A Schunda Cimbalom from Budapest
New Cimbalom library in Live Pack & Universal formats from Detunized was recorded in Budapest.
The Cimbalom is a chordophone composed of a trapezoidal box with metal strings stretched across its top. It is commonly found throughout the Balkan states and in 1890 it was proclaimed the national instrument of Hungary.
Both libraries – Live Pack and Universal Format – contain two chromatically sampled versions of a Schunda Cimbalom model from Budapest.
Included are a close-miked soft version with pronounced hits from the spoon-shaped felt hammers and a bright version that reveals the brilliance of the instrument. Both versions are based on velocity layered multi-sample sets recorded stereo from top with adjustable mono signal from the bottom.
The Live Pack requires Live 8/9, 14 Instrument Racks, 1.2 GB, Price: € 15.00
The Universal Format is compatible with many software sample players. It contains 4x5 instrument patches (SFZ, NKI, SXT, EXS, FXP), 742 samples (24/48 kHz), 1.2 GB, Price: € 15.00
