True Mallets Vol. 2 - Deep Vibes
Vibes are attitude, style, and character. Few instruments can claim to transverse musical styles with more elegance. From Disney-esque fairytale scoring to jazz, lounge or pop and anything in between, this is an extremely versatile instrument in the hands of a capable player. Turn on the motor and experience a whole new sonic universe, a mysterious and liquid modulation in between vibrato and tremolo. Sampled vibes often result in a mediocre experience with the motor sound, because the sampled notes are never in phase as they should be. Thanks to the scripting features in Native Instruments Kontakt, notes not only stay phase locked - you can even change the motor speed in real time right from your MIDI controller!
With Deep Vibes, you can enjoy more than 30 instruments that range from standard articulations with and without pedal, motor on/off to non standard techniques like secco and hits with the sticks, to several bowed variations and extended techniques. Standard articulations come in four velocity layers with left/right hand round robin samples.
Deep Vibes is also available as a bundle offer together with Concert Marimba.
