Sounds from The Woods

Contemporary sounding Budapest Marimba designed for creating fast sequences and inspiring tremolo beds for contemporary sound production. Unlike traditional marimba libraries we focused on transient rich, bright sounds and we also added some synth and ambience sublayers to fit in any genres from electronic, jazz to filmscore.


3 Mic Positions

Transient rich sampling with close (1x Shure SM57) + mid mic (2x AT35) postitions

+ Synths & FX

Add a subtle weight or extra character with analog synth layers, tape, dimension and space effects

Pro Sound

Recorded in Budapest, performed by Nandor Weisz, percussionist of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra
