The Glass Marimba is a custom 8DIO instrument. We took a classic Marimba and replaced the wooden bars with glass bars, giving a very warm and bright tone to the classic sound. This instrument is a type of xylophone where the bars are struck with mallets to produce musical tones, but with broader, warmer, and lower tonal range. The origin of the marimba goes back to Guatemalan and Mayan culture and is not of African origin, although it sounds like it.
We deep-sampled this gorgeous instrument, which contains over 2,000 samples. The core articulations consist of soft mallets, hard mallets, muted, and finger samples. In addition, we created a variety of effects and ambient patches, all from the samples in the Glass Marimba. With 30 new, custom, in-house presets from trance sounds, pads, and effects, there are more options than ever in the library.
