  • A nine marimba odyssey

    Nine marimbas placed all over the Hall at AIR Studios to create what can only be described as a tuned percussion choir. An infectious selection of single hits, through to transfixing choral tremolando patches.

    The overview panel

    Smc0169 Gui1 Full
    This is the main interface for melodic instruments. Its default view displays all available playing techniques, has a simple microphone mixer and includes the main feature controllers.

    General controls panel

    Smc0169 Gui2 Full
    This view allows further in-depth control of the instrument, showing all available signals and feature controllers, as well as the ability to purge techniques from memory to reduce system usage.

    The Ostinatum

    Smc0169 Gui3 Full
    In this view you can add notes to a pattern sequencer, select which key it triggers on and then play for instant ostinato creation. It’s like an arpeggiator on a synthesiser.
