  • Includes 12 predefined sounds and a friendly user interface. Creating new sounds is as simple as combining these presets in different ways and selecting the harpsichord type as desired.
  • Unlike a real harpsichord, RetroMagix allow dynamic changes and shapes varying its parameters, offering you a wide variety of sounds to create professional music from Classical to Neoclassical styles.
  • Early music enthusiasts can enjoy an authentic experience with all of the advantages of RetroMagix to recreate the classical harpsichord sounds. Also if you are looking for any instrument of harpsichord family like Virginal, Muselaar Virginal, Spinet or Clavicytherium sounds, RetroMagix can offer you an approach to those instruments that were popular between the 15th and 17th centuries.
  • Multiple-Mode Filter: The values are automatically computed when you select any of the filter types. Filter switch includes: LP (Low pass), BP (Band pass), HP (High pass), notch, peak, low pass and high pass shelving filter with adjustable cutoff and bandwidth.
  • Integrated, variable room simulation. Reverb effect can control the "room ambience".

    Sounds like a pair of monophonic sample playback synths? Low notes sound OK, higher notes sound very strange with a mushy envelope going on.

    I love the h-chord but this one sounds (or perhaps is just being fed some poorly programmed general MIDI) plastic.

    It does sound like Youtube may have worked it;s audio magic on this one. But I agree, not big on the subtleties. Where's the key off sound? The dainty pluck of the string etc.
