3.5 GB harpsichord sample library
The evocative sound of an earlier century
This beautiful, historical library for HALion features one of the very few preserved German harpsichords — an amazing-sounding instrument crafted by Christian Vater. Built in Hannover in 1738, the instrument features a mellow low end and rich low mids, combined with a delicate treble range. Playable in modern and historical temperament, this harpsichord truly brings the sound of the 1700s into the 21st century.
