Precisionsound has released Finnish Concert Kantele for Kontakt, EXS24 and HALion. They tell us that the sound of the Kantele is unique and useful in many music genres, both for strumming and arpeggio style playing and melodies.
The Finnish Concert Kantele Sample Set is a 36 stringed (A#0 to A#5) concert Kantele recorded in stereo in 4 velocity layers and 4 round robin layers per velocity layer. Precisionsound recorded 3 types of articulations/picking styles:
  • Sustained (4 velocity layers, 4 round robin layers)
  • Damped (4 velocity layers, 4 round robin layers)
  • Sticks (1 velocity layer, 2 round robin layers)
The tonal range of the programs is B0-C6. All 1160 stereo samples were recorded at 24 bits, and 44.1 sample rate. The total size of the library uncompressed is 2.56GB.
