Glass Marimba

Crystal Clear. Radiant Resonance

In this custom creation, the traditional wooden bars on a marimba have been replaced with beautiful, resonant glass bars. This innovative twist infuses the classic marimba sound with a light and bright timbre, expanding its palette to encompass a richer and lower tonal range. While reminiscent of a xylophone in its playing method, the Glass Marimba boasts its own distinctive character, with a delicate twist that sounds like a newly-discovered musical tradition.

We took great care to deep sample this brilliant instrument in stunning detail. The core articulations, including soft mallets, hard mallets, muted strikes, and finger touches, serve as the foundation of this comprehensive library. To enhance the possibilities of this glass creation, we created an array of effects and ambient patches, all crafted from the Glass Marimba samples. With all of the new custom preset programs, spanning from trance-inspired tones to immersive pads and intricate effects, this library introduces an expanded world of sonic exploration.

Soundpaint is a free, new-generation sample engine that brings you closer than ever to the instruments with new sound morphing technology and infinite dynamic layers. With a slew of internal effects, up to 8 parts, a one-click randomizer, a new generation of keyswitches, and intuitive organization, Soundpaint makes it easy to combine and create brand new sounds - instantly.

Soundpaint allows you to easily adjust a sound, from its speed to its starting point (offset), and even reverse with one click. The analog-style internal effects include multiple equalizers, delays, digital and analog distortion with tons of variety, filters, gates, and more. From the classic Lexi reverb emulation to the mystical shimmer verb, there is no end to the magic in Soundpaint.
