Using a newly extended model, PianoTeq can now reproduce the sound of a vibraphone. Two virtual vibraphones, V-M and V-B, are provided as embedded add-ons and are included in the latest update of PianoTeq 3 for demo evaluation.
The V-M is a virtual copy of a Musser vibraphone that belongs to famous French vibraphonist Dany Doriz. The V-B is a virtual copy of a Bergerault vibraphone that belongs to the Condorcet studio in Toulouse (France).
Thanks to the physical model, the range of the vibraphones is extended from three to five octaves. Each instrument is provided with several variants, and by using interface features, such as mallet hardness and tremolo, the user can customize them to his/her taste.
