CineHarpsichord is a modern adaptation of a Franco-Flemish 1624 Iohannes Rückers Colmar harpsichord sampled by hand at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, California. With four stops and three distinct sonic characters, CineHarpsichord will be suitable for use in scoring and classical applications.
There are 3 patches of the harpsichord, each is based on its own mix:
- 01 CineHarpsichord
- 02 Baroque
- 03 Vintage
The main mix, 01 CineHarpsichord, includes FULL, CLOSE, ROOM, and SURROUND mixes similiar to our other libraries. Use the mix presets on the left for a variety of mix perspectives from Tim's Mix (the main mix), Dry and Close, Orch Left and Right, and a custom mix you can save. Because the harpsichord is such a percussive instrument, we delayed the close microphones to time-align with the room and surround microphones to prevent that typical flamming effect. That delay is applied within the FULL mix as well as the CLOSE mix.
The 02 Baroque mix is very specific in every aspect - perspective, image, and tonal shape. Therefore, one stereo fader is all that is needed. This is a more ambient mix with a touch of the close microphones without the time-aligned delay in order to provide a more silky, distant feel.
The 03 Vintage mix is also very specific in every aspect and thus, only one stereo fader is needed.
This mix favors a closer perspective with tape emulation and discrete out-board analog treatment including a Chandler EQ and tube harmonic distortion.
- Perspective Mode - allows for changes through microphone positions with one fader
- Disposition - Single, Double, Triple and Buff Stop
- Round Robin Borrowing - up to an additional 24 round robins per note
- Release Volume - control the release samples
