Channel Robot has announced the immediate release of The Modernist Marimba, an Everything-4-Ever membership exclusive.
The Modernist Marimba is part of a series of instruments aimed at providing beautiful simple interfaces that match beautiful, simple, and useful audio sampling.
Channel Robot carefully sampled a Marimba with a classic articulation and then added three additional sample sets that use innovative different approaches to playing the instrument. You can mix and match all of these to get a unique Marimba-based sound.
Channel Robot included an innovative approach to delay, using a micro-delay engine, to allow easy development of trilled, and sustained sounds and added a warmth and colour controls to allow colouration of the final output. Finally Channel Robot added two convolution reverbs dedicated to room spaces to place the instrument in a realistic environment.
The Modernist Marimba comes with 20 snapshots to get you started.
The Modernist Marimba is only available to Everything-4-Ever members; a membership service where Channel Robot offer every product they've ever made or will make. As a member you can download each of the products and keep them forever, even if your membership lapses. This is not a pay-as-you-go subscription service.
