Marimba Swarm from Spitfire Audio is a unique sample library featuring nine marimbas placed all over the hall at AIR Studios to create what sounds like a tuned percussion "choir," along with a selection of single hits, and transfixing choral tremolando patches. The library is curiously versatile, and includes carnival-like unison hits recorded over many dynamic layers with different beaters and numerous round robins, hail storms of unmeasured tremolos down through the dynamic layers, soft murmurings of "angelic choirs", and more. 

The Ostinatum section of the instrument is not quite an arpeggiator, nor a sequencer, but a device that allows for building complex patterns dependent on what's being played. Additionally, the samples are presented with numerous microphone perspectives. A full version of KONTAKT 5 is required to utilize this sample library.
