5 Octave Marimba Kontakt Instrument

Soniccouture release Grand Marimba      25/02/13

Soniccouture has announced their latest product, Grand Marimba.

A spokesperson told us...
"We respectfully assert the notion that this is the most detailed & expressive sampling of a marimba available today : we produced the instrument because there didn't seem to be a marimba out there that could truly stand up to solo use. So, we found the ultimate 5 octave model : a Yamaha 6100 series, and sampled it at 24/96 khz, with enough velocity and round robin layers to ensure a natural, organic percussive action."

Details :
• 5 Octave Marimba
• 24 bit 96 khz stereo sampling
• 3.4 GB library (with NCW compression)
• 5 round robin layers, 15 velocity layers
• 4 articulations: Mallet, Stick, Roll, Bow
• KSP Tremolo module
• Kontakt Player Compatible

Soniccouture tells us that their man, Dan, spent a week's MIDI programming matching a classic Dame Evelyn Glennie performance to produce the audio demo above.

Grand Marimba is available now as a 3.5 GB download, priced EUR 99 / USD $119

Introductory Offer : £10 / €15 / $20 off MSRP (ends 8th March 2013)
