Available for download, the Frank Ricotti Glockenspiel from Spitfire Audio is a virtual musical instrument which draws on sampled material as you play on your keyboard, recreating your playing in glockenspiel sound. The 4010 included samples, performed by percussionist Frank Ricotti, cover a variety of timbres produced with beaters ranging from extra-soft to hard, as well as an array of tremolos, glissandos, and special effects. Five different microphone mixes can be combined and blended for effectful shifts in focus and depth.
For further sound customization, there is a dynamics slider which allows for volume modulation within your score and an expression slider which controls the overall volume. The library is sampled with multiple slightly varying versions of each sound, known as round robins. Each time you hit a certain key a random round robin plays back, giving your virtual performance a lifelike feel. Recorded dry, the samples allow for easy manipulation and in-depth control of ambient effects.
Note: Requires full version of Kontakt 5
The overview panel gives you a quick and easy way to access, view, and load the different articulations, mic mixes, and essential controller functions which you can then re-assign to suit your workflow.
General Controls Panel
This is a deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. You can choose, for example, how many round robins you want and how you want them to behave, or how memory is organized alongside pitch options.
This device allows you to build up complex rhythmical patterns that react to your playing to create original effects.
