Sound Magic has released Hybrid Harpsichord for Windows 64-bit and Mac OS X.
Along with the existing 32-bit Windows version, Hybrid Harpsichord now provides:
- Native Windows 64-bit VSTi Version.
- Audiounit 32-bit/64-bit Version for OS X.
- VSTi 32-bit/64-bit Version for OS X.
The Hybrid Harpsichord is based on an instrument built by Kirckman in the 1770s. This rare-seen classic instrument has a single manual with 3 stops, including a lute stop. The Krickman Harpsichord is famous for its unique, high quality sound and although this particular instrument is over 240 years old, it's in surprisingly excellent condition.
Sound Magic says "To make this instrument available to all musicians, we did careful sampling and used our Hybrid Modeling Technology to bring it to life once again. During the recording session, we use several acclaimed Brauner VMA microphones, which nowadays are considered to be the best microphones available for this sort of job. We also used API preamps and dCS's Analog to Digital Converters to record it."
