Crystal Glass Resonance VST/AU

Product Overview

Mankind has found countless uses for glass over the centuries, but one of the most interesting yet least prevalent is in music. Crystal wine glasses of the ordinary kitchen variety can be brought to resonance by rubbing a damp finger around the rim of the glass in a circular motion.

Various speeds and even dynamics can be distinguished with enough practice. Although the instrument is not as useful in a melodic setting, it can create great pad foundations and add weight to a chord or instrument via doubling.

"Tings" made from tapping the side of the glass are also useful for articulating chords and melodic phrases, with a tone similar to a glockenspiel but more open and, well, glassy.

This download contains both a Win and Mac VST/AU installer (does not contain a Kontakt version)
