The Marxophone contains one lovingly sampled original Marxophone with multiple layers and velocity sensitive trill action (as well as multiple instruments with different performance options).

The original instrument was produced from around 1912 by the Marxochime Colony of New Troy, Michigan.

It is essentially a hammered zither which gives a mandolin-like trill sound when the hammers are pushed down onto the strings. It is also possible to strum the open strings behind the hammer-plate.

It's a very distinctive sound and one you'll probably recognise.

This has a custom velocity management script to really aid playability and control of the trill function and a LoFi script with drive control to take this unique instrument to some new places. We've also included eleven variations on the standard Marxophone.

Check out the demos to hear it in action.
