IK Multimedia Malletopia SampleTank Percussion Instrument

Exotic chromatic percussion library for SampleTank with multiple articulations and colorful sampled spaces
MFR# 1049-262

Product Description

IK Multimedia Malletopia features a vast assortment of chromatic percussion instruments. It includes marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, glockenspiel and orchestra chimes (aka tubular bells) played using an expert player’s assortment of mallet varieties of yarn, felt, wood and metals. In addition, the sounds were matched with sampled spaces created using rare and vintage reverbs. It includes 8.5 GB of sample content and 125 SampleTank 4 instrument presets of exotic timbres that fit into cinematic, pop or even electronic productions.

Mallets beyond limits

Most all-in-one sample collections include a marimba and vibraphone and, if you're lucky, a glockenspiel and xylophone and perhaps even orchestra chimes. But what you don't normally get is the variety of each instrument played with different mallets at multiple velocities. Malletopia contains top source instruments that were captured with an articulated assortment of mallets.

A marimba struck with a hard yarn mallet sounds vastly different than a marimba struck with a felt mallet or wooden mallet. You'll even find hits recorded using metal mallets on instruments like vibraphone that normally don't call for such articulations, providing you with more exotic timbres that fit into cinematic, pop or even electronic productions.

The source instruments were recorded with deep round robin techniques so that each SampleTank preset plays and sounds like the real thing, even with repeated notes.

A backdrop to make any scene stand out

Malletopia is definitely not just a rigid library of classical and jazz sounds. In addition to sampled instruments, you'll find lush atmospheres from several highly sought-after vintage hardware reverb units. The sampled spaces are utterly controllable with all of SampleTank’s filters, envelopes and other synthesis functions.

And the sampled spaces are also provided without the mallet instruments where they create utterly vibey pads and even vocal-like atmospheres of their own. Use these atmospheres as drones, effects or ambient backgrounds in any kind of music, anywhere you need a lush setting full of character or instant spacey mood.

Expand your sonic universe

No matter what kind of music you produce, Malletopia provides the vast assortment of chromatic percussion color to fit any track. Whether you are an electronic music producer, a classical composer, a jazz orchestrator or a pop artist, Malletopia expands your sonic universe into new reaches with the ultimate collection of chromatic percussion sounds and variations.

SampleTank 4

The new SampleTank 4 has been re-designed from the ground up to be every musician’s “go to” workstation for music creation, with a completely new rescalable interface, a massively expanded sample library and a new cutting-edge sound engine with efficient disk streaming, to deliver more powerful music creation tools than you ever imagined. What might usually take dozens of plug-ins can be accomplished right inside SampleTank 4, for lightning-fast workflow that keeps your inspiration going.

Malletopia works inside SampleTank 4 CS, offering you all the features of the new SampleTank 4 engine and over 4 GB of fresh sounds to get started.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
