Realsamples has released two new sample libraries, "Realsamples Harpsichord" and "Vintage Bass Collection."
"Realsamples Harpsichord" features a masterbuilt harpsichord. The harpsichord, predecessor of the piano, still has its special place not only within classical music, but also in modern productions. While it is not a dynamic instrument at all, every hit sounds slightly different due to acoustic resonances of the body. Our harpsichord has been recorded with 8 velocity layers of each key, so most of the time, different samples will be played to avoid the static feel of single-layer sampling. The release sounds were sampled with 4 velocity layers.
Recorded in 24/96, we used Royer™ SF-12® and R-122® ribbon microphons and Mindprint™ DTC® preamps to achieve a natural and warm sound.
Presets for Halion®/Reason®/Kontakt®/VSampler3/EXS24® or GigaStudio® are available to start from scratch. The "Realsamples Harpsichord" is available on DVD or CD for $59.95.
The "Vintage Bass Collection" features a classic Fender™ Jazz Bass® which has been recorded with 32 velocity layers of each key to capture its dynamic range. Additionally, slap samples are included with 4 velocity layers of each key.
Recorded in 24/96, we used Universal Audio™ 610® preamps to achieve a warm and responsive sound.
Presets for Halion®/Reason®/Kontakt®/VSampler3/EXS24® or GigaStudio® are available to start from scratch.
The "Vintage Bass Collection" is available on DVD or CD for $59.95.
