The definitive collection of mallet instruments
Malletopia is a vast collection of chromatic percussion instruments. It includes 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. In addition, the sounds were matched with sampled spaces created using rare and vintage reverbs. It includes 8.5 GB of sample content and 125 SampleTank 4 instrument presets of exotic timbres that fit into cinematic, pop or even electronic productions.
Mallets beyond limits
Most all-in-one sample collections include a marimba and vibraphone and, if you're lucky, a glockenspiel and xylophone and perhaps even orchestra chimes. But what you don't normally get is the variety of each instrument played with different mallets at multiple velocities. Malletopia contains top source instruments that were captured with an articulated assortment of mallets.
A marimba struck with a hard yarn mallet sounds vastly different than a marimba struck with a felt mallet or wooden mallet. You'll even find hits recorded using metal mallets on instruments like vibraphone that normally don't call for such articulations, providing you with more exotic timbres that fit into cinematic, pop or even electronic productions.
The source instruments were recorded with deep round robin techniques so that each SampleTank preset plays and sounds like the real thing, even with repeated notes.
Sounds that always sound fresh
Malletopia is definitely not just a rigid library of classical and jazz sounds. In addition to sampled instruments, you'll find lush atmospheres from several highly sought-after vintage hardware reverb units. The sampled spaces are utterly controllable with all of SampleTank’s filters, envelopes and other synthesis functions.
And the sampled spaces are also provided without the mallet instruments where they create utterly vibey pads and even vocal-like atmospheres of their own. Use these atmospheres as drones, effects or ambient backgrounds in any kind of music, anywhere you need a lush setting full of character or instant spacey mood.
Expand your sonic universe
No matter what kind of music you produce, Malletopia provides the vast assortment of chromatic percussion color to fit any track. Whether you are an electronic music producer, a classical composer, a jazz orchestrator or a pop artist, Malletopia expands your sonic universe into new reaches with the ultimate collection of chromatic percussion sounds and variations.
