The VibysM is a 3 1/2 octaves Musser concert vibraphone. This is one of the best vibraphone models ever made.
It was played with soft mallets during the recording session to capture the maximum of dynamics and the softness of this instrument. The Vibraphone was very popular in the Jazz music of the 50's but somehow got used a lot less since then.
Today it is used more and more in popular music as well as modern jazz and even electronic music.
VibysM comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 3 (requires v3.1.6 or later).
We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products.

Best vibes library on the market that doesn't need Kontakt. I play vibes and use this with my electronic mallet instrument. Sounds great for jazz as well other genres like rock or indie that occasionally use vibes; however, mallets are perhaps a little hard for some classical repertoire but definitely gets the job done.

My go-to vibes. Only issue is getting the velocities just right. The sustain pedal works just like the real deal, vibrato is pretty good and it's nice you can adjust the depth. Only thing missing (thank God!) is the whoosh, whoosh, whoosh of the vibrato motor.
