So I am definitely liking the new percussion library. However, one thing I don't quite understand is why you only used a 4.3 octave marimba instead of a full 5 octave one. This was one thing I was looking forward to having when this came out, and I was slightly disappointed when I didn't see it. I know it's just a small extra range, but more and more contemporary composers I see are using it in their works.

Also (and this is just being picky and not as big of a deal), for the rolls on the marimba it seems like the same speed roll was used for the full keyboard. Maybe different roll speeds could be added, as typically the lower you go on the keyboard, the slower roll speed lets the instrument speak better. (I haven't had much time to mess with this yet, so I might just be missing this somewhere).

These were just a couple things I noticed and thought I'd point out.
