The Best Service Pianoforte library offers 3300 digital samples that explore the unique sound of a pianoforte built by Johann Karl Traugott Berndt a court instrument maker for the King of Prussia. The piano used for this sample collection was built in Breslau in 1848, and sports a graceful and charming”yet smart and slinky sound”hidden in a plain Jane, Biedermeier-style housing.
This particular Traugott Berndt pianoforte was given to the Mendelssohn-Haus in Leipzig as a gift in November 2007. It is now available for your sampler, in its original tuning at 433Hz (presets at 440Hz included).
To deliver the ultimate pianoforte experience in your studio, the producers captured the Traugott Berndt piano's sound with 32 velocity layers of each note. You get dynamics, feel, and pure sound that go far beyond typical digital piano sampling. Also, the release sounds of each key were recorded in 8 variations to complete the auditory experience of this rare piano.
For the challenging task of recording the Traugott Berndt pianoforte, active tube-driven Royer R-122V ribbon microphones were used in conjunction with Crane Song Flamingo preamps and Universal Audio 2192 digital converters. For maximum sound quality, the piano was recorded in 192KHz/24-bits, downsampled to the resolution of your choice.
In addition to the samples, the Pianoforte digital instrument library contains an essay in German from Professor Andreas E. Beurmann, explaining both the historic and musical background of the Traugott Berndt piano.
