AudioThing has released a new Toy Marimba instrument for Kontakt.
Toy Marimba features “a small tuned percussion instrument” made of rosewood and rope. Product developers describe how they created the virtual instrument:
“This handmade toy instrument was found in a distressed state and some work was required to restore its original functionality. It was sampled with wood and bamboo mallets, with 3 Round Robin repetitions and 3 velocity layers for the main hits. Slides and glissandos (up/down with 3 speeds) are also included along with slowed down samples crafted for wooden and airy textures.”
