Vienna Symphonic Library Mallets I overview

  • 1Description

Synchron Mallets I Full Library from Vienna Symphonic Library is a virtual instrument with a library that captures the sound and character of a xylophone, a glockenspiel, and a celesta, masterfully played at Synchron Stage Vienna. The instruments were recorded with every nuanced detail using seven, phase-controlled multi-microphone setups which can be mixed to create stereo, 5.1 surround or Auro 3D mixes, each with different levels of ambience and stereo panorama.

Synchron Mallets I is powered by the included Vienna Instruments and Vienna Instruments Pro players, or using the company's mixing hosts Vienna Ensemble and Vienna Ensemble Pro (available separately). This 143.6GB library comprises 212,702 samples with a wide variety of timbres and articulations. The Adams Artist Alpha xylophone features resonator tubes for each bar and was recorded with single notes over four octaves, in eight variants and eight velocities, with various tremolos, and up/down glissandos, using wood and leather beaters, and a double bass bow.

The nuances of the Kolberg celesta were captured in 36 velocity levels, with single notes and glissandos played by a sampling robot. The Yamaha 2500 glockenspiel offers single strokes as well as tremolos and glissandos at various speeds, played with plastic and metal mallets, and a double bass bow that creates the eerie effect of bowed steel bars.

Note: Software requires a ViennaKey USB protection device or other USB eLicenser, if one is not already on the system (available separately).
