XYLOPHONE

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!
