FluffyAudio has announced My Vibes, a new sample library for Kontakt. With 3 different mallets, 2 mic positions, 6 layers for short articulations, and 3x round robin, FluffyAudio says is one of the most accurate vibraphone libraries ever.
The user-friendly interface allows you to customize the sound of the vibraphone to fit in different musical contexts.
FluffyAudio says this about the "Playing Mode" feature:
"When we were working on My Vibes we realized that a real vibraphone just doesn't play as a piano keyboard. When the pedal is up the notes are short, when the pedal is down the notes are long. There's no way to keep a single note long and the others short, like in a piano. In My Vibes you have this additional feature. In real mode My Vibes reacts like a real vibraphone, while in piano-like mode you can play the vibraphone like a piano. To keep notes long you don't have to keep the pedal down, you just need to keep the keys pressed."
