Puremagnetik MalletPak Three KONTAKT Live 9
Multi-sampled Glockenspiel and Stonaphone mallet instruments. Includes over 600 individual samples and 12 advanced programs.
The Glockenspiel has been used in classical concert and marching ensembles for decades, but it has also seen extensive use in pop music. From Jimi Hendrix to Rush to modern Indie Folk, the Glockenspiel provides a percussive sprinkling of metallic tones. Due to its small and portable size, the Glockenspiel has become the most common mallet instrument used in popular music today.
The Stonaphone is an oddity, seldom seen or heard. Made of roofing slate on a mahogany base, the tone of the Stonaphone is vastly different than the metal bars of the Glockenspiel.
For MalletPak Three, Puremagnetik has multi-sampled both instruments extensively and created multiple patches recreating the instruments in natural form. Beyond these standard patches there are layered combinations of metal and stone together, infinite sustained resonant patches, electrified variants, reversed mallet strikes and key-up triggered patches to allow for easy emulation of mallet ?rolling?.

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.

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
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.

PureMagnetik MalletPak One MULTiFORMAT
MalletPak One is a collection of 13 multisampled marimba instruments. It was recorded in a reflective room with a pair of Shure KSM32s in an ORTF configuration to capture the wide stereo field of the instrument. Four different mallet types were used with multiple hits for round-robin triggering and several velocity layers each.
A violin bow recorded for each marimba bar creates an eerily textured patch with infinite sustain. A hybrid patch combining mallet strikes with the bowed texture allows you to mix between articulations. The Logic, Kontakt and Ableton versions include a massive program that includes all 4 mallet types for easy switching during a performance or recording. Additionally, there are several synthetic patches using the marimba as sound source to create unique new musical tones.
MalletPak was produced in collaboration with artist Richard Lainhart.
