Soniccouture Release Kim

Soniccouture have released their first download only product - Kim.
The Kim is a type of dulcimer or zither from Thailand, and is related to the Chinese yangqin. It is sometimes spelled khim. The Kim consists of a flat soundbox with 42 wire strings stretched across in 14 sets of 3. The courses are struck with two thin bamboo mallets with soft leather tips. This extremely unusual instrument can add an atmospheric edge to all kinds of production, from film scoring to ambient soundscaping to folk.
The Kim was sampled at 24 bit /44.1 and contains 184 MB - 137 seperate unlooped samples. Each note was sampled individually with 4 velocity layers, twice, to give an extremely natural, expressive response.
The Kim Kontakt instrument comes with a dedicated KSP script that enables the signature tremolo sound of the Kim when key C1 is held down. The mod wheel controls the velocity and random nature of the tremolo.
