Tree Samples has announced the release of Grand Kalimba, a kalimba sample library for Kontakt.

Orange Tree Samples’ latest Kontakt release, Grand Kalimba is everything its name implies. It has three octaves of tines, giving you a large note range—most kalimbas have between 11 and 17 tines, but the Grand Kalimba has 37!

Behind the meticulously sampled kalimba is a powerful Kontakt interface, giving you complete control over the tone and performance of the instrument. The interface includes controls for microtonal composing, by allowing you to fine-tune the individual tines. You can even switch between a piano-style note layout and a kalimba note layout. You can also enable a double-tracked kalimba tone with a single button.

Grand Kalimba features

  • 880 MB of over 2,000 kalimba samples.
  • 8x round-robin alternating samples.
  • 3 velocity layers.
  • Sampled chromatically.
  • Tine mutes, including buzzing mutes.
  • Powerful interface giving you control over the tone and playability.

Grand Kalimba is available as a direct download for an introductory price of $29.95 USD (normally $39.95 USD) until September 25, 2009.
