Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and I hope this post is in the right place

I recently watched the film Hanna and was moved by the song composed for the closing credits. Very very simple yet beautiful.


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?
