8DIO has released a free virtual instrument for Kontakt, Glass Marimba:
Glass Marimba is 8Dio’s final and freebie release of 2011. This gorgeous deep-sampled instrument contains over 2000 samples and is our way of thanking you all for a crazy year. The glass marimba has been a frequently requested instrument, so we thought it would be a great way to end the season.
The library consists of soft mallet, hard mallet, muted and finger samples. In addition we created a variety of FX and ambient patches – all made with the Glass Marimba.
It’s a free download through 1/1/2012. Full version of Kontakt 4.2+ required.
