MARIMBA GLISSANDO Using the Microtape + format, no.17 features a selection of over 115 glissando effects made with a marimba. Most of these have been looped, and vary in length.
Both looped and un-looped nki's are included, with about two thirds of the samples played back at half speed (therefore an octave lower) at 3.75 ips.
For the 3.75ips set, every note from c0 - c6 is assigned a diff wav - configured in an nki as looped, and also in another nki as un-looped. The 7.5ips samples (different slices) range from f0 to c4. In both sets, the higher end of the range features some longer loops and passages. 69meg
ABSTRACT POLYSIX SCI-FI 135 different abstract synth tones mapped to every key, made with the Korg Polysix - in WAV format.
Inspired by the soundtrack by Gil Mellé to the 1971 cult sci-fi classic 'The Andromeda Strain',
much sonic mileage can be attained from these
samples through experimentation with the various microtape controls and effects.
The WAVs and loops can also be loaded into applications such as ABLETON LIVE
