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."
• 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.
