A long long time ago, when I was a kid, this little birdie was initially bought to me by my father during our visit of Romania sometimes in 1980s. Since those times
this cuckoo sits here and there, moving with me from a flat to a flat, from my childhood to present days. I bet it has never dreamed about being finally sampled :-).
But it happened and did a nice job, singing those two tones patiently for me (it has a hole in the front that can be covered by a finger to produce lower tone). Soon
after I started to play with the samples in Kontakt I decided to release two versions of this instrument - one freebie containing some basic patches and also some
experimental one and the full version, which brings cca 3 times more sample content, more controls in GUI, more patches, dynamic ones, looped ones - all together
with nice experimental possibilities. You can come up with kind of jungle scenery with various exotic birds tweeting, get to the sci-fi territory with weird pads and
effests, or to get to the rock pub with overdriven (cuckoo) rock organ (I am using the word "hammond" here and there just to give you the idea about the type of
the sound)... Really, this little one exceeded my expectations. I hope you will like it too and if not with full version, you will have some fun at least with the freebie.
