Alto Glockenspiel + BONUS: Tuning Fork

Gentle Bells

The Instrument

The Alto Glockenspiel is a percussion instrument, composed of a set of tuned metal bars resting over a frame like a trough. Contrary to our “Small Metal Set 1″ which contains the Glockenspiel, this time we used the alto version of this legendary red model of Hohner™ with an one octave lower range, which sounds more soft and mellow. As a bonus you get two patches of a giant tuning fork with a size of 11″, made of solid material, which we found in a smithy.

The Content

We recorded the metal bars of the Alto Glockenspiel beaten with thin sticks and soft mallets, in 2 or 3 dynamic layers and three Round Robin variations, mapped in a range from C2 (C1) to F5. We added some scripts and fx to provide a lot of opportunities. The huge tuning fork was beaten with a 5kg hammer. Additionally we recorded along the surface with special microphone movement to get different characters of the long lasting sustain.

The Package

4 patches: gentle, hard, mallet and pure notes and as a bonus 2 Huge Tuning Fork patches: texture and deep. For more details please read the manual.
