Soundiron has introduced Hopkin Intrumentarium: Handsome Dan, which they describe as a unique creation from the mind of master instrument builder Bart Hopkin.

They say that this innovative zither features 14 strings with a magnetic pickup and clever system for capturing harmonic resonances in unplayed strings, resulting in a dreamy, ethereal tone that is perfect for creating floating, swelling sounds.

A spokesperson told us, "Explore the diverse sonic palette of Handsome Dan with meticulously sampled plucks, slides, and glisses with two stereo mic positions and customizable layers for endless possibilities. Dive into the array of custom FX presets and signature ambient content, crafted to unleash your creativity."

The library is built for the full version of Kontakt 6.2.2 or later.

Pricing and Availability:
Hopkin Instrumentarium: Handsome Dan is available now for $29 (Regular price: $39)
