ThePhonoLoop – Cassette Vibraphone v1.01 (KONTAKT)

Cassette Vibraphone is the first instrument in a series of cassettes recorded with real round-robin samples – each note in each dynamic layer was recorded 4 times, in addition, in the Kontakt version there is an option to enable round-robin simulation.

Full version of Kontakt 5.6.6 (or higher) required – not compatible with Kontakt Player

Cassette Vibraphone was recorded in full range (3 octaves) with 4 dynamic layers using 4 different cassette decks. Overall there are 2372 samples – 592 samples per deck, plus 4 noise samples from each deck (6.76 GB of uncompressed 24-bit WAV files).

Every note has been carefully denoised with a high quality algorithm to avoid noise stacking when playing more than one note (there’s still some noise left in the samples to avoid denonising artifacts). Noise can still be added with the noise knob – it’s much more flexible this way and allows the ability to adjust the volume of the noise independently whilst also applying parameters such as filtering. It also creates a more realistic sound, so when playing a five voice chord, only one sample of noise instead of five stacked on top of each other will be heard
