The New Copperphone is a custom instrument made from modified Copper pipes. The end-result is a 12 pipe instrument that sounds somewhere between pristine bells and a metallic marimba of sorts. The Copperphone contains five core deep-sampled articulation types, which were made by playing the instrument with hard mallet, soft mallet, wooden mallet, muted notes and finger nails. The hard mallet, wooden mallet and finger nails have the most pronounced attack, where the soft mallet has a more smooth and relaxed tone. The included muted articulation is a non-sustained sample of the Copperphone.
The New Copperphone also contains 15 custom ambiences that were 100% made with the Copperphone. Allowing the ambiences to seamlessly blend with the Copperphone itself. All the core patches were deep-sampled extensively including several velocity layers and containing up to 8 round robin repetitions per layer.
