The samples were created by filling
wine glasses with water and tuning them with a
chromatic tuner to the appropriate pitches (drop by
drop). Distropolis originally planned to recreate
all three octaves of the real instrument, but ran
out of sufficiently large wine glasses. An enhanced
version of the Glass Armanica may be released in the
future if this problem can be overcome...
- A single octave of samples running from MIDI
note 72 to 84 (Octave 6).
- Amplitude ADSR controls.
- Reverb with width, size and mix controls.
- Hi-Cut and Master Volume controls.
Glass Armanica v1.0 beta is free and
is available for Windows as a VST instrument
