The first version of this sample
library was originally created in April of 2004 in
conjunction with the release of the Hammered
Dulcimer Trilogy. Since then – Bo Clausen has
contributed some inspiring Kontakt scripting which
updates the Music Maker instrument to Version 2.
The Music Maker is a dulcimer
designed as a child’s toy musical instrument. It is
supplied with a guitar pick and some sheets that
slide underneath the string telling you which
strings to pluck from left to right. Featuring such
hits as “Darling Clementine” and “Aura Lee”, etc.
Version 2 features 5 x round-robins
per key, layer presets, (presets have examples saved
with the instrument), a filters page that has three
versions – 2-pole, 4-pole and 6-pole, an expanded
key range and much more.
