ThePhonoLoop – Cassette Mallets.02 (KONTAKT)

Cassette Mallets. 02, the successor to the Cassette Mallets.01, continues to explore the sound of experimental mallets with a variety of sounds, more decks to choose from, and a .02 interface. As with Cassette Keys .01 and .02, these two tool libraries complement each other very well.

Cassette Mallets.02 contains three instruments, each covering a different sonic territory. Sound 01 is a mixture of old glockenspiel records recorded on a thin steel plate, Sound 02 is a two-octave xylophone mixed with some corrugated sheet resonances, and Sound 03 is a mixture of the same xylophone but recorded with three mallets attached to an old beds. a mattress spring with copper wire to create a random “grainy” pattern. All three sounds are also seasoned with additional synthesis techniques for a fuller sound and wider range on the keyboard.

Both Sound 01 and Sound 02 contain 5 dynamic layers, while Sound 03 contains 4 dynamic layers – all sounds were recorded using 3 different cassette decks. There are 2565 samples in total – 305 samples per deck for Sound 01 and Sound 02 and 244 samples per deck for Sound 03, plus 3 noise samples from each deck (1.63 GB of uncompressed 24-bit WAV files). .
