ABOUT THE JACOBI COLLECTION
For some time now, interest in these hard-to-find mechanical musical instruments has been growing again. This is mainly due to private collectors who make their holdings available to the public. One of these enthusiasts was the businessman Rolf Jacobi, who together with his wife Heidi Jacobi collected this unique collection over many decades. Beginning with a little polyphony that his mother gave him, he fell in love with these sound marvels.
We are very pleased that we can now offer this unique collection to a wider public, so that these beauties do not fall into oblivion. We thank Heidi Jacobi for the permission to record these devices. Especially Rainer Scharl, who helped us with the production from the beginning. And of course to the rest of the Jacobi team.
HOW YOU CAN USE IT
This impressive collection can be used in many ways. Often you need background music in a scene or as main music in a playful media production. Not to mention holiday greetings. As a sound effect in feature films, authentic sound cannot be used often enough to adapt the scenery to the time. These machines were mainly used in the 17th and 18th century. For this reason it can be that sometimes an instrument starts to grind down a little. We have deliberately refrained from elaborate sound processing in order not to destroy this very charm. But that doesn't mean that we kept the footage in its raw state. Every track was carefully inspected, the volume was adjusted and unavoidable sound improvement with equalizers and compressors were made in a gentle way.
All these songs are royalty free and can be used in all your projects without GEMA registration or reporting to other collecting society, like all our other sound effects. Detailed information about the license terms can be found in the End User License Agreement.
