Samplicity has announced an audio plugin that offers full access to the acoustics of the famous Teldex studio, where for decades classical albums were recorded, and later also many highly acclaimed sample libraries.

Berlin Studio features the acoustic perspectives of 18 locations in the studio hall, captured with a Neumann Decca Tree, an A-B Pair and Surround microphones. The plugin gives you full control over the amount of early reflections, pre-delay and the tail per microphone set.

The signature sound of this studio – approximately the same size as Abbey Road One – has been captured by recording special signals emitted from the main orchestral stage positions and processing them into acoustical “fingerprints”, also known as impulse responses (IRs).

Meticulous post-pro editing has resulted in a very consistent and accurate set of IRs in True-Stereo format. If you are already familiar with previous IRs from Samplicity, you know they are rated among the very best, with low signal-to-noise ratios and excellent stereo imaging.

Berlin Studio is not only a great companion for working with Berlin sample libraries, but with its flexible handling of microphone perspectives, pre-delays, early reflections and reverb tails it also allows you to smoothly mix and match the positioning of virtual instruments from different vendors in a unique acoustic environment.

Scheduled for release in the end of October 2022, Berlin Studio for Windows and macOS (VST3, AU and AAX) is available to pre-order for 149 EUR instead of the regular price of 219 EUR. Prices ex. VAT where applicable.
