The World Series Kalimba script feautres intelligent round robin selection, which forces as much variation in the performance as possible. 

The Kalimba we sampled has 17 tines; two octaves of C minor pentatonic with 4 duplicate tines, G3, Bb3, C4 and Eb4. The instrument alternates between duplicate tines and shows which tine is currently being played. 

Each microphone perspective and the FX layer can be routed to specific outputs, allowing for more flexible mixing. 


The WANDER control randomly shifts the panning or alters the pitch of notes individually.


Choose from different impulse responses to add REVERB


Adjust the ADSR Envelope to shape the notes.

The PAN LOCK unifies the panning of all microphones.  
And each mic position can be routed to a different Kontakt output.
