Balani is a 2 1/2 octave balafon (or balaphon) with small calabash resonators form Guinea. We decided that this no so rare instrument was worth a sample library especially because it has those "noise generators" in good condition. Most of the time, people remove those because they don't like that noisy effect, but if you listen carefully to some traditional Balafon, you will hear them and we wanted it to be in our library.
The other interesting point about Balafons is the scale that usually is very different from the european ones. It originally plays a B major scale (20 notes) so we extended it (to 33 notes) for this library and also gave the posibility to fine tune it.
You have access to a tuning table and you can change the tone of each note separately and up to one semitone up or down.
The midi select helps you find which key you are pressing in order to tune the right note.
The stereo button duplicated the library and inverts the stereo image and gives the feel of two Balfons playing at the same time. Each duplicate of course triggers different samples and can have its own tuning. You can also control how much stereo separation between the two versions. As always, the Sensitivity knob allow you to adjust the library to your preference and keyboard.
