Sonic Zest has announced a new Kontakt sample library in its series of octave tremolo instruments.

Cavaquinho Rain brings the sound of a Portuguese lute playing octave tremolos across the instrument’s full range.

What you get when you spread this across a keyboard and start playing chords is a rainstorm of tiny orchestral details that weave in and out beautifully. On top of octave tremolos, we’ve also include a normal plucked articulation.

This is perfect for capturing a melancholy, hazy summer vibe for your next soundtrack.

The instrument features plucked and octave tremolos articulations with multiple velocity layers and round robins.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher, Cavaquinho Rain is priced $16 USD. Use coupon code RAINSTORM to get a free copy of the recent Charango Storm with your purchase.
