“Alto Glockenspiel Essential by Cinematique Instruments
Free VST, AAX, AU Glockenspiel for PC and Mac
The free Alto Glockenspiel by Cinematique Instruments for HALion provides you with the original sound of the legendary Glockenspiel, but adds some fresh effects to turn the sound into something new. Owing to the fact that the sampled model also has a one octave lower range than a usual Glockenspiel, the sounds are much softer and mellow.
The instrument was recorded by beating the metal bars of the Glockenspiel with thin sticks (hard articulation) as well as soft mallets (gentle articulation) in two or three dynamic layers and three Round Robin variations. With the included cabinet simulation, a rotary simulation, a tone control, a length control and reverb and delay amount, it is very easy to transform the sound into something from another world.”

“The B-3 V delivers the most authentic tonewheel organ and rotary speaker experience you’ll find anywhere, plus customizations that open up new creative opportunities.
Monarch of electronic organs, the rich sounding B3 has been a staple of jazz, gospel, rock, reggae and R&B—not to mention pro studios everywhere—for over a half century. Its electromagnetic tonewheel design gave it a beefy quality not found on later transistor organs. Our faithful homage includes an authentic rotary speaker and an array of stomp boxes, plus inspiring updates like analog circuit mods and drawbar modulation for new animated and syncopated effects.

“THE MUSIC OF GAMELAN
Often translated as “orchestra,” gamelan is an ensemble of instruments from Indonesia, typically Java or Bali. The music itself is often characterized by bright, metallic, percussive qualities, distinctive and complex tuning, the rich layering of instruments, and its cyclical form.
Ensembles differ significantly from one another but are made up of a combination of beautifully crafted metallophones, xylophones, drums, gongs, bamboo flutes, strings, and even vocals. Instruments are built and tuned for specific ensembles, so tunings can differ considerably between gamelans. A peculiarity of the Balinese variant is that each instrument is paired and slightly detuned relative to its partner, resulting in a natural chorus effect.
