Balani is a 2 1/2 octave balafon (or balaphon) with small calabash resonators from Guinea.
This balafon has a very different scale compared to the european ones. That instrument originally plays a B major scale (20 notes), Acoustic Samples extended it (to 33 notes) for this library and also gave us the posibility to fine tune it.
- 230Mb, 967 samples.
- 12 Velocity layers for the sustain.
- 4 takes per note to avoid the machine gun effect (round robins).
- about 13 Velocities for the release.
- Both original and corrected tunings are available for a traditional or contemporary sound.
- Advanced UVI scripting
