The Realsamples Orphica Piano Multi-format Sample Library - Offers a slinky, charming and lively piano tone unlike any regular piano sound thanks to its small size featuring three octaves, it has a different main focus: Twinkle-toed, yet present with chocolate-like mids and with the typical piano-like grace, it can be great for any piano track asking for a fresh, unconsumed sound.
In order to deliver the ultimate Orphica experience in your studio, we captured the sound with 16 velocity layers of each note to compliment the surprisingly expressive dynamic range. Furthermore, we recorded release sounds of each key in 8 variations to complete the experience of this marvellous little instrument.
To start right away, presets are available for all common sample formats including HAlion®, Kontakt2® and higher, EXS24® and GigaStudio3®.
For the critical task of recording the harpsichord, we employed custom-made Wagner™ U47w® tube microphones in conjunction with Crane Song™ Flamingo® preamps and Universal Audio™ 2192® digital converters to do the instrument justice. For maximum sound quality, we recorded in 192 khz/24 bits resolution, downsampled to 44.1 khz/24 bits.
In addition to the samples, the library contains an essay in German from Professor Andreas E. Beurmann himself, explaining both the historical and musical background of the instrument.
