Premium Instruments. Detailed Scoring Sound
Scoring Mallets features premium custom instruments from Marimba One, Malletech and Yamaha. We chose custom Mallets that combine medium soft outer material with a harder more articulate core to bring out both warmth and resonance from the instruments.

Ultra idiomatic playback. From single notes to Ripple Rolls
Scoring Mallets makes effective use of its massive sample pool for a lot more than plenty of velocity layers, round robins and release samples. We have designed custom scripts for authentic Trills, Rolls, and Glissandi with complete control over tempo and humanization. You can apply Crescendo, time shifting, and velocity drifts all in real time if you wish.

Acoustic Positioner™. Truthful positioning around the stage
HandHeldSound developed a totally new concept with instrument positioning. Unlike panning, instrument positioning is a spatial effect which relies on the acoustic properties of the recording space. Scoring Mallets was recorded in a beautiful scoring room and with our Acoustic Positioner you are now able to move instruments around the stage to better fit your production, especially when doing scoring and using a variety of instruments from different libraries. Acoustic Positioner offers true positioning capabilities without relying on convolution and panning mock-ups. The engine is based on specific microphone arrays and placement that allowed us to create a comprehensive time and phase matrix that is entirely sample-based. There are no gimmicks and no simulation. You are actually moving the instrument around the stage smoothly with virtually no extra CPU usage!

Playback control. Complete control over timing and performance
HandHeldSound enhanced the playability using a logarithmic velocity sensitivity control that allows you to fit the velocity curve to any playing style. There are key performance controls that include Crescendo/Diminuendo and auto detection of Rolls, Trills, and Glissando. Playback can be controlled further utilizing adjustable time and velocity drifts.

Every performance nuance is easily controlled. The custom playback scripts infuse performances with a ‘human’ feel through a variety of built-in humanization algorithms.
