[Video Review] Mountain Dulcimer by Embertone!

Get ready for the sweet sounds of the Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer by Embertone!

This is a unique and beautiful string instrument hailing from the Appalachian mountain region of the United States. It is a strummed instrument, similar to a zither or a guitar. The sound is bright, resonant, and gorgeous: play one note or chord and you instantly get a sweet, authentic bluegrass style sound, capturing the true heart and soul of American roots music.

This virtual instrument is meticulously sampled by Embertone and packed with features that make this an incredible package. The samples themselves sound pristine and 100% authentic, including sampled legato and multiple articulations and playing styles. There are a plethora of options for shaping the sound to fit your exact needs.

Enable the “strummer” option in the GUI and select from a number of pre-determined grooves, (or create your own with the built-in sequencer), which are performed as you hold down the key. Along with these intuitive performance options, you can perform single notes, played either with a pick or with fingers.

By default, hitting a note will play all three strings of the instrument at the same time, with the lower notes playing drones on the root note and the higher string playing your lead melody. It is a TON of fun to play around with this one. I’ve yet to experience a sample library which surpasses it in instantly instilling the soul of Appalachian music. While it focuses on the sound of American Roots, you can get a more European vibe depending on which scale you play. This is a must-have product for those who, like me, really love authentic and unique instruments

This virtual instrument one of Embertone’s flagship products from the Whiskey series. We hope you have enjoyed our blog tell us what do you think of this product?
