Jonathans Glockenspiel, is a free instrument for Kontakt created by Jonathan Howe, it consists of 1 and a half octave and sampled 7 velocity layers for each note. Naturally it can play in the keys of C, G and F but the developer has stretched some samples to make it a little more versatile.
Jonathan also colored these red on the keyboard so you know when you are using stretched samples and can avoid them if you don’t want to. Additionally Jonathan added a few sounds of dropping the mallet one octave below the playing range, making it 101 individual samples!
It also has a simple reverb on/off switch, a knob for the size of the reverb, a function that randomly detunes the keys and a simple 3-Band EQ.
The hardest parts for Jonathan were the scripting, especially making the reverb work as intended, and finding the low C bar which took at least an hour.
Last but not least he has thrown in a little pad-like patch derived from the samples but covering a bigger range on the keyboard.
