Thoughts

Bombay Glassware 2 allows you to introduce the haunting sound of struck and bowed glass into your tracks. While the library is small and specialized, what it does it does quite well. With 10 round robins across four velocity layers, Bombay Glassware 2’s six articulations feel organic and alive. This instrument is sampled very well. With a unique key switching system, the instrument allows you to play with single or layered articulations, meaning you can even layer all the articulations together if you want. This is a nifty feature that adds a level of depth and complexity to the sound beyond what you would expect to get in a library such as this.

With a straightforward interface, Bombay Glassware 2 introduces another unique feature with a multi-layered six pattern sequencer. This allows you to sequence the velocity and pitch of the instrument across six different sequencers, allowing you to create complex sequenced patterns that can be played with a single key. This isn’t an instrument you’re likely to pull out every day, but it’s an instrument that shines when you’re looking to introduce the beautiful and haunting sound of struck and bowed glass into your tracks. Whether you’re looking to create beautiful and fragile transitions for your tension tracks or a melodic alternative to traditional mallet instruments like the marimba or xylophone, Bombay Glassware 2 can help you add a sense of mystery and beauty to your tracks.
