Wavesfactory releases "W-Glockenspiel" for Kontakt

Wavesfactory has released W-Glockenspiel for Kontakt.

A glockenspiel is a percussion instrument composed of a set of tuned metal bars arranged in the fashion of the keyboard of a piano. It's small and high in pitch. Very common in orchestral music, but also in pop/corporate/indie tracks.

Wavesfactory sampled full sustain hits and glissandos using 4 different mallets:

  • Soft: rubber.
  • Thin: wood.
  • Hard: plastic.
  • Sharp: metal.


  • Recorded in a completely dry recording studio with up to 12x selectable round robins, up to 4 velocity layers. Sampled chromatically with no pitch shifting.
  • Attack/release controls. Playing with the attack you can get very different results.
  • Recorded with 2 microphone positions, close and room, controllable directly on the interface using a slider that crossfades between the two signals.
  • Round robin reset keyswitch (green) and a dampen keyswitch (red) to stop all voices applying a fade out.

Price: €9.95. For Kontakt 4.2.4 and above.
