|Title:||bitKlavier Grand Sample Library—Harp Omni Mic Image|
|Abstract:||The bitKlavier Grand consists of sample collections of a new Steinway D grand piano from nine different stereo mic images, with: 16 velocity layers, at every minor 3rd (starting at A0); Hammer release samples; Release resonance samples; Pedal samples. Release packages at 96k/24bit, 88.2k/24bit, 48k/24bit, 44.1k/16bit are available for various applications.|
|Description:||Harp Omnis: DPA 4060—omni-directionals
These microphones are placed directly on the metal harp of the piano and positioned to capture a “high strings / low strings” perspective of the piano (along the length of the harp). Such close positioning allows an engineer to ignore the natural stereo image a listener would experience, and therefore can be more freely positioned in a stereo image by the use of panning. Since they are a bit further from the hammers, they predominantly capture the sound of the vibrating strings and soundboard.
File Naming Convention: C4 = middle C
. Main note names: [note name][octave]v[velocity].wav
-- e.g., “D#5v13.wav”
. Release resonance notes: harm[note name][octave]v[velocity].wav
-- e.g., “harmC2v2.wav”
. Hammer samples:
rel[1-88].wav (one per key)
-- e.g., “rel23.wav”
. Pedal samples:
-- e.g., “pedalU2.wav” => pedal release (U = up), velocity = 2 (quicker release than velocity = 1)
