Spitfire Presents the Definitive Cimbalom Library

The cimbalom is a concert hammered dulcimer: a type of chordophone composed of a large, trapezoidal box with metal strings stretched across its top. It is a musical instrument popularized in Hungary and commonly found throughout central and eastern Europe. The cimbalom is played by striking two beaters against the strings. The steel treble strings are arranged in groups of 4 and are tuned in unison. The bass strings which are over-spun with copper, are arranged in groups of 3 and are also tuned in unison.

The cimbalom has been used in many film scores over the years famously John Barry used it in the title theme for the film The Ipcress File, as well as in the main theme of the 1971 TV series The Persuaders!. But it's most famous, and coolest use was probably on the 1994 Portishead track "Sour Times". Aside from being an amazing featured or solo instrument. It is also great as a textural element; doubling pianos and other tuned percussion instruments, it's particularly interesting in unison with pizzicato passages. A fantastic new colour for your palette and with this level of deep sampling, something that can sit proud and exposed in your mixes and honestly and realistically express the emotion of your composition.

Spitfire are delighted to present Greg Knowles playing his Grand Cimbalom in the hall at Air Studios, London, one of the greatest recording studios in the world. Sampled with 4 round robins and 2 dynamics as single hits, and of course the characteristic tremolando. Options exist to use 'Piano' sustain pedal style, or the reverse authentic 'Cimbalom' style (where pedal up is the ringing out sustained sound). Recorded through the finest mics via exclusive Neve "Montserrat" Pre-Amps and Prism AD converters. The Spitfire Cimbalom joins our Harpsichord and Harp as the definitive VI in its class.

The library is presented with numerous microphone positions which you can not only mix and blend to fit the application youre working on, but also automate for dramatic shifts in focus and depth. They're also fully output assignable for surround and 5.1 use. As mentioned before the definitive range is designed to fit in with Spitfire's entire orchestral canon, including Albion, BML and some of the Signature Range as if they're in the same room together!

GUI

We like instruments that just open and play. So we have worked for many years to create a simple to use and uniform GUI so you learn one, you learn them all. With improvements being made constantly we frequently update the whole range to maintain uniformity in our interfaces across our entire range.

A deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings.


How many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave. How would you like memory to be organised alongside pitch options and how velocity works.
