Sampleism has announced the release of Vibraphone, a virtual instrument by Paper Stone Instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The PSI Vibraphone is a 1.9GB 37 note virtual instrument using Native Instruments lossless .ncw compressed format samples. Each note of our 1960s 3 octave Premier 751 vibraphone has been meticulously sampled in our cinematic live room.
There are 4 main instruments: Sustain (pedalled) with soft and medium felt beaters, Staccato (unpedalled) with medium felt and hard (rubber) beaters. All 4 have 3 velocity levels. There are also 3 bonus instrument: Muted (hand muted unpedalled), Soft beater Vibrato and medium beater Vibrato (both using the original 1960s tremolo effect). All 7 instruments were sampled using 3 pairs of stereo mics: centre (close) Stereo (wide) Room (distant).
The resulting instrument is lush and warm and playable in the full retail version of Kontakt V4.2.3 or above. (not the free Kontakt Player)
The Vibraphone library is available from Sampleism for RRP £29.99 GBP.
