    Did you know the Dulcitone?

    Some days ago I've found out this webpage, which is about a sampled Dulcitone.

    www.virb.com/dulcitone1884

    I got the EXS24 version, but there are more formats available, too.
    It made my day! Lovely and inspiring sound, and a very fair price...

    And by the way, Pendle, the developer, is a very nice and supportive guy

    Glad I've been helpful with the link, these ones are "refreshing" sounds to me :-)
    I'm sure many others will agree and get these libraries.

    Definitely. What I love about them is that they play with all the character of the originals. So many sample libraries try to iron out every last idiosyncracy of the instruments - correct every last quirk of tuning, erratic notes, thunks in the action, etc. I do understand this approach - after all, a sample library which captures all the quirks of an instrument is always limited to them. But it is refreshing, once in a while to play samples and have it feel a little unpredictable, rather than like some mythical perfect, bland instrument.

    Here you get the instruments, warts and all. I spent last night playing with the harpsichord, experimenting with the 'preparedness' level control - I haven't had so much fun in ages.
