Intuitive, versatile and clean sounds

I recreated the kalimba song from the last airbender tv show with this, and it’s a solid plug-in that’s compatible with Ableton as well. It’s super easy to use with a ton of options for modulating and mixing the sounds and feedback of the kalimba. Sounds incredibly pretty and natural as well!

Very creative sound!

Love the presets, especially the diverse range in the tones! I can get a perfect Kalimba sound but also create a not-Kalimba sound. Super creative!
