The “Sansula” is a Kalimba mounted on a membrane giving it a prolonged softer tone. It is patented and made by Hokema. The tuning is normally a-minor but can be slightly changed.

I recorded all single tones with an audio-technica P48. The available tones are a, c’, e’, f’, g’, a’, b’, c”, e”. The wav files can be found in the zip archive.

For your convenience I created a Kontakt4 instrument. If you have NI Kontakt4 (or the free player) you just have to load the nki file.

The mp3 preview is a quick improvisation with a synth background - played with the Sansula, not with the samples. The wah-wah effect is made by moving the instrument.

It sounds a bit like a vibraphone but probably somebody can still need it.

add: the very wrong tuning of the f is corrected in the samples (pitch corrected with melodyne)
