RAINBOW XYLO KONTAKT
A Toy Xylophone for Hip Hop, Trap, Pop & EDM
When we make Kontakt instruments, we don't set out to make simple sounding, but well recorded instruments like so many other Kontakt libraries out there. We want to create uniquely voiced instruments that fit into a sonic niche, we as producers would want to use. We wanted a simple Xylophone for Hip Hop, Trap, Pop, and EDM.
That's why we made the Rainbow Xylo.
The rainbow toy xylophone is a classic toy instrument. I had one growing up. The physical instrument itself sounds really good for a toy, but it lacks any real, playable range. It only has one C Major octave. This actually is a huge component of the unique sound our Kontakt version produces.
We could have sampled a real xylophone, but only having 8 real notes to sample made us get creative. We ended up using granular synthesis to create the notes that don't exist on the physical instrument. We layered synthesized bell sounds with the sampled material to create 5 unique xylophone instruments unlike anything you have in your library.
Each of the 5 Kontakt presets or patches is it's own unique instrument, with unique samples. Each of the 5 is ready to be the main instrument in your next beat or production.
