The Harpsichord, a keyboard sensation from the 16th to mid 18th century, once ruled European music. This versatile instrument was a star in both Renaissance and Baroque compositions, shining both as an accompanist and a soloist. We captured the piano and forte registers, glisses, slides, percussive impacts, plucks, scrapes and taps.
We sampled a prestigious 18th Century Italian Bizzi Harpsichord belonging to Claudia Ferrero, an acclaimed teacher and renaissance performer in Europe. The instrument has been carefully recorded in order to preserve the unique sound characteristics of both of the instrument and the room. The warm studio is based in the beautiful countryside of San Raffaele Cimena, Italy.
We’ve faithfully sampled every interesting sound we could get out of this instrument, with two stereo mic positions: Bridge and Soundboard. We captured the piano and forte registers, glisses, slides, percussive impacts, plucks, scrapes and taps. We’ve also included a wide selection of custom FX presets for Harpsichord and plenty of our signature sound-designed ambient content, crafted from the raw acoustic source to give you complete creative freedom.
