My question is about what kind of malet-type instrument was used here. It sounds like a real instrument as opposed to a virtual one. The instrument doesn't come through as nicely in the about low res streaming link but when I listen the high quality WAV version it sounds amazing! So I have two questions:
1) Is this indeed a real instrument? What is the exact kind of instrument?
2) If its virtual what is it and if its not what is the best VI to produce a similar sound?
