Kinda random, but just in case it's of interest to anyone. I recently bought Pianoteq 6 Stage for my wife to use with her shiny new Pearl MalletStation. We got the Vibes and Marimba / Xylophone instrument packs, plus a couple of freebees (tubular bells and church bells). They all sound pretty fantastic, and it's easy as heck to use. Most of us here probably focus on Pianoteq for use with digital pianos, but I can also recommend it for digital percussion!

(If you're curious about MalletStation, FYI: https://youtu.be/8MC--HVyhIs )

I have no doubt that Pianoteq percussion instruments are more faithful to their acoustic counterparts than are Pianoteq pianos. smile

LOL. Not that I'm a percussion expert (or novice, even ... ), but they sound pretty good to me!

Is she a percussionist or just learning? Any recordings to share?

Yes and yes. smile Back in the day, she was a talented snare drummer, drum corps and concert band in high school, and then a couple of years of music school before changing her major. She didn't do a ton with mallets at the time. Several years ago, she got back into drums, focusing on set, but is now interested in really learning mallets, including all the theory, ear training, etc., that she doesn't feel she got enough of way back when. So she's got some remediation to do, but I suspect she'll progress at an accelerated rate compared to a complete newbie.

No recordings at the moment, but we are hoping to do some piano / mallet duets at some point! smile
