|The kalimba, known as a thumb piano in the West, is a lamellaphone of Eastern Central and South West Africa.
There are a variety of similar instruments by other names (eg. Africa. The kalimba is made from a box or calabash, covered with a flat wooden top and a number of wooden or metal keys. Often the metal keys were made from old spoon handles, bicycle spokes or spring wire that were cut and hammered to the desired shape.
The keys are plucked with the thumbs, or with combinations of thumbs and fingers. Traditionally used to accompany singing in Africa, the kalimba was relatively easy to play, and became popular in the West for instrumental music. However, the sound of the Kalimba Test is now found on most digital samplers so the real instrument is starting to disappear.
The instrument pictured is from Kenya.
We call the space "The Bunker", because that’s exactly what it really is - a deep underground World War 1-era artillery bunker. You can also shape the room decay time easily with integrated Release control, turning the massive hall into a tight room with the twist of a knob.
Each tine was sampled with up to 11 dynamic velocity layers with up to 10X round-robin variations each to give these instruments a truly life-like sound and playability. The Kalimba library features 62 unique soundscapes, pads, atmospheres and drones to the library, each crafted by manipulating the source recordings.
Their shared sonic character makes them an ideal accompaniment to the acoustic portion of the Kalimba library.
All of it is wrapped up in a customizable performance control system, with lots of sound-shaping tools, arpeggiation sequencing and flexible DSP effects, such as convolution, EQ, resonant filter, chorus, flanger, phaser, delay, amp and speaker simulation, distortion and compression. This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.1 or later.
Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument / software sampler platform. Check out screenshots of our custom graphical user interface for Kontakt in the image gallery above. They provide a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library. However, the sample directories are fully accessible to allow user customization, import and mapping into other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.

The full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt version 5.1 (or later) is required to use .nki instrument presets included in this library.
The free Kontakt "Player" and "Add Library" import process do not support this standard open-format Kontakt library. Windows XP or higher. Mac OSX 10.6 or higher. Dual Core CPU, 2 GB System Ram, SATA or SSD hard drive recommended for this library. HOW TO ORDER ?

If the oldest "automobile" includes tractors, the oldest known self propelled vehicle is the 1769 Cugnot Steam Tractor. The oldest self propelled passenger carrying vehicle that is still in working order is the 1875 Grenville Steam Carriage.
When was the first automobile made and when was it made?
The worlds first practical automobile was invented and built by Karl Benz in Germany 1886. It was a 3 wheeled single cylinder powered vehicle he called the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. How was the Jewish scriptures made and who made them and what are they? The Hebrew scriptures are called the TANAKH..
They comprise the Torah, the five books of Moses, the holy text read in Synagogue; Prophets; and Writings.. Traditional Jewish belief is that G-d gave the Torah directly to the Jews at Mt Sinai.
Indeed, this national revelation is the official start of Judaism. Over a million Jews heard G-d's voice.
No other faith originated with such a mass experience of G-d.. Moses wrote down the Torah, and Orthodox Jews believe G-d dictated them to Moses. Less Orthodox Jews may instead believe that Moses himself authored much of the Torah; he was an educated man, having been brought up in Egypt at the court of the Pharoah..
Some Jews believe that there were several authors of the Torah, and support for this is found in the fact that there are some three of four different writing styles to be found within the Torah.. When Christians refer to the 'old testament' they are NOT referring to the Jewish bible.
The OT is a Church-edited, wrongly organised and often MIStranslated dilution of the Tanakh. No Jew reads the OT.
We study the Tanakh, usually in the original Hebrew.. Who made the Suez canal made? The Suez Canal was first built over 2,000 years ago.. In 1859, the Suez Canal was built again, by the Universal Suez Ship Canal Company, and took 10 years to build.
The first ship to pass through the canal did so on 17 February 1867 ; Giuseppe Verdi wrote the famous opera Aida for this ceremony.. The canal made is possible to easily transport goods across the world. The canal also allowed Europeans to travel to East Africa, and this area was soon controlled by European powers..
The success of the canal encouraged the French to start building the Panama Canal ..
After the Six Day War in 1967, the canal remained closed until June 5, 1975. A UN peacekeeping force has been stationed in the Sinai Peninsula since 1974, to avoid more wars.. About 15,000 ships pass through the canal each year, which is about 14% of world shipping. Each ship takes up to 16 hours to cross the canal..

These cells are made of proteins, fats, and other such constructs.These are made of molecules, which are themselves made of atoms. Our organs are, in turn, made of cells, which multiply and die offas necessary.
Because of this growing of cells and dying off of oldcells, you are able to stay healthy and grow. Humans are made up of systems. For example, we have our skeletalsystem, that is our bones, which work in conjunction with ourmuscular system, our system of muscles.
We are also comprised, on aslightly smaller scale, of our organs, which include our brain,skin, heart, liver, stomach, kidneys, gallbladder etc. Who made you and me? We are made by our parents. And not just by their physical act. We get one half our genetic makeup from each of our parents, and that process - which sometimes means that the genetic material is altered slightly - is what makes us the people we are.
Our environment and our upbringing also play a part in the people we develop into.
