You're going to want to go to plugin settings and add the plugin. Then add the vst to the channel rack.

Wow. This is stupid good sounding. This is surprising for a free download. Outstanding audio quality, and nice controls for nuance. The reverb isn't super necessary, but nice if you want to dial it in from the instrument plugin vs an effects plugin.

Guys...this is a VST Instrument that comes without an Installer. DON'T drag and drop or open this directly with FL Studio, as FL uses and searches Zip for Project Files. Simply extract the contained .dll and the folder into your VST Folder. (Usually somewhere on your System Drive)

Does this plugin work in Logic, have placed unzipped files in plugins library (components and VST) but no joy. It isn't listed in Logic.

just copy the .dll file into your VST folder (look up which it is in the manage plugins option in fl studio if you don't know) and click on "find plugins" in the plugin manager, it should then be orange highlighted and you can click on it and choose "favorite" on the left side. then it sould appear in your regular plugin list.

ESTE VSTi esta como siempre lo de ALLAN VISTA EXCELENTE LO UNICO ES QUE SI LE FALTA AGREGAR AL SONIDO DE MARIMBA UNA LIGERA VIBRACION QUE TIENE ESE BELLOS INSTRUMENTO .. EN MI PAIS SE TOCA MUCHO LA MARIMBA ES COMUN VER GENTE EN EL CENTRO DE LA CIUDAD TOCANDOLA EN LA CALLE.. Y POR ESO DISTINGO BIEN EL REAL SONIDO DE ELLA. SI A ESTE SE LE AGREGA UNA LIGERA VIBRACION SIMILAR AL DEL SITAR DE LA INDIA PERO MAS LEVE QUEDARA PERFECTO IGUAL AL DE LA VERDADERA MARIMBA... LA RAZON DE ESA LIGERA VIBRACION ES QUE LA MARIMBA EN LAS CAJAS DE RESONANCIA AL FINAL DE LA MISMA POSEE UN ORIFICIO CON CERA DE AVISPA Y EN ELLA SE ADHIERE UN PEDACITO DE MEMBRANA DE INTESTINO DE CERDO YA SECA Y ESO HACE QUE AL GOLPEAR LA TECLA EL VIENTO DENTRO DE LA CAJA DE RESONACIA HAGA VIBRAR ESA MEMBRANA DANDO ASI UN SONIDO AL FINAL DEL GOLPE TAL COMO SI TUVIERA UNA CUERDA INTERNA FLOJA SEMEJANTE AL DEL SITAR DE LA INDIA.LE DOY 5 ESTRELLAS PUES ESO ES UN SIMPLE DETALLE QUE SE PODRA UN DIA QUIZA MEJORAR SOLAMENTE

OK, here's a how to install in mac for corks like myself. It may help others. Download "Mac OS VST" and put the file on "Library - Audio - Plugins - VST". Then, download "Mac AU" and put the file on "Library - Audio - Plugins - Components". Now my Mac can see it. THANK YOU ALAN, GREAT PLUGIN!!!

Hey, I am able to load the .vst in Cakewalk Sonor X3 but I only have one preset, the drop-down and increment button don't do anything. I am stumped, please let me know if there's anything I can try. Btw, I setting this up for my 12 year old son so he can practice scales for marimba for school band. He will use a K-Board, it's a little small but besides that it works very well.

Hi. There is no preset system, the drop down and button is from Cakewalk I guess. Great to hear that your boy will practice with Marimbaphonic ! Cheers

Hi. I have a problem. I just downloaded the vst for mac. There is only an .mse file and a mscr. file. When i put them into my vst folder, and refresh my plugin list, nothing happens. Can you help me?
Anonymous Nov 21 2015

You should extract the whole archive in your vst directory. There is no dll on mac but a "marimbaphonic.vst" folder.
Joel Nov 22 2015

I have extracted everything - there is a content folder, which i've put in the vst folder, but still nothing happens. Can you tell me what i am doing wrong? :)

I have the same problem. I`ve downloaded other plugin to use in Fl Studio 12 and it was rar-ed and when I unrared it, in the folder were only the .mse extention files. How to I open them, the Fl Studio can`t read them like this. Thanks.

Should you copy the whole "Marimbaphonic.vst" folder ?

Extract the zip file in your vst folder and keep the extracted files and folder exactly the way it is organized. It says "cannot load instrument" because it can't find the .mse file.
sammy Jan 18 2016

I have the same problem. Could you please tell me step by step what file I have to keep in the vst folder? The complete zip data? When I do this it doesnt work.

Yes, the complete zip data in your vst folder... Don't know why you get this message if you did it this way ? What OS and DAW do you run ?

Sound is awesome, but I'm havin trouble with reverb, I want to remove reverb, but everytime i play te song in REAPER, the plugin boosts reverb to THE MAX. I move it down again, but EVERYTIME I press pIay, reverb is back...
Alan Jun 24 2015

The reverb level might recorded be in your midi track (frenquent with midifiles). Look for CC91 and erase all data.

Making instruments from public domain samples and give it free is a good idea. But there are clicks at the end of samples. No matter how you turn release-knob. It`s very annoying to hear them, I have to remove them manually after bounce. But who cares, freebies always have its deficiencies. Thank you anyway.
Alan Jan 31 2015
Jan 31 2015
Hi, samples comes 100% with no clicks, I edited them all one by one with a great care. I have then done some test with the plug-in and it reveals no clicks at all. There is maybe a lack of memory from your system causing clicks...
Gravis Feb 01 2015

Alan, i trust you, proper sampling is a hard work. But please try to test it with sample rate higher than 44.1 kHz.

Wouldn't have guessed by looking at the GUI that this VST would have such sound clarity as it does. I suppose the old cliche is true. "Never judge a book by it's cover". Fun stuff, thanks.
