Back in February (2020) I went back to my old college in my hometown to speak to the students about some of the work I have done since leaving college and university. While I was there, I sampled the marimba they have.
Unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture of the marimba, very unlike me. So I instead I’ve decided to use a picture of Loch Linnhe, which I conveniently remembered to capture, as it’s right beside the college.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
This is a really great marimba. There are five velocity layers, which really helps to being the sounds to life. I found myself wishing for some round robins, especially with the Red Beater sound, because it quickly became apparent that it was a sample. The White Beater sound was really great, although it does have reverb in the samples which can't be removed, which makes it a little less useful. Even so, this is a great, playable, and useful sample pack!
It's really a nice marimba instrument, for free! It has no GUI at all, but honestly it doesn't need it. You just load it and, here it is, a marimba at your fingertips. There are two instruments actually, the Red Beater, which is a dry one, and the White Beater, which is a wet one. Try it!
