The story

I don’t know why, but I seem to have a penchant for purchasing instruments in desperate need of repair, and then investing way too much time and effort into fixing them up. I came across this Deagan 555 Vibraharp on Facebook marketplace. It seemed like a steal at only $200. I rented a truck, picked it up, and the next day, I started assessing what I’d bought. $800 in parts and professional restoration of the keys, and hours and hours of labor later, I have a delightful little vibraphone.

  • Excellent Vibes pack

    I have quite as few Vibes libraries, both free and paid (premium) and this one sounds the most real to me. If it only had a basic set of staccato and sustained samples it would be great, but all the additional patches make it so much more versatile for a variety of musical styles. Thanks so much for this.

  • The perfect vibraphone!

    Sam never fails to deliver the absolute best of the best. This time it's an incredible Vibraphone-like instrument, with impeccable sampling and 67 (!) "presets" for the user to explore. Those are not really presets. They are patches with either lightly or heavily modified samples based on the MASTER patch, and some of those are straight incredible. I especially find the Experimental section mesmerizing and very inspirational - though I have to say that with such a perfectly implemented arpeggiator, the level of inspiration is over 9000.

    I found that in some samples near the mid-high register, the attack was wayu too clicky for me, but after setting the attack at ~1.5ms via the Edit Mode instrument options (wrench icon at the top left) it was just sweet perfection.

    Vibraphone lover or not, this deserves your attention despise the size of the whole thing. It is very much worth it!

    Sam, you are the man. This is a stunningly beautiful vibraphone sample pack. The sound is so full and complete. The subtleties of the low and high range is all there. Then there are the many premade patches of delay, reverb, modulation etc, that make your libraries such a gift. Thanks again!

    This one is right up my alley. I typically reach for a synthesizer if i want floaty bell-y stuff, but this stuff is so organic that I'll probably stick to this for the time being. Doesn't sound Vibraphoney at all. (I'm sorry.)
