Smokey Loops has announced the release of Handpan, a free instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Handpan is a chromatic percussion instrument derived from Hang, an instrument which was initially invented and built by the German company PANArt Hangbau AG. Many handpan builders have entered the market with instruments that vary widely in material, manufacturing techniques, shape, sound and quality.
Regarding this software version, I don’t have any information about the exact model and the sampling process, if effects were used, how many round robins etc. All the specs found on Smokey Loops website are about the size and the number of included files, 122MB, respectively 33 files.
Handpan software instrument requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt, the free Player version isn’t supported. The download requires adding to cart and checkout.
