Description : Cassette Mallets.02, the successor to Cassette Mallets.01, continues to explore the sound of experimental hammer instruments with different sounds, more decks to choose from and a .02 interface. As with Cassette Keys .01 and .02, these two tool libraries complement each other very well.

Full version of Kontakt 5.6.6 (or higher) required – not compatible with Kontakt Player

Additional Information :
Cassette Mallets.02 contains three instruments, each one covering a different sound territory. Sound 01 is a mix of old glockenspiel plates recorded on a thin steel plate, Sound 02 is a 2 octave xylophone mixed with some corrugated sheet resonances and Sound 03 is a mix of the same xylophone, but recorded using three mallets attached to an old bed mattress spring with a copper wire to create a random, ‘granular’ pattern. All three sounds are also spiced up with additional synthesis techniques for a fuller sound and to widen their range on a keyboard.
Both Sound 01 and Sound 02 contain 5 dynamic layers, while Sound 03 contains 4 dynamic layers – all sounds were recorded using 3 different cassette decks. Overall, there are 2565 samples – 305 samples per deck for Sound 01 and Sound 02, and 244 samples per deck for Sound 03, plus there are also 3 noise samples from each deck (1.63 GB of uncompressed 24-bit WAV files) .
