The vibraphone’s tremolo tone comes from the motorized fans that open and close over its resonator tubes, but this constant modulation makes it difficult to sample. While previous attempts faked this effect with filters, Soniccouture has solved the problem by sampling the entire instrument twice for authentic modulation and full control of its shimmering tone.


Soniccouture develop virtual instruments and sample libraries for composers and producers. They have been working in close partnership with Native Instruments and the KONTAKT platform since 2005 to change the way sampled instruments are regarded by musicians.

Combining unprecedented levels of detail with organic performance programming, groundbreaking instruments like Pan Drums and Balinese Gamelan quickly established Soniccouture as one of the most original and innovative instrument developers. Today, with a wide catalogue of instruments already available, Soniccouture continue to explore the limits of what is possible with sampling.
