    Baroque samples?

    Does anyone know of any high quality sample libraries specilalized on baroque ensambles. I'm thinking recorders, lutes, gambas and such.

    Any recommendations would be highly appreciated.

    Re: Baroque samples?

    I have an ancient but much used CD of Historical Instrument Samples - Volume 11 of the McGill University Master Samples range. I notice that it was issued in 1989 - so it'll be no surprise if I tell you that although it's multi-sampled there are no velocity levels.

    It might still be possible to get hold of it http://www.mcgill.ca/music/events/samples/ will take you in the right direction.

    Instruments included are;
    Bass Viol
    Tenor Viol
    Treble Viol
    Renaissance Eight Course Lute
    Archlute
    Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass Crumhorns
    Renaissance Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bassinett, Quart and Great Bass Recorder (salivating yet?)
    Baroque Soprano, Alto, Tenor Recorder.
    Treble Cornett
    Alto Shawm
    Baroque Oboe
    Oboe D'Amore
    Classical Oboe
    Harpsichord 8', 8' and 4' stops and Buff Stop

    These were loaded into a S6000 (remember them?) and did stalwart service on many a son-e-lumiere and an award winning production of Twelfth Night, often mixed with synths and other sound sources.
    How I'd love a multi velocity layer version!!

    When written around their strengths they sounded really good - still love the Cornetts - gently and satisfyingly out of tune, and all the more realistic for that.

    Hope they still have a copy or two!

    best

    (translation for our transatlantic cousins... you get a free bus pass if you manage to exceed 65 here in the UK - or 60 if you're female... I know, comedy is all about timing..)

    Some of the links appear to be broken such as the link to a PDF that tells you exactly whats on the DVD. But there's some contact info and an email address for more info.

    There are no demos available. I'm kind of curious to know how the strings sound?...

    Re: Baroque samples?

    I just picked up the Early Patches CD with over 30 Renaissance-type instruments on it. I've imported several into sfz and am playing with wind control (CC#2) and legato mode.

    There are a variety of winds (including recorders, shawms, etc), strings (like lutes - no viols) and percussion instruments.

    No afiliation - jnust a satisfied customer.
