Sonic Zest has announced the latest addition to its tuned percussion range, a deep sampled Aluphone for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The sample library features 6 round robins (3 true and 3 borrowed).

The aluphone is a three octave chromatic array of aluminium bells typically hit with a mallet. The instrument sounds bell-like at the lower end and celeste-like at the higher end. If you need a new instrument for your melody making that isn’t instantly recognisable then the aluphone is for you!

The Aluphone is on sale for $16 USD until February 14th, 2021 (regular $32 USD). It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.
