This is the only freebie instrument offered by SampleSoundBank.com. It is a kids xylophone sampled in stereo. You have 8 notes just like the real thing, but each note has been recorded eight times so that when you play each note, you will randomly hear one of the eight recorded samples for that note (this is known as a random round-robin effect).
The purpose of this free offering is so that you can trial one of our products before purchase. As SampleSoundBank.com products are licenses for virtual digitally-sampled instruments the licenses cannot be “returned” to the seller, so this is why refunds are not possible. If you can get this instrument going on your system and like our other products, then you are invited to purchase them, otherwise please do not buy any of our products and we encourage you to leave our web site! 🙂
This instrument is an “SFZ instrument” which is a free, cross-platform sampler format for virtual instruments (musical instruments played by computer software). The instrument is composed of a .SFZ file which points to a collection of audio samples. The SFZ file tells the sampler how to perform the notes when they are triggered by MIDI in a digital audio workstation; in other words, when you play a note, the SFZ file tells the sampler which audio files to play. Cakewalk has a free SFZ player but the one SampleSoundBank prefers is Plogue’s Sforzando.
