3 Articulation / Playing Technique|
- Mallets: consists of open and muted articulations, which are natural to the Vibraphone.
- Bowed: achieved by stroking the metal bars with a bow, which results in a sound with a beautiful, slow attack.
- Prepared: achieved by placing coins, spoons, spatulas, washers and respectively foldpaper on the metal bars. The prepared articulations can be played apart from each other or mixed
providing regular mallets as well as bowed and prepared sounds and a silky and organic sound
On board fx such as Octaver, chorus and low res (butcrusher) expand the instruments options
Tiny but effective. The 8step sequencer with voicing engine per step lets you easily create inspiring patterns.

The Vibraphone is a percussion instrument very similar (and at the same time very unsimilar) to the Marimba. Its tone is produced by metal bars that are arranged like the keys on a piano, and resonator tubes underneath them. More advanced in comparison to the Glockenspiel, it features a tremolo driven by a motor, and a pedal to either let the metal bars ring, or to dampen them.
