Plucks and Mallets

Concert Pedal Harp, Glockenspiel, Chimes, Acoustic Harmonics, Steel Tongue Drum, Cello, Electric Guitar, keys and more. Plucks and Mallets was crafted carefully from 11 instruments so it feels authentic, bold, and daring, with all the sonic quality of real instruments in real spaces, and all the functionality of a synthesizer with full effects.

We decided to make an instrument that combines some of the best plucky sounds with some of our favorite instruments you hit with a mallet.

We brought in an 8 foot concert pedal harp and we paired it with a steel tongue drum and an electric piano, guitar, cello, and others so you can make tones that nobody has ever heard before.

Use each of these 11 as solo instruments or blend them in infinite configurations to create brand new hybrid tones. A fully customizable arpeggiator gives these real tones the functionality of a synthesizer with all the character and and organic quality of the original sampled instruments. Shape the tone with AHDSR and a filter of your choice before it hits 3 custom shaped LFO's: Gain, Pitch, and Filter. Finish crafting your sound with 5 onboard effects.
