Phoenix GUI

Big Bang Orchestra: Phoenix contains single strikes of these instruments:

  • Timpani (played with soft mallets)
  • Glockenspiel (played with plastic mallets)
  • Xylophone (played with wooden mallets)
  • Vibraphone (played with soft mallets)
  • Tubular bells (played with medium hard mallets)

Additional ways of playing the timpani are pegs and instruments tuned in octaves, as well as variations with and without a motor on the vibraphone.

The multitude of available presets makes it easy to achieve the perfect sound “out of the box” - be it to fit into the overall sound of all other modules in the Big Bang Orchestra series or to use the instruments in different types of arrangements and genres to place. Thanks to the masterful combination of the various microphone signals with the internal effects of the Synchron Player, presets such as Close, Classical, Wide, Comp + Reverb, Far Away Echoes, Power Timps and many more are available.
