The New Glass Marimba Instrument for Kontakt
To support the composer community 8Dio released another free Kontakt Instrument. The New Glass Marimba is a custom 8DIO instrument and is a modification of the classic Marimba. 8Dio has taken a classic Marimba and replaced the wooden bars with glass bars, this gives 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 Guatamala and Mayan culture and is not of African descent – though it sounds like it.
