Healing Vibe – happy inspirations of all sorts

Inspiration makes me happy. And I don’t believe in limiting my inspirations. When I see a potential new one, I say, “Go for it!”

Happy Collaborations

Once again, I’m glad to say that there are a number of collaborations in my creative life. I’ve started playing out again, mostly because I started jamming with Rose Alaimo.

I’m really psyched about performing with Rose. Not only is she a stellar singer-songwriter, but she’s an all-around genuine and generous human being.

Marimba, Not Vibes

Kontakt with an example virtual instrument

Recently, Rose asked me about marimba sample libraries. I told her that I have a favorite. And just as quickly, I created the track featured in this post.

Now, she did not choose the marimba instrument that I recommended. (After all, there are so many to choose from!) However, she — quite unknowingly — became an inspiration for one of my “Healing Melodies” tracks. (Read on to find out which marimba I recommended.)

A Happy Vibe

Some people will say that because this song is in a minor key, it can’t be happy. But I beg to differ. I think the vibe in this track is incredibly hopeful and happy.

Speaking of hopeful, I hope you enjoy it. And if you don’t, I’m still quite happy (oops) to chat with you about it.

May Rim Bah

But back to that sample library. The marimba instrument that I mentioned is my favorite is Grand Marimba by SonicCouture. The samples, the layout, the features, and the sound of this instrument are spectacular in my humble opinion. I honestly cannot find anything to fault it on.

To make things even better, I have appreciated many other instruments from SonicCouture over the years. So, I found it very easy to create a whole piece using only their sample libraries. These inspire me. And so that’s what I present you with.
