Soundiron Alto Glockenspiel
Glockenspiel Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Full
The Alto Glockenspiel is a tuned percussion library capturing a compact 25-key alto glockenspiel.
This instrument is typically used in student orchestras and has a natural range from A4 - A6, but this version has an extended playable range from A-1 to G8 to allow extreme high and low notes.
Soundiron recorded the alto glockenspiel with 3 different articulations: hard mallet, soft mallet, and choked.
As a bonus, the instrument also includes Soundiron's classic little children's toy glockenspiel library.
Each articulation has several dynamic layers and plenty of round-robin variation to create a very dynamic and naturally playable virtual instrument.
The Alto Glockenspiel was captured from a close, dry stereo position and a far, wide position out in a large cathedral, so you've got two very different flavors to work with.
These distinct instrument articulation and microphone sets can be independently loaded and controlled, providing many tonal and atmospheric flavors to layer and shape.
You can use our intuitive UI controls to customize the sound to your needs, with layer-specific controls for swell, attack, release, tightness, tuning, vibrato, articulation selection, and an optional sub-synth waveform underlay module for tonal reinforcement.
Plug them all into our step-sequencing arpeggiator and auto-roll system and you've got tons of options.
The custom-scripted Kontakt user interface built into this library comes equipped with flexible control features, like attack, release, transient offset (tighten), dynamic swelling, vibrato, and a robust Arpeggiator system that provides a full range of custom dynamic modes and step sequencer pattern creation options.
There is also a complete DSP effects rack, including convolution reverb with dozens of unique spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms, and plenty of otherworldly FX impulses to fully explore, and an endless variety of strange and unexpected sonic manipulations.

They provide a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player does not fully support it and can only run it in a time-limited "demo mode".
However, the sample directories are unlocked so you can use them in other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.
The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab, or import it into the Kontakt database and Quick load tools for easy navigation, loading, and organization.
