Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of Basic Marimba, the last in its 2012 “Clearing Out” series of sound libraries.

Cinematique Instruments Basic Marimba

Basic Marimba includes 3 patches: regular marimba, muted marimba and towel marimba.

A marimba is a percussion instrument which consists of a set of wooden bars with resonators which are struck with mallets to produce its tone.

As the name of our release „Basic Marimba“ suggests, we are coming up with a rough and basic version of a marimba. This is because we recorded the marimba on the fly in between an orchestral break. By saying that, it becomes obvious that we only intended to take a snapshot of the marimba: we quickly miked it up and recorded some of the main playing techniques with up to 3 Round Robin variations and 3 velocity layers. In order to get a proper and useful instrument we spent some more time with post production and editing the whole instrument.

Even though we are aware of the fact that our marimba is not a very complex and extravagant instrument, we still decided to release the “Basic Marimba” as the final piece in our series of “Clearing Out the Stock”. The Basic Marimba is well suited for quite a lot music productions.

The Basic Marimba for Kontakt is available to purchase for 15 EUR.
