Orange Tree Samples has launched Paradise Marimba, a marimba instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Paradise Marimba was developed in collaboration with Chris Poehler of Lujon Audio. The marimba in this library was specifically selected for its warm, full sustain. The lowest two octaves of the marimba were additionally sampled with softer bass marimba mallets as an alternate option to the standard mallets. These bass marimba mallets are designed for ambient, cinematic music.
Paradise Marimba accompanies Orange Tree Samples’ Pure Jazz Vibes sample library, also recorded at WaterSound Productions, in Studio City, California. As with the vibraphone library, Michael Aarvold engineered the session.
Paradise Marimba features
- 3.9 GB of 24-bit samples.
- Up to 11x round-robin with four dynamics, chromatically sampled.
- Playable rolls.
- Separate close, mid, and far mic signals.
- Alternate bass marimba mallets, muted hit articulation.
The library is available for the introductory price of $79 USD until until September 30th, 2014 (regular $99 USD). Requires full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4/5.
