Product Description for the Pianoteq Chromatic Collection

Vibes :

Two virtual vibraphones, V-M and V-B, reproduce faithfully the characteristic sound of two well-known vibraphone brands. The V-M is a virtual copy of a Musser vibraphone (USA) that belongs to the famous French vibraphonist Dany Doriz. The V-B is a virtual copy of a Bergerault vibraphone (France).

The vibraphone is based on metallic bars, thin-walled tube resonators, and damper pads, bringing the specific tonal characteristics. Thanks to the physical model, the range of the vibraphones are extended from 3 to 5 octaves. Each instrument comes in several variants. By using interface features such as mallet hardness and tremolo, you can customize them to your own taste.

Celeste 

This pack includes three instruments: Celesta, Glockenspiel, and Toy Piano.

The Celesta has an appearance of an acoustic upright piano. It consists of metal plates stroke by felt hammers resembling piano hammers and there is also a sustain pedal. The timbre is very soft and subtle. The Pianoteq virtual copy is modeled after a modern five-octave German brand.

The Glockenspiel is also made of metal plates but is stroke by hard metal mallets held by the musician, and is smaller and higher in pitch. The timbre is much more brilliant than the celesta. The Pianoteq virtual copy, modeled after a modern French brand, has been slightly extended to cover four octaves.

Often encountered as a child's toy, Toy Pianos are usually no more than 50 cm (20 inches) in width and made out of wood or plastic. The sound is produced by small hammers striking metal rods. Its unique timbre resembles more the celesta or the glockenspiel than the piano. This unusual sound has been somewhat of a key appeal to many

composers and performers through the centuries, who used the toy piano as a real musical instrument. The Pianoteq virtual copy is modeled after a two-octave Michelson toy piano and is extended to four octaves.

The celesta is featured in Tchaikovsky's «Nutcracker» movement «Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy», the glockenspiel in Mozart's «Die Zauberflöte» (The Magic Flute), and the toy piano in Yann’s soundtrack of the movie «Le fabulous Destin d'Amélie Poulain» («Amélie from Montmartre»).

Thanks to Pianoteq's physical model, the instruments come in several variants including an exclusive humanization feature for the strike point, achieving a variation that makes them more expressive sounding, particularly true for the glockenspiel where the musician never hits the plates at the exact same point. It is possible to add features of traditional pianos, such as damping, sustain pedal, and soft pedal.

Xylo add-ons :

Xylophone and Bass Marimba are similar to the vibraphone but are using wooden bars instead of aluminum. Each bar, that vibrates when hit with mallets, is paired with a metallic resonator which is tuned to amplify the sound.

The origin of the xylophone dates back several thousand years in Africa and South East Asia. The marimba appeared at the same time and is today the symbol of Guatemalan music. Due to its huge size, the bass marimba sounds more than two octaves below the xylophone. Very popular both, they are used in various musical styles from classical to Latin and rock.

The Pianoteq virtual copies of these two instruments are respectively modeled after a modern 3½-octave French brand xylophone and a modern 5-octave French brand bass marimba. Thanks to the sophisticated Pianoteq physical model, they come in several variants and benefit from the recently developed humanization feature which allows varying the strike point, adding to the musician's interpretation a vivid and stunning realism.
