XYLOPHONE

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!

WALKTHROUGH

PRODUCT INFO

The xylophone consists of two lines of pitched wooden (or synthetic) blocks. When hit with a mallet, the instrument produces a tone. Resonators (in the form of tubes) under the blocks give the instrument sustain and volume.

This virtual instrument includes three different mallet settings, recorded with two sets of microphones including Round Robin and multiple velocity layers.

This particular xylophone is part of VSCO 2.

BEHIND-THE-SCENES

THREE MALLETS, THREE MOODS

In many orchestral libraries, the xylophone gets treated quite roughly, with only hard mallets sampled. Here we've taken the time to additionally sample medium and soft mallets, more suitable for solo and intimate works.

 

Mallets can be swapped using the modwheel- by pushing the wheel up, harder mallets are engaged, while pulling the wheel down will swap to soft mallets. This can be automated in your DAW or notation software for easy switching!
