Vintage Accordion is a virtual instrument based on a vintage Italian accordion made in Castelfidardo in the 60s.
To realize it I made a deep study about its special sound. I love that sound and all its expressive variations. To capture its soul I worked with amazing technical tools (from microphones to sound card, from editing software to development system). I recorded in 95kHz/24-bit resolution, edited and looped almost 1300 waveforms for a total of 2GB of memory storage. All samples are perfectly looped. I recorded all the registers of my accordion, all the keys for 4 velocity layers and 2 round robin. I adopted a filter to simulate the harmonic variation of sounds during its dynamic range. I separately recorded the key-on and key-off noises for a more realistic sound.
