Soniccouture Admirable Marimba KONTAKT - MAGNETRiXX [oddsox] — 20130624131959.jpg

When we sure to bite a marimba, we knew we wanted to upon a 5 octave concert mould. There’s something very individual about the gross bass notes of a brilliant sized mould. The Yamaha 6100 mould, which was designed in collaboration with have-acclaimed marimba phenomenon Keiko Abe, seemed to be the reasonable choice.

A scion of the African balafon, the current marimba originated in Mexico, and is typified by woody (rosewood or the cheaper padauk) bars mounted above metal resonator tubes, which can be tuned using stops.

The 6100 marimba represents the unrestrained form of the art, with private unambiguousness tuning which ensures honourable light into and a brilliant tone, while the Honduran Rosewood bars and welded resonators blow the whistle on bump-at in a body playing.

Tremolo is such a inferior marimba technic we’ve designed an initial Kontakt module to satirize this transcribe of engagement with exceptional exactness. It comfortably handles 1 to 4 voices of congruity (since marimba players scarcely ever use more than 4 mallets), and will intelligently remap the tremolo in loyal in days of yore based on the new MIDI or your playing. The hightail it and velocity of the Tremolo can be modulated in loyal in days of yore using a MIDI controller.

The instrumentality is stupendous, almost 3 meters across, which makes recording it a confrontation ; it isn't possible to get too secretive to an instrumentality that in a body and testify any race of sensible stereo replica. And since we were aiming for an , non-ambient, recording, we needed a very in a body but relatively dry studio to industry in.
3 Mic pairs were used : AKG414s (with CK12 capsules), Shoeps cardioids, and AEA ribbons further turn tail from in the . These mics were tainted down to a stereo signal in place making. The positions can be seen in the exact replica below.

Mallet : The mere articulation, and the most inferior marimba tone. 5 different mallet types were used during the recording, to insure a undeviating resonance across the whole array of the instrumentality.

Sail : A played Sail, sampled and looped from the marimba player’s tangible engagement. Don’t confound this with Tremolo. In low-down, marimba players scarcely ever use Rolls, so this is a individual function of sorts.

Take Up The Cudgels For : Made by hitting the marimba with the operate of the mallets rather than the critical. This is a good-natured of individual function you upon in up to date marimba repertoire, so we included it here. This tone is sometimes called “Rattan”.

Bow : The marimba bowed with a cello bow. Produces a uniform, pad-like tone.

This is a Kontakt Virtuoso instrumentality. This means that you do not need to own the brilliant side of NIKontakt to use it. It will run as a block-in instrumentality in any VST/AU/RTAS compatible announcer program or DAW eg: Cubase, Wisdom, Ableton Function, DP, Reaper, Pro-Tools etc. No additional hold is necessary.

The combination requirements to run the instrumentality are :
Windows 7 or Windows 8 (latest Serving Wedge, 32/64-bit), Intel Heart 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended)
Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 (latest update), Intel Heart 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended)
N.B. If you already own a brilliant side of Kontakt, then you can also use the instrumentality in exactly the same way.

Requires Kontakt 5.1 or later
