Soundiron tells us that Hopkin Instrumentarium: Rumba Boxes, for the Kontakt Player 6.1 or higher, is a creative assortment of large wooden bass kalimbas from the mind of master instrument builder Bart Hopkin. They say that this library features 2 unique handcrafted instruments with memorable shapes and mechanics. They have a richly acoustic essence that resounds brightly through each note.
A spokesperson told us, "You'll also find a wide spectrum of playable articulations, sound-design textures, pads, drones, and multiple microphone options to give you fresh musical inspiration. Along with effects, percussive taps, knocks, slaps and a variety of aux percussion. Rumba Boxes is perfect for soundtracks, film/video game scores and much more."
