Previously available for Kontakt2 (see 7th July story below), Soniccouture have now released their KIM
sampled instrument in EXS24
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
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.
