One Of The Oldest Pianos Sampled


Part of their ongoing Edition Beurmann, German sample manufacturer realsamples has sampled another piano of the renowned collection of Professor Andreas E. Beurmann, offering 32 velocity layers.
The Early Pianoforte library offers the unique sound of a historical pianoforte by Johann Andreas Stein built in Augsburg in 1793. Clearly showing influences of harpsichords of that time, the instrument sports an uncommon piano sound: Svelte, present and with courtly elegance. Sporting a sound and feel far from any other pianoforte, the Stein instruments were a personal favorite of Mozart.
realsamples say that, for great dynamics and feel, they captured 32 velocity layers of each note. Far beyond the status quo of piano sampling - offering mostly just 4-5 velocity layers - this addresses a common problem often associated with digital sample pianos: The playing feel and sound of only a few layers is nothing like the real deal. Furthermore, 8 varitions of each key release sound were recorded to complete the experience of this instrument. The sample library contains more than 2500 single samples.
realsamples tell us that, for the challenging task of recording the historical pianoforte, vintage Neumann™ TLM-170® microphones were used in conjunction with Crane Song™ Flamingo® preamps and Universal Audio™ 2192® digital converters. For maximum sound quality, realsamples recorded in 192 khz/24 bits, resolutions of your choice are available as well.
The virtual Stein Pianoforte can be used with samplers like HAlion®, Kontakt®, EXS24®, Independence®, MachFive®, VSampler3® and GigaStudio®, amongst others. The sample library is available in 44.1/48 khz, 96 khz and 192 khz resolution, Pricing and Availability:
Starting at $159.95 USD, the instruments can be purchased directly on the realsamples website on DVD. More information:
