Free Resonator Glockenspiel

On a particularly hot summer day in 2019, David Hilowitz came across this charming old glockenspiel at the Philadelphia Flea Market. Aside from its distinctive, homemade look, what makes this particular instrument unique is its resonator tubes – something one tends to see on larger instruments such as vibraphones and orchestral bells.

Free Resonator Glockenspiel Features

  • Four round robins per note
  • Two versions: V1 (middle distance micing) and V2 (closed mixed)
  • The V1 version has two velocity layers
  • The DecentSampler / Kontakt version comes with a single control: reverb
  • Three versions:
    • SFZ version tested with Plogue Sforzando
    • The Decent Sampler version works with the free Decent Samples player plugin. Download it here.
  • Convolution reverb with level knob
  • Sample rate: 24-bit 48khz
  • Library size: 168MB (Kontakt is 87 MB compressed)
