I’ve been following pianobook eagerly since its inception & In such a short space of time, an incredible library of beautiful instruments has become available for everyone. What a community spirit! I wanted to give something back, however, I lack a piano. So here is my modest contribution, my Vintage Glockenspiel.
I hope you like it!
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
If a glockenspiel is what you want...
I'm not hearing the same issues that Sam has had in the review below mine. For me this is a simple and to the point Kontakt instrument. Nice job!
Glock with a few little issues
This instrument has some nice vintage vibes, and was well recorded. Unfortunately, the instrument sounds like it has some intonation issues. What is more, there are a couple of issues with the Kontakt programming. The root key of the lowest zone in the soft layer is assigned to the wrong octave, and it would probably make a lot of sense to map the instrument lower on the keyboard, even though it is mapped to the correct octaves right now. Only those with 88 note controllers can currently play the entire range without transposing. So, while this is a cool instrument, those issues the tuning problems in particular may make it less attractive for some users.
As glocks go it's realistic
If you're after a glock sound then this will do the job. No frills really but it's got velocity layers giving this instrument life and dynamism. I quite like it.
