Plugin Boutique has launched a limited time sale on Soundiron’s Alto Xylophone, a Kontakt sample library featuring the sounds of a deeply sampled Orff tuned percussion instrument.

Ready to bring acoustic percussive accents to your next composition, Alto Xylophone fits comfortably in any genre from horror to jazz.

It has a warm plunky tone and fast decay, with 13 rosewood bars laid in a diatonic C major scale from C4 – A5. Soundiron used felt mallets to capture each note, then recorded glisses and percussive knocks.

They also sampled two soprano xylophones an octave higher: One has 13 notes (C5-A6) with a rounded playful timbre, while the other has 12 notes (C5- G6) with a crisp biting tone, performed with mallets and wooden cube hammers.
