RealSamples German Lautenwerck Sample Library

The RealSamples German Lautenwerck library brings a long-gone instrument into your sampler: The Lautenwerck - or Lute-Harpsichord - was one of Johann Sebastian Bach's favorite instruments.

RealSamples German Lautenwerck Features:
-8 different samples of each note  
-4 different release sounds of each note  
-ready to play HAlion/Kontakt2/EXS24 or GigaStudio3 presets  
-wave format (except GigaStudio version)  
-no mastering applied  
-recorded in 192 kHz/24 bits resolution and downsampled  
-DVD set  
-license-free application in your music

Despite 50 Lautenwerck builders in Germany, not a single instrument survived throughout the centuries. When the instruments had vanished, the awareness had gone as well: Only a couple of decades ago, musicologists found out that such an instrument had existed, solving the mystery of scores mentioning being written for Lautenwercke. Until then, one would have guessed that the composer meant a regular lute instrument by that notion. When the knowledge of it had resurfaced, Professor Beurmann had a reconstruction built by Ludwig Richter in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

Back in the days of harpsichords and spinets, the lute-harpsichord offered a much warmer, soft and intimate yet defined tone. While having been built to imitate a lute on a keyboard instrument in the first place, it brings a consistent attack to the table (due to not being touch-sensitive, just like a harpsichord) and also by allowing for full decay of all notes due to missing dampers. This allows for a vibrating, reverberant yet still transparent sound.

Just like harpsichords and spinets, the Lautenwerck is not touch-sensitive. However, even if the differences are minuscule, not any given note will sound exactly the same due to different resonances of body and strings. In order to pay tribute to the instruments´ variances, every note was captured with 8 different samples.  The release sounds of the keys are also of major importance for the overall experience. Therefore, RealSamples recorded 4 release samples of each note.

It is now available for the first time in the sampler within the German Lautenwerck library, presented in its original Valotti tuning at 412 Hz.  Presets at 440 Hz are available as well.  To start right away, presets are available for all common sample formats including HAlion, Kontakt2, EXS24 or GigaStudio3.  The sample library contains nearly 700 single samples.

For the critical task of capturing the instrument, RealSamples employed vintage Neumann TLM-170 microphones in conjunction with Crane Song Flamingo preamps and Universal Audio 2192 digital converters to do the instrument justice.  For maximum sound quality, they recorded in 192 khz/24 bits, downsampled to 44.1 kHz.  In addition to the samples, the 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).
