Soniccouture Releases Vibraphone

Sampled instrument with true tremolo modelling      21/10/13

Soniccouture Releases Vibraphone

Soniccouture believes that sampled instrument designers have always struggled with the Vibraphone – if you sample the single notes, then each notes tremolo will be out of time with the next, and of course the speed will be fixed at one rate anyway. So, in the past, sampled vibraphones have generally 'faked' the tremolo effect using filters and LFOs.

Soniccouture Vibraphone takes a completely new approach - by sampling the entire instrument twice. Once with the fans closed, once with them fully open, both times completely static - the motor switched off. Once the full vibraphone sound is sampled in both states - fans closed and fans open - it is possible simply crossfade between them in Kontakt using a simple sine LFO. Soniccouture says that this gives not only the authentic, detailed timbre, but also full control over the speed of the tremolo, another essential element of the instrument missing from previous renderings.
