To achieve true concert playability, we've captured every nuance of this exquisite full-scale Adams Alpha 5-octave rosewood marimba. This virtual instrument includes 4 mallet types, with 10 round-robin variations and 12 dynamic layers per note.

Marimba is our first instrument in the Hyperion Percussion series. To achieve true concert playability, we've captured every nuance of this exquisite full-scale Adams Alpha 5-octave rosewood marimba with Apex frame (C2 – C7). This virtual marimba library includes 4 mallet types, with 10 round-robin variations and 12 dynamic layers per note:

1. Innovative Percussion Pedro Carneiro Series PC3 medium soft yarn marimba mallets, for a warm, heavy and yet softly-rounded character. 2. Promark SPYR SM3 medium yarn marimba mallets, for a balanced and classic response with rich tonality. 3. Vic Firth Anders Astrand Orange Series M293 hard yarn vibraphone mallets, for a crisp, sharp and precise attack. 4. Extra-large 1.6" soft rubber mallets, for a springy bounce, smooth attack and a strongly pronounced, blooming sustain.

This solo edition of the Hyperion Marimba provides an extremely close, wide stereo position. We center on each bar individually to provide unprecedented detail, clarity and robust presence. This allows you a fully-customizable stereo field over the key-range, and you can freely position the instrument on the soundstage to select the perfect room, hall, algorithmic reverb or environmental impulse with our signature Space tab.

CONTENTS

The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more.

This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. We’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.

The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 27 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 8 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
