Alto Glockenspiel

Alto Glockenspiel

“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.”

“B-Box is a classic step sequencer for beats and drum tracks: 16 steps, each with velocity control, and 13 instruments provide the tools for quick and easy beat production, while the integrated mixing section lets you tweak your sounds to perfection. Over 300 groove presets each with 6 patterns provide plenty of fodder should you need some inspiration. B-Box also offers integrated effects in the form of reverb and delay, while drag and drop of MIDI files allows easy transfer of patterns to Cubase.”

Soniccouture worked with Martin Perkins and Joshua Sadler from BCU – choosing instruments to be sampled,
sourcing players and advising on the best way to sample them.
