Man Makes Noise has announced the release of a new Kontakt instrument library called The Jumalauta.

What do you get when you take a piece of scrap board, a rock you stubbed your toe into, a twig your kid handed you to hold and a spare guitar string? You get an ugly little instrument that is virtually unplayable in real life: The Jumalauta.

The Jumalauta is a fretless single string instrument with the sole purpose of sounding great as a virtual instrument and sound source for sound design.

The instrument has been already been used in the Puro, but now it is presented it as an independent instrument.

Created for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher, the sample library contains three basic articulations (plucked, hammered and picked), designed pads, percussions and bonus underlay patches made with sounds from a Moog Sirin and Arturia Microfreak.

The Jumalauta is available at an intro price of 10 EUR until March 10th, 2021. The regular price is 15 EUR ex. VAT where applicable.
