Checking Out: Celeste, Grand Marimba & Vibraphone by Soniccouture

Soniccouture make damn fine instruments.

This trio of tuned percussion magic further cements Soniccouture’s reputation as one of the most meticulous sampling teams out there along with their expert programming skills. The sound quality is best in class and recorded very dry so these instruments can fit into any musical situation. The sound design is awe-inspiring and the presets are great jumping-off points for your own creations. I love the Jammer and Weaver functions which help you create sequences and arpeggios.

The GUI across all of the instruments is stunning. So, what isn’t to like? These are my go-to orchestral and sound design-tuned percussion instruments. They fit in with any orchestral library I can think of and for more TV-based work such as crime and tension, the sound design is on point. If you’re looking for a tuned percussion suite, look no further.

Celeste, Grand Marimba & Vibraphone normally sell for £114 each from Soniccouture
