Wrongtools has introduced its upcoming Kontakt instrument library Hakkebrett, a collection of quirky, delicately hammered zithers that offer brilliantly clear bright overtone registers and a glimmering sound.

The main patch is the hammered zither patch. It’s deep sampled with 5×3 full sustained tones on each string (5 dynamic layers and 3 round robins). In addition to a second zither, and variations.

We recorded two different zithers, and put them both in the same patch on different tracks, for you to blend. By working with two different zithers and tuning strings up and down, we managed to get a wide tonal range out of these instruments.

  • Deep sampled zither recorded with the finest equipment and mics.
  • 1039 ncw samples.
  • Up to 5 velocity layers x 3 round robins..
  • Resizable Kontakt window.
