Soniccouture has announced the release of a new instrument library featuring essential supporting percussion, sampled in unprecedented detail.

The Kontakt Player powered Orchestral Chimes Collection library features a glockenspiel, tubular bells, and crotales, recorded with multiple mallets, 17 velocity layers and dual mic channels.

The Soniccouture Orchestral Chimes Collection is surely the most detailed sampling of these instruments to date.

Often an afterthought even in larger orchestral percussion libraries, here they are thrust into in the spotlight: comprehensive mallet selections with a very high level of velocity detail give each instrument an unprecedented realism when played.
