Story

For years I’ve had this marching vibraphone on permanent loan from an old roommate. Not sure exactly where it came from but it’s probably best not to ask. I performed the vibes as quietly as possible with 3 different mallets (soft, medium and hard) and included multiple round robins.

The Soft sounds have a noticeable thump and flutter, perfect for percussive arpeggiation. The Medium sounds offer a nice blend of attack and sustain. The Hard samples are more focused and aggressive. When used sparingly they provide definition and clarity, helping the vibes cut through the mix.

My U47 clone was placed inches from the vibes for an up close, immediate sound. I blended in a small amount of my x/y configured KM84’s for depth and stereo imaging.

Love them. Having issues with repeated notes note sounding after random number of repeats? 4 sometimes 5? Anyone?. Really great sound and am loving them in my tracks. Thanks for your work on this!

The demo sounds fantastic. Would love to see a DecentSampler or SFZ version for us non-Kontakt users. This would really set the Vibes free 😉

Great recording quality, easy to dial in and blend the three different mallets. Like a Fender Rhodes electric piano, vibes are able to blend with any instrument, particularly good with strings. Thank you!
