Detunized releases Schunda Cimbalom Budapest Live Pack & Universal Format library


Developer: Detunized

cimbalomDetunized has announced the release of Schunda Cimbalom Budapest, a new library available in Ableton Live and universal formats.

The Cimbalom is a chordophone composed of a trapezoidal box with metal strings stretched across its top. It is commonly found throughout the Balkan states and in 1890 it was proclaimed the national instrument of Hungary.

Both libraries – Live Pack and Universal Format – contain two chromatically sampled versions of a Schunda Cimbalom model from Budapest.

Included are a close-miked soft version with pronounced hits from the spoon-shaped felt hammers and a bright version that reveals the brilliance of the instrument. Both versions are based on velocity layered multi-sample sets recorded stereo from top with adjustable mono signal from the bottom.
