    Jazz vibes sound - vibrato issue

    Hi,

    I am a jazz musician mainly playing piano these days but did play the vibes in a band many years ago.

    Today I am using Cool Vibes as a VST-i plugin in my digital Cubase based PC studio. Cool Vibes have a pretty realistic and good sound, but the speed of the vibrato can´t be changed.

    Would anyone out there know about a good Vibes sound where the vibrato can either be slowed down or totally stopped? I am hunting for vibes sound like those of Gary Burton or Milt Jackson.

    Grateful for any hints.

    Kindest regards,

    Bruno Nilsson

    I think that the Vibraphone in the Garritan JABB has controls for vibrato/tremelo.

    I just checked and JABB has tremelo speed and level controls.

    JABB is the good solution. Why didn´t I think of that.

    I really like the sound of these http://www.edgesounds.com/vibraphone.aspx

    Haven´t tried them, though

    Thank you Kape!

    I listened to the demos but I am sorry to say - too metallic in my taste. Not very realistic vibes sound I´m afraid.

    In Kontakt can't you just add an LFO modifier to the amp? That would give you something very similar to the vibe motor, and you could control the speed. Then you'd have to add that whirr and grinding noise as a sound effect to complete the illusion.

    VSL mallet percussions are pretty good. From no vib to fast vib, soft, medium, hard sticks, tremolo, mute, ... As a percussionist, I know what I mean

    Thank you so much for your replies regarding Kontakt and Vienna Sample Library,

    I shall experiment a little with my Kontakt 2 as suggested.

    Unfortunately I don´t have the VSL but it might be worth considering to buy it. Will dig into this one deeper.

    Kindest regards,
    Bruno
