Mallets: A Live Pack from Abelton and Soniccouture.

For Marimba, Soniccouture used a Yamaha 6100 model, designed with legendary marimba player Keiko Abe - and recorded different velocities. The nuances of the real instrument are preserved in the pack, and selectable via the macro controls on the Instrument Rack. Moving over to the vibraphone, Soniccouture have achieved something new in multisamples - with samples of its fans both closed and opened and mapped to an LFO, the vibraphone included in Mallets can truly replicate the unique tremolo of the instrument.
