CLASSIC SERIES 'AU' on MacOS ISSUE:
Classic Series libraries were developed between 2013-2015 and come as VSTi, AU, and Kontakt Instrument (.nki) format. The Audio Units version cannot be updated anymore, and is thus NOT compatible with MacOS Catalina or Later. Please do not purchase for use on MacOS unless:
a.) You are permanently on a version earlier than MacOS Catalina,
b.) You have the full (paid) version of Kontakt (not "Player") and plan to use that version only, or
c.) You are willing to use a beta SFZ format port of the library (available on request*).
*To request the SFZ version, please note it in the comments field when purchasing as normal!
Our glockenspiel is slightly more on the mellow side, but, recorded up close, provides a great rich fill of the harmonics, not to mention a lovely quiet end for those cute songs about winter and snow fall when a celeste just won't do.
Unlike most sampled glocks, you get to hear the full natural impact of the mallet and get a full range of dynamics. If you don't like the impact, just add a high-pass filter, we won't mind.
Features 3.5 octaves of chromatic sampling across 3 velocities; 4 RR.
This particular glockenspiel is part of VSCO 2.
GLOCK WITH RECOIL
While many glockenspiel sample libraries capture the distant, bright tone of the glock, we took it upon ourselves to capture the rich, tight nature of a close-mic'd glockenspiel, even down to the thud of the mallet strikes.
(of course, if you don't like the thud, you can use a highpass filter!)
The Kontakt version has a handy transposition function for use in notation software.
