Sampled by Schimmel Braunschweig as 24bit, this is the most extensive library of this instrument in the world. 17 layers, sounds of pressing a pedal, touching keys with fingers, moving hands, other mechanical and extraneous sounds, it would seem, were also sampled, which raised this library to an incredible level of realism. The Braunschweig Upright Piano has a distinctive sound character that’s far more intimate than a grand piano, making it desirable for certain situations where you don’t want the polished and precise sound of a nine-foot grand in a concert hall.
An original Schimmel Braunschweig upright piano was painstakingly recorded to create this beautiful instrument. As with all Imperfect Samples instruments, the emphasis has been placed on achieving a hyper-real and convincing sampled instrument, with performance sounds.
Sampled in multiple velocity layers, with release samples, and true staccato, the Schimmel Braunschweig Upright Piano was recorded at 24 bits, totalling over 5GB of data (Pro version contains 15GB). This sampled instrument’s raw and distinctive sound is unlike any other piano sample library currently available.
Please note that current formats available are VST, AU, EXS24 and Kontakt *. This instrument is presented in 2 incarnations; the Braunschweig Upright, and the more versatile upgraded Braunschweig Upright (Pro).
