I can't believe just how generous this community has been with instrument requests. It's nuts. It's like… "Hey! I wondered if there was some sort of [obscure instrument] samples out there" "oh hey I have a virtually complete set ready for you to use" and then there are HIGH FIVES

So yeah. Here's my try at taking advantage of the awesome people here. : )

yes, you can use any program you want for the samples, and you can export not only the c but how many samples you want. and, more sample you use, better the instrument sounds, especially for natural instruments recorded :)

That instrument posted above has some metadata corruption that actually caused crashes in the app. I've taken the samples, properly looped them and made a new instrument from them.
