I just added a new release to our collection of libraries. The idea was to make the Celesta Gig available on a separate disk (not bundled with a grand piano).
The new disk is called “Post Orchestral
Instrument Collection”. It contains the following sections:
Celesta (One of the most beautiful instruments was sampled in the orchestra pit at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam), Glockenspiel (The file is small but has a very strong and bright tone), Register Piano (A historic recording of a remarkable and truely unique instrument), Harmonium, Hackbrett, Marimba and Vibraphone complete this collection
14 special instruments. The Full PreparedPiano for J Gage\'s Music for Prepared Piano is the prescribed registration with all the bolds and screws between and over the Steinway C piano strings. The Pedal piano is another registration we made for John Cage\'s music. Other presets are: GongPiano (really sounds like gongs but are piano strings!), Knock (when you hit the piano real hard with the pedal down), Paper (pieces of newspaper between the high strings), Lood (pieces of metal between the strings), Scrape (using a coin to scrape along a low note string) and others complete this collection of unusual and very usable piano sounds.
The four basic playing styles captured in one instrument each. Forte, Pianissimo, Fortissimo and MezzoForte played samples are used to create very playable piano\'s. These instruments are perfect for quick piano sequencing when you don\'t want to load a large-scale piano patch.
All instruments are in one Gig file.
