Bad Cat Samples The Indi Glock KONTAKT EXS24
Bad Cat Samples The Indi Glock KONTAKT EXS24
"The Indi Glock” is a 500MB glockenspiel library for Kontakt 5 and above. The Indi Glock is perfectly sampled with a Ribbon Mic and heavily driven tube preamp. The combination of this traditionally "dark” sounding signal path with an instrument that can too easily sound harsh results in a perfect tone.

Smooth is not generally an adjective used to describe glockenspiel samples, but this is a smooth sounding instrument. It comes in two versions, one recorded with traditional legato mallet strokes, the other with muted mallet strokes.

It is difficult for players to control the sustain on this instrument, so the inclusion of a dedicated muted sample set is a real bonus.

....:::: Comes with 2 patches in both EXS24 and Kontakt format ::::....
• The Indi Glock
• The Indi Glock Muted

Requirements: NI Kontakt Full Version 5.3+ or higher.

Why use sticks when you can use ping pong balls?
Pong Glockenspiel is a Kontakt Instrument made by recording a toy glockenspiel played with ping pong balls. Two velocity layers (hard and soft) are cross faded to have a smooth transition while the 3 round robin (repetitions samples) avoid the "machine gun” effect of sampled instruments. There are also included two ambient instruments, two synth pad instruments and two slowed down instruments crafted using the original samples.

A Unique Bowed Glockenspiel Sample Library KONTAKT A Unique Bowed Glockenspiel Sample Library KONTAKT
The Rosinspiel is a glockenspiel that has been played with a bow instead of a mallet.

It has a very unique soft, glassy like sound and its an incredibly unusual sample library – perfect for orchestral and underscore music.

The Rosinspiel is glockenspiel played with a bow instead of being struck with a mallet. The result is an unusual, silky sounding instrument with an almost ethereal string like sound.

The staccato samples sound like a celeste with a softer attack, while the sustains sound like a glass armonica with slight bow noise. The samples are tuned to match OrchestralTools’ The Glock.

Recorded with a close mic in 24 bit Mono

The Rosinspiel was close mic’d and recorded in mono as 24bit WAVs. Each sampled sustain is held for 8 seconds or longer with three dynamics recorded for each sustain. Crossfading is controllable via the mod wheel. – The physical instrument’s range is from G3-C6. The virtual instrument’s range is C3-C6.

In total there are 99 sustain samples with 3 velocity layers and 1xRR and 155 staccato samples with 1 velocity layer and 5XRR. It comes with 3 patches – bowed sustain, bowed sustain loop (credit to Park Bench) and staccato.
Glockenspiel with a Raw and Colourful Sound KONTAKT Glockenspiel with a Raw and Colourful Sound KONTAKT
Jonathan’s Glockenspiel was created by composer and sound designer Jonathan Howe.

It consists of 1 and a half octaves and features 7 sampled velocity layers for each note. Naturally it can play in the keys of C, G and F but some samples have been stretched to give you the full chromatic scale and make it a little more versatile. These have been colored red on the keyboard so you know when you are using stretched samples.

Additionally, below the playing range you#ll find some samples of dropping the mallet which you can use for some additional realism, which brings the instrument up to 101 individual samples in total!

It also has a simple reverb on/off switch, a knob reverb size, a humanizing function which you can use to randomly detune the keys and a simple 3-Band EQ.

Last but not least the library also includes a sound design patch which uses the glockenspiel samples and transforms it into a pad-like sound.

Tonehammer Waterphone KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Waterphone KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
We decided to sample this instrument deeper and more creatively then ever before in the history of samples. The best current water phone libraries contains approx. 180-200 samples, which is less then 1/15 of the Tonehammer Waterphone, which contains a mighty 2,903 samples recorded with a variety of bows, a huge set of mallets, metal devices, hands and other contraptions. 

The library also contains a variety of more experimental patches, including boiled water at four different temperature levels, hydrophone recordings (underwater microphones in the waterphone), magnets on waterphone tines and filling waterphone with metal nails and other goodies. The sample library simply covers all thinkable and unthinkable type of articulations and we can proudly state we sampled the living soul out of the waterphone. All playable mallet programs contains our standard 10 velocity layer - 10 round robin for maximum playability. In addition Waterphone contains a bonus set of waterphone ambiences (note: Kontakt 3 only) made by Steven Tavaglione (Instrumentalist and Sound Designer; Wall-E, American Beauty, CSI, Supernatural and 100s other movies/shows/games).
