_good tines, these are the good tines. A tricked out glockenspiel instrument for Ableton that keeps the heads ringin’ with custom FX and blend controls for different mic positions.


Most of the time when you record a glockenspiel, it’s an afterthought, so you quickly throw up a mic and just get it done. The result? Mediocre mallets. We recorded this “jeu de timbres” with a pair of Rupert Neve RNR1 ribbon mics in stereo, and a vintage East German omnidirectional dynamic mic from the 60s called a Funkberater MD30-2 for the room sound. You can easily blend between the stereo pair and the room mic for that über glock sound, plus add real-time custom FX with the included macro controls, and filter control with your modulation wheel.


Sharp bells or lush metallic pads, you want the best, and won’t settle for less.


Leave your cares behind, these are the good tines.

For best results, we recommend updating to the latest version of Ableton Live for patch/preset compatibility.


Ableton error messages such as, "Only audio effects can be placed in this kind of track." or, "Preset can not be loaded. It's probably broken." - usually indicate that our presets were made in a version of Ableton that is newer than yours. If you run into issues, please contact us for help!


Important: Ableton Live files are not backwards compatible. We generally create new releases in the current version of Ableton Live. Currently, all of our Ableton releases are for version 11.0 or greater. Using older versions of Ableton Live will most likely not allow you to use our newest releases. Consider updating your version of Ableton to the latest version to ensure good compatibility.


Some of our Ableton releases are for specific editions of Ableton only (Intro, Standard, Suite). Please ensure you have the correct version before purchasing.
