The Cinesamples Baroque Bundle features Cinesamples' Baroque Continuo instruments – CineHarpsichord and the versatile 6-stringed Renaissance instrument – Viola Da Gamba. Both were recorded at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles.
See below for further details on the products in the bundle.
CineHarpsichord is a modern adaptation of a Franco-Flemish 1624 Iohannes Rückers Colmar harpsichord sampled by hand at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, California. With four stops and three distinct sonic characters, CineHarpsichord will be suitable for use in scoring and classical applications.
CineHarpsichord includes our new Perspective Mode feature which allows for changes through microphone positions. When you activate Perspective Mode, a slider appears that gives a smooth crossfade between the microphone perspectives. The slider is automatically mapped to the Mod Wheel, giving instant control of the relative depth of CineHarpsichord.
VIOLA DA GAMBA
The Viola da Gamba is an old orchestra string instrument with 6 nylon sides and a range from C2 to C5. Its sound is rough and coarse - a wonderful addition to classical strings.
Cinematique Instruments' goal was to digitally recreate the Viola Da Gamba and give it another modern expression was a success. Their Viola Da Gamba has become an amazingly independent instrument with its own unique character and a very organically rough sound. It is a great alternative to conventional orchestral string instruments.
Viola da Gamba contains roughly 1200 samples compressed down to around 600 MB.
