Cinematique Instruments Strings Kantele WAV NKI | 19.4 Mb
The Kantele is a traditional plucked string instrument of the zitherfamily native to Finland and Estonia which, in turn, is part of the Baltic Psalteries instrument group. The KANTELE has a distinctive bell-like sound and diatonic tuning. Our Kantele has five strings tuned in G-A-B-Cґand Dґ, but we made a Kontakt patch to play it in chromatic tuning. We recorded every single note in sustained and staccato mode in two recording sessions with different mic-settings, giving us two different sample sets. Each note is in at least 2 layers, most in 3 or 4 and is mapped to one octave (chromatic). We added an ambience to the sustained notes which can be mixed in by pressing the sustain pedal.
