We have just added a new Fortepiano library to our on-line store.
PIANO E FORTE
This is a brand new recording of a new built fortepiano by Dutch clavichord builder W.A. Ruys who set up a partnership with the distinguished clavichord maker Koen Vermeij. The instrument has a key span from F1-F6. All 60 notes were chromatically sampled at 3 velocities. We recorded the sustain and moderator settings also for extra expressiveness. For this recording the instrument was tuned in Equal Temperament tuning, although A=430 in the original instrument. We adjusted the tuning on the patch level (not the wave file level) to allow the user to use the original pitch and timbre.
You can listen to a set of mp3 recordings here: Dry recording and With Reverb
The library is available in GigaStudio 2 (16 bit uncompressed, compatible with all sampler formats) and GigaStudio 3 (24 bit) or Kontakt. All formats come on one DVD disk.
Owners of Muse Receptor running Kompakt can get special patches that make this library the ultimate historic piano fuel for a high-tech box. Contact us by email for details.
The price of the library is $ 50. Shipping will start right after the NAMM show.
