I spent a little time trying to get an inspirational virtual version of 1974 Dulcimer of my stepfather !
I didn’t found happiness in libraries around as I was seeking for a realistic, natural vibe and a warm woody sound and feel, something directly inspiring. With the feel of pick attack.
I made a precise mic placement and tracked stereo sample of every string in different tunings, to expand initial possibilities of the instrument with full sustain. I added some fifth chords, hand percs, slides…

Edit : soft tuning correction with melodyne and denoise with izotope RX5 and nothing more.
