Free samples – Hugh Tracey Treble Kalimba

Another little freebie for you all. My wife bought me this Hugh Tracey kalimba (African Thumb Piano) for my birthday a few months ago. It’s got a gorgeous tone.

So I’ve mic’d it up and multisampled it. My box was tuned to G, but I’ve spread the samples out over the natural range of the instrument so you get 2 full octaves.

Thanks Spe3D and dusted william for the soundfont conversions.

    i know this instrument since i was a child in africa, i can tune it and play, electrical or non electric, is fan to learn easy to understand it.

  2. Rory, thanks for making these. Any chance you could post these in Kontakt format of better yet just the plain wav files?

  3. Rory,
    Are there any restrictions on using these in a commercial release? I’d like to add a bit of them to my album project currently in the final stages.

  4. Rozzer, these Kalimba sounds are better than the kit that comes with the Native Instruments Maschine–and that’s not knocking NI, either. I’ve downloaded this kit multiple times since 2007-8. Amazing sound quality–thank you!

  5. Thanks!
    I have a kalimba but only on penta mode and I’m sure your recording is better than mine (I use a bluebird plugged on an edirol UA101, no preamp)

    I’m looking at every page on this website, I really enjoy.

    Much respect
