Glass Marimba is a custom instrument – and a modification of the classic marimba. The main difference is that classic the wooden bars have been replaced with glass bars. The bars are struck with mallets to produce musical tones. ally. This instrument is a type of xylophone, but with broader/warmer and lower tonal range. The origin of the marimba goes back Guatamala and Mayan culture and is not of African decent – though it sounds like it.
We deep sampled this gorgeous deep-sampled instrument, which contains +2.000 samples. All core articulations were deep-sampled separately and consists of soft mallet, hard mallet, muted and finger samples. In addition we created a variety of FX and ambient patches – all made with the Glass Marimba.
