Mallets' powerful GUI offers all eight instruments on one patch to be edited, played, blended, and recorded together. No sub menus or separate patches. Mallets has all the controls you need at your fingertips!
The highest attention to detail was given in the recording of Mallets, offering dry, stereo samples with up to 4 velocity layers and 5 round robins per instrument.
MULTIPLE MALLET TYPES
Marimba • Soft • Hard • Rods
Xylophone • Soft • Medium Soft • Medium Hard • Hard
Glockenspiel • Soft • Medium • Hard
Tubular Bells • Hard
Glass Marimba • Clean • More Noise

OPTIMIZED FOR CREATIVE LAYERING
Each instrument is given its own controls with Mallet Type, Volume, Pan, Stereo Width, Octave Remapping, ADSR, and Extended Range. When engaged, Extended Range remaps the playable range of the instrument by stretching the lowest and highest mapped samples from C0 to C7. Additionally, Octave remapping gives users the ability to adjust the position of each instrument on the keyboard up and down by two octaves.
MODULATE YOUR SOUND
Utilize the lower portion of the GUI to quickly apply your own LFO and global LowPass filter. Choose between four separate wave forms and four different LFO types.
CREATE ROLLS AND ADD EFFECTS
The Rolls creator allows you to generate and customize your own mallet rolls. Triggering one note will simulate two hands striking that single note, while triggering two notes will simulate the back and forth striking with two hands on the respective notes. Further craft your sound with the seven built-in effects including Tune, Equalizer, Distortion, Delay, Reverb, Transient Master, and Compressor.
