A vibraphone sound library for Kontakt
Soniccouture announces the release of Vibraphone, a new sample library for Kontakt 5 and the Free Kontakt Player 5.
To capture all the sound complexity of the vibraphone, Soniccouture sampled the instrument twice, once with the vibrato fans fully open and once with the fans closed. In both recordings the motor was switched off to avoid the fans from moving. Then Soniccouture operated a simple crossfade between these samples in Kontakt using an LFO with a sinus waveform. This techniques allows for vibrato speed control.
The 15GB library offers 23 velocity layers, an intelligent round robin mapping system and you'll also find damped note samples. An effect section includes a SSL-style parametric EQ, a delay, a saturation, a transient shaper and the Soniccouture convolution reverb.
The price of Vibraphone is 99€ but through November 2nd, you can get a 15€ discount using the code AIATTR74 at checkout.
You can listen to audio demos at www.soniccouture.com.
