Realsamples French Harpsichord - Edition Buermann

Realsamples has released French Harpsichord – Edition Beurmann, a sample library featuring a double-manual instrument by renowned French builder Nicolas Pigalle.

The instrument – built in Dijon in 1771 – features an “enchanting sound with singing clarity and a substantial bass”, as Professor Beurmann explains. These qualities – along with its huge tone which also manages to bring out its delicate, sophisticated finesse and detail – make it is an excellent representation of the French style. “It is one of only two surviving harpsichords from Dijon, a city once so rich in musical tradition, the other also being by Pigalle.”, he continues.

Based on its two manuals and different registers, the Pigalle harpsichord offers lots of unqiue sounds, sampled with 5 different register combinations, including the upper 8′, lower 8′ (principal 8′), the 4′, both 8′ as well as the “tutti” combination of both 8′ registers and the 4′ recorded together.

French Harpsichord – Edition Beurmann features

  • More than 3400 single samples, recorded in 192 khz/24 bits resolution and downsampled.
  • 5 different register combinations sampled: Lower 8′, Upper 8′, 4′, Tutti and 2 x 8′.

Bolder Sounds Celtic Pipes, version 2 adds KSP scripting (+ free Thumb Piano released)

Bolder Sounds Celtic Pipes

Bolder Sounds has released version 2 of Celtic Pipes, a sample library featuring a comprehensive set of Bagpipes, Uilleann Pipes and Pub Pipes.

We’ve sampled every single musical note these instruments make, samples are also presented in both short and long loop lengths, mapped out in authentic note ranges with extensions on the highest sample. You can set a drone into motion within the use of the sustain pedal in the lower octaves, and then wail away on the melodic (chanter) part of the pipes mono phonically using pitch bend and continuous controllers without affecting the drones, all on the same midi channel, making for stunningly realistic pipe samples.

The Kontakt version of the Celtic Pipes has been updated to version 2 with newly added KSP scripting. It is a free upgrade for exisitng owners.

Celtic Pipes is available to purchase for Kontakt 3+, EXS24, and Gigastudio 2 for $29.96 USD until 24 July, 2010 in the Bolder Sounds Summer Sale (regular price $39.95 USD).

Bolder Sounds has also released a free Thumb Piano sample library for Kontakt 3+ and Apple EXS24.

This thumb piano (also called Kalimba, Sansa or Mbira) comes from a family of instruments originally from Africa. The range of this particular instrument is 2 octaves plus a major 3rd.

It was sampled with both plucks from the flesh of the thumb as well as the finger nail of the thumb for a brighter sound. Also each sample zone has 3 round robin samples assigned to it. So if you play the same key 3 times in a row, each time you will hear a different sample.

Bo Clausen has contributed some wonderful KSP Kontakt scripting as well which is documented in more detail later in this manual. Thank You Bo!
