Berlin Harpsichords

French & Italian

Berlin Harpsichords is the latest sample collection in the renowned Berlin Series by Orchestral Tools. Following the addition of new strings, woodwind, brass and percussion samples to the Berlin orchestral series, this collection is now introducing the rich, baroque sounds of two traditional harpsichords – French and Italian – opening up new avenues of possibility for users who are eager to broaden their palette of sounds.

The harpsichord samples have been recorded in different registers, ensuring that users have the flexibility they need to create the sound they are looking for. As with the Berlin series and other Orchestral Tools collections, the instruments were recorded at the Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin, a distinctively balanced 450 m² hall with sublime acoustics and the finest microphones from the last five decades.
