The bright, delicate sound of this instrument is truly special! The instrument was created specifically for sampling, and there are so many possibilities for the sound in Soundpaint. From crystal clear tones to ethereal, glassy pads, the glass marimba adds a special touch to just about any composition.
And you don’t even have to worry about breaking anything! No glass will shatter if you play too hard - unless perhaps your MIDI keyboard is also made of glass.
We have a few cusom mallet percussion instruments like this in Soundpaint. The core sound can be pretty simple, which makes it easy to combine them into more custom instruments. Give it a try yourself - a couple of them are free!
