The Alto Glockenspiel is a tuned percussion library capturing a compact 25-key alto glockenspiel. This instrument is typically used in student orchestras and has a natural range from A4 - A6, but Soundiron has extended its playable range to from A-1 to G8 to allow extreme high and low notes.
The Alto Glockenspiel was recorded with 3 different articulations: hard mallet, soft mallet and choked. As a bonus you'll get a classic little children's toy glockenspiel library. Each articulation has several dynamic layers and plenty of round-robin variation to create a very dynamic and naturally playable virtual instrument.
The Alto Glockenspiel was captured from a close, dry stereo position and a far, wide position out in a large cathedral, so you've got two very different flavors to work with. These distinct instrument articulation and microphone sets can be independently loaded and controlled, providing you with lots of tonal and atmospheric flavors to layer and shape.
You can use the intuitive UI controls to customize the sound to your needs, with layer-specific controls for swell, attack, release, tightness, tuning, vibrato, articulation selection and an optional sub-synth waveform underlay module for tonal reinforcement. Plug them all into the step-sequencing arpeggiator and auto-roll system and you've got tons of options.
The custom scripted Kontakt user interface built into this library comes equipped with flexible control features, like transient offset and a robust Arpeggiator system that provides a full range of dynamic modes and step sequencer pattern options.
There’s also a complete DSP effects rack, including convolution reverb with dozens of unique spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and plenty of otherworldly FX impulses to fully explore and endless variety of strange and unexpected sonic manipulations.
