Details

The Pianoforte library offers the unique sound of a historical pianoforte from Traugott Berndt in Breslau in 1848. Built by Johann Karl Traugott Berndt himself, who was appointed courtly instrument makes of the king of Prussia just one year before, the historical piano sports a graceful, charming yet smart and slinky sound hidden in a plain-Jane bourgeois Biedermeier style housing.

The Traugott Berndt pianoforte was given to the Mendelssohn-Haus in Leipzig as a gift by Professor Beurmann in November 2007.

It is now available for the first time for your sampler, presented in its original tuning at 433 Hz (presets at 440 Hz included).

To deliver the ultimate pianoforte experience in your studio, Best Service captured the sound with 32 velocity layers of each note for great dynamics, feel and pure sound. Far beyond the status quo of piano sampling - offering mostly just 4-5 velocity layers - this addresses a common problems often associated with digital sample pianos: The playing feel and sound of only a few layers is nothing like the real deal.

Furthermore, Best Service recorded the release sounds of each key in 8 variations to complete the experience of this rare instrument.

The sample library contains nearly 3300 single samples.

For the challenging task of recording the Traugott Berndt pianoforte, they employed active tube-driven Royer® R-122V ribbon microphones in conjunction with Crane Song™ Flamingo® preamps and Universal Audio™ 2192® digital converters to do the instrument justice.

For maximum sound quality, Best Service recorded in 192 khz/24 bits, downsampled to the resolution of your choice.

In addition to the samples, the Pianoforte library contains an essay in German from Professor Andreas E. Beurmann himself, explaining both the historical and musical background of the instrument.
