Computer Music Magazine “If a Vibraphones what you need, this one certainly does the business” 8/10 The PSI Vibraphone is a 1.9Gb 37 note virtual instrument using Native Instruments lossless .ncw compressed format samples.
Each note of the 1960s 3 octave Premier 751 vibraphone has been meticulously sampled in our cinematic live room. Mark Cousins - senior writer Music Tech Magazine "Compared to the sterile sound of many sampled vibraphones, PSI’s Vibraphone really captures the character and charm of the real instrument. Given the use of ambient mics placement (in addition to the close mics), you can really feel the air around the instrument, and as a result, the vibraphone tends to sit in the mix in a more naturalistic way.
The PSI Vibraphone is a great choice for retro-style tracks, although it can also be a great addition to a virtual orchestra setup, or another productions requiring a more naturalistic vibraphone sound."
