The robust 38,000+ samples along with up to 5 microphone perspectives translate to ultra authentic and playable instruments. Additional powerful features such as the Acoustic Positioner and numerous intuitive playing techniques extend this library to boast unparalleled quality:
- Robust 38,000+ samples.

With Scoring Mallets you can elegantly play single notes, Trills, Rolls, Glissandi, and for the first time, have dedicated access to Multi Mallet playing techniques.
These options allow complete freedom of idiomatic writing without the use of pre-recorded loops.
The new Acoustic Positioner offers a proprietary algorithmic instrument positioning that relies on the acoustic properties of the recording space. It offers true positioning capabilities without relying on convolution and panning mock-ups. The engine is based on specific microphone arrays and placement that allowed us to create a comprehensive time and phase matrix that is entirely sample-based.
Playability and humanization are greatly enhanced through custom scripting to control velocity, extended techniques, Trills, Rolls, Glissandi, and multi mallet playing styles.
Scoring Mallets brings you Surround-enabled ultra realistic and detailed instruments that fit virtually any scoring scenario.
Scoring Mallets requires the full retail version of Kontakt 5.5+.
