A cutting-edge mallet instrument collection
Malletension is the dark companion library to the Malletopia library. Where Malletopia is beautiful, clean and ethereal, the Malletension library has been expertly processed to bring out a more aggressive, twisted and otherworldly character. It includes 3.5 GB of sample content and 100 SampleTank 4 instrument presets perfect for contemporary scoring or edgy modern pop and EDM productions.
Artful texture in tone
Malletension includes a marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, glockenspiel and orchestra chimes (aka tubular bells) played using an expert player’s assortment of mallet varieties of yarn, felt, wood and metals processed with both vintage analog and state-of-the-art DSP tools.
The source instruments were recorded with deep round robin techniques so that each SampleTank preset plays and sounds like a dynamic, living instrument, even with repeated notes. No '90s rompler behavior here.
Stretching it into something new
Malletension takes these audiophile samples and stretches their natural harmonics, envelope shapes and transient responses to create futuristic chromatic percussion sounds that do not currently exist in the real world.
How about a xylophone that is playable across the whole 88-note grand piano range, sounding musical and inviting on every note? Malletension has it and more.
Add tension to your sonic arsenal
If you are looking for a marimba or tubular bell that sounds excited and bent and far from an ordinary boring acoustic tone, Malletension is for you. If you can use a vibraphone and glockenspiel with impossible harmonic overtones and hauntingly ethereal modulation, Malletension is waiting. Add tension your sonic arsenal with this memorable collection of far out percussion sounds and variations
