Balani is a 2 1/2 octave balafon (or balaphon) with small calabash resonators from Guinea. 

We decided that this now 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 possibility to fine tune it.

Balani comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 2 (requires v2.5.2 or later).

We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products. It works on Mac (10.6 or later) and PC (windows XP SP2 or later), in standalone or as a plugin (VST / AU / AAX / RTAS / MAS) and in 32 and 64 bits. If you want to use our products in osx 10.5, please contact us, you will need UVI Workstation v2.1.8 and earlier versions of the UFS files.

 As it is based on the same engine (UVI engine XT), you can also use our products in MOTU MachFive 3 (requires v3.2.1 or later).

Technical description

  • 230Mb, 967 samples.
  • 12 Velocity layers for the sustain.
  • 4 takes per note to avoid the machine gun effect (round robins).
  • about 13 Velocities for the release.
  • Both original and corrected tunings are available for a traditional or contemporary sound.
  • Advanced UVI scripting giving you access to a simple yet powerful interface and advanced features.
