Is anybody working on sample libraries of authentic baroque instruments - oboe d\'amore, viola da gamba, baroque strings, that sort of thing? I guess the audience for a library like that would be small - maybe just me! - but I just can\'t stand the idea of doing Bach or Purcell or Handel etc. with libraries like AO. Yuuk!
I know there are a few ancient instrument sounds out there - I have Early Patches, and I really like it - but it\'s meant for renaissance and medieval, not baroque.
Post Audio Media has released a Harpsichord CD for Gigasampler. It contains one Flemish and one French harpsichord that are covered in all their voicings including true \"release\" samples and even special voicings such as the \"Lute\" settings.
Post Audio Media is also working on a new CD in this serie that will contain spinets.
I would also be inrerested in some baroque instruments you\'ve mentioned.
But not only baroque. Has anyone seen (heard) a sample of a cornet. Berlioz used it f.i. in Symphonie Fantastique. I tried to immitate it with equed trumpet but result was not satisfying. Well, cornet is not a trumpet...
If you know about one, please let me know.
