The story

This is my 3rd sample library the gift
It’s an elephant shape toy xylophone made in 1985
My sister got this as a Christmas gift in 1986
Recently, I found it and wanted to do a decent sampler library
You can play it with keys or a red stick.
So I recorded 3 layers of sounds (round robins) using my zoom h6 and did some noise reduction and tuning those samples

You can chose between two groups of sounds or turn it into a dreamy pads.


1.You have a switch to choose between the 2 groups of samples (stick/keys)
2.Group tuning and it’s the eye of the elephant and you can control it by the modulation wheel
3.Main volume
6.Reverb size
8.Delay time
9. Chorus
10.Low pass filter

Hope you enjoy it.
And let me know if you use it to make music.
Your feedback is highly appreciated.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

  • Super fun

    Oh now that's cool!! I remember these as a kid though I never had one. I like how you can switch it from the smoother stick to the janky keys samples. It's a bunch of fun both in melodic and also pad form. Nice work, thanks.

  • A nice little piece of nostalgia.

    This Elephant Xylophone is one big trip down nostalgia lane. The knobs and sliders on the UI are a bit on the smaller side (but it's nice that you can control every single parameter) but once you've set them to a sound that you like (it's the sound that matters the most in my opinion) it's a really clean and useful sample instrument. I think this could get used in anything from a gentle childrens carol to a horror soundtrack and even in an orchestral soundtrack for some nice sprinkles of elephant joy. Nicely done George!
