Thai Dulcimer For EXS24


Previously available for Kontakt2 (see 7th July story below), Soniccouture have now released their KIM sampled instrument in EXS24 format.
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.
Soniccouture tell us that the Kim was sampled at 24 bit /44.1 and contains 184 MB - 137 separate unlooped samples. Each note was sampled individually with 4 velocity layers, twice, to give an extremely natural, expressive response.
