Soniccouture Grand Marimba

Product Description
$126.00
Maximum quantity available reached.
Five Octaves Of Precision

When Soniccouture decided to sample a marimba, they knew they wanted to find a 5 octave concert model. Theres something very special about the enormous bass notes of a full sized model. The Yamaha 6100 model, which was designed in collaboration with world-renowned marimba legend Keiko Abe, seemed to be the natural choice.

A descendant of the African balafon, the modern marimba originated in Mexico, and is typified by wooden (rosewood or the cheaper padauk) bars mounted above metal resonator tubes, which can be tuned using stops.  

The 6100 marimba represents the absolute state of the art, with exclusive precision tuning which ensures true pitch and a full sound, while the Honduran Rosewood bars and welded resonators give rattle-free playing.

Tremolo Module

Tremolo is such a common marimba technique Soniccouture have designed an original Kontakt module to mimic this type of performance with unparalleled accuracy. It comfortably handles 1 to 4 voices of harmony (since marimba players rarely use more than 4 mallets), and will intelligently remap the tremolo in real time based on the incoming MIDI or your playing. The speed and velocity of the Tremolo can be modulated in real time using a MIDI controller.

Recording Grand Marimba

The instrument is massive, almost 3 meters across, which makes recording it a challenge ; it isn't possible to get too close to an instrument that large and maintain any sort of sensible stereo image.

3 Mic pairs were used: AKG414s (with CK12 capsules), Shoeps cardioids, and AEA ribbons further back in the room. These mics were mixed down to a stereo signal in post production.

Articulations
  •     Mallet : The main articulation, and the most common marimba sound. 5 different mallet types were used during the recording, to ensure a consistent timbre across the entire range of the instrument.
  •     Roll : A played Roll, sampled and looped from the marimba players actual performance. Dont confuse this with Tremolo. In fact, marimba players rarely use Rolls, so this is a special effect of sorts.
  •     Stick : Made by hitting the marimba with the handle of the mallets rather than the head. This is a kind of special effect you find in contemporary marimba repertoire, so we included it here. This sound is sometimes called “Rattan”.
  •     Bow : The marimba bowed with a cello bow. Produces a sustained, pad-like sound.
