8Dio The New Glass Marimba KONTAKT
The New Glass Marimba is a custom 8DIO instrument and is a modification of the classic Marimba. We have taken a classic Marimba and replaced the wooden bars with glass bars, this gives a very warm and bright tone to the classic sound. This instrument is a type of xylophone where the bars are struck with mallets to produce musical tones, but with broader/warmer and lower tonal range. The origin of the marimba goes back Guatamala and Mayan culture and is not of African descent – though it sounds like it.
We deep-sampled this gorgeous deep-sampled instrument, which contains +2.000 samples. All core articulations were deep-sampled separately and consist of soft mallets, hard mallets, muted and finger samples. In addition, we created a variety of FX and ambient patches – all made with the samples from The New Glass Marimba. The New update now includes 30 new custom in house presets from trance sounds, pads and effects the presets add even more options to the library.

The New Glass Marimba contains our custom Chaos FX system, which allows you to virtually do anything you desire.

We also added our latest Impulse Responses, which allows you to create Textural Convolution Delays on top of the existing stereo-delay and convolution reverb.
