Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of Alto Glockenspiel + Giant Tuning Fork sound library for Kontakt.
The Alto Glockenspiel is a percussion instrument composed of a set of tuned metal bars resting over a frame like a trough. The alto version of the legendary red model of Hohner with an one octave lower range was used, which sounds more soft and mellow. As a bonus you get two patches of a giant tuning fork with a size of 11", made of solid material.
The metal bars of the Alto Glockenspiel were beaten with thin sticks and soft mallets, in 2 or 3 dynamic layers and three Round Robin variations, mapped in a range from C2 (C1) to F5. There are programmed scripts and fx to provide a lot of opportunities. The giant tuning fork was beaten with a 5kg hammer. Additionally the surface of the tuning fork was recorded with a special microphone movement to get different characters of the long lasting sustain.
Kontakt 3 or higher is required.
The price is €16.
