“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.”

Get ready to go big and bold with our brand-new orchestra – for free!
Providing a “tutti” orchestra is a first for Vienna Symphonic Library. We’ve recorded our entire Synchron Stage Orchestra playing together, all at once, with multiple microphones. Capturing the sheer power of a massive orchestra with the signature acoustics of Synchron Stage Vienna’s Stage A was one of the most riveting sampling experiences we’ve ever had. We’re so happy with the results that we want to share them with you – as a “thank you” to our worldwide community of music creators, and as a “welcome” to new users.”
“Dexed is a multi platform, multi format plugin synth that is closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. Under the hood, it uses music-synthesizer-for-android for the synth engine and JUCE as a plugin wrapper.
The goal of this project is to be a great tool/companion for the original DX7. Yes, the sound engine with ‘float’ values parameter; different waveform (a la TX81z) would be great but anything that goes beyond the DX7 should will be a fork of this project. This is to keep the compatiblity with the original synth.”
“Our latest version of Elastik, developed in conjunction with zplane.development, is the most powerful that we have ever developed. It provides a complete toolkit for modern music producers working with audio loops. Audio loops can be an essential part of many musicians creative process and, with Elastik, you get a fast, efficient and flexible set of tools.
With its intuitive Loopeye editing environment, the high-quality pitch and tempo manipulation algorithms build into its playback engine, the ease with which it can be used either as a stand-alone application or as a plugin within almost any DAW on both Windows and OSX platforms and the huge collection of Elastik-ready sample libraries spanning almost every conceivable musical genre, Elastik is a powerful workstation for loop-based music creation.
“Engine is a fully customizable multi-page sample player specially designed for a variety of sample libraries and virtual instruments. It was developed in cooperation by Magix (former Yellow Tools) and Best Service and is based on the Independence Sampler Technology.
All Engine-based products are fully compatible with the powerful software sampler Independence 2 or newer – so you can also use the ENGINE products to expand your Independence library – of course including all Independence parameters and features.
EP1 is an electric piano instrument, based on VST3 SDK example mdaEPiano by Paul Kellett (MDA).
“Guitar Harmonics Essential by Cinematique Instruments
Free VST guitar for PC and Mac
The free VST guitar created by Cinematique Instruments can be used in every audio software featuring VST 3, AAX or AU with the free plug-in HALion Sonic SE 3. Guitar Harmonics focuses on so-called flageolet notes or harmonics and creates very pure and clear sounds of an electric guitar.
The instrument provides a lot of useful options giving you a wide range of tools to vary and change the sound at your own requirement such as note length control (decay), tone control, cabinet and rotary and a reverb and delay control.
With this array of tools, the instrument produces a wide spread of sounds such as organic reverse guitars, fragile string notes and warm e-piano tones.”
