FluffyAudio has announced the release of the third installment in the Rarities series of instrument libraries for Kontakt.

Khim delivers the sounds of the stringed musical instrument derived from the Mesopotamian or Persian Santur.

The sample library features 5 articulations and 3 microphone positions, modhweel controller filter cutoff and dynamic volume, velocity control curve, and 12 reverb presets.

The history of Khim meets many countries: first Persia, then China, then brought to Thailand and finally introduced to Lao and Cambodia. It derives from the Persian santur and is similar to the hammered dulcimer or cimbalom. The Khim is made up of fourteen string triplets, each triplet composing what is called a note. It’s played with two flexible bamboo sticks with soft leather beater at the tips to produce a soft tone, the sound is brilliant but also very engaging, try to believe!

Khim is free to download for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.

FluffyAudio has also launched its 2022 Summer Sale, offering up to 50% off on its products through August 31st, 2022.
