RealSamples Dulcitone Celesta Sample Library

The secret star of the Edition Beurmann is a hidden gem that may seem unimpressive at first glance: Built around 1910, it has been patina'ed over time and looks like a little version of a piano. This unique tuning-fork piano sports a vibrant, mellow and charming sound remeniscent of a vibraphone, glockenspiel, marimba and a piano - yet a sound of its own.

RealSamples Dulcitone Celesta Features:
-8 different samples of each note
-4 variations of each key release sound
-ready to play HAlion/Kontakt2/EXS24 presets
-wave format
-no mastering applied
-recorded in 192 khz/24 bits resolution and downsampled
-DVD or CD set
-license-free application in your music

At that time, the celesta was inspiring to those looking for a new sound - Pjotr Tschaikowsky wrote some parts of his Nutcracker for a celesta like the dulcitone. Being a rather quiet instrument, it seemed unappropriate for orchestral use, so its parts were often played by a glockenspiel instead - luckily, this is not a problem in a sampler.

Back then, no one had ever dreamt that a celesta would be as relevant today as ever - being the acoustic ancestor of the most popular vintage electric pianos, which share the same basic sound principles.  Providing a warm and full bass, it carries more weight than a toy piano and is great for any track demanding an unconsumed yet familiar sound.

An original Dulcitone celesta is very hard to play, offering a very rough-running and tight dynamic response. Capturing the dynamic shades of the instrument, RealSamples recorded every note with eight different samples.  The Dyson & Sons owes a huge part of its character and life to the unique release sounds of its keys - hence they recorded these sounds as well, providing 4 varitions of each key release sound to complete the Dulcitone experience. Breathe life into your sampler.

For the recording of this marvellous little fellow, RealSamples employed vintage Neumann TLM-170 microphones in conjunction with Crane Song preamps and Universal Audio 2192 converters. The library contains two versions of the instrument recorded with different stereo settings. For maximum sound quality, they recorded in 192 khz/24 bits, downsampled to the resolution of your choice.

The RealSamples Dulcitone Celesta delivers - and it does so for all common sample formats, including presets for HAlion, Kontakt2, and EXS24.  The sample library contains nearly 1500 single samples.  Furthermore, the Dulcitone Celesta sample library contains an essay in German from Professor Andreas E. Beurmann himself, explaining both the historical and musical background of the instrument.

A high performance system is required, especially a sound card allowing for the particular sample rate/bit depth, and at least 512 MB RAM (1 GB or more is best).
