Best Service has announced the release of Eduardo Tarilonte's Accordions 2, which they bill as "The biggest Accordion Collection available".
Ever since the release of Accordions, this virtual instrument collection has been the first choice when it comes to ultra-realistic and above all, playable accordion libraries. Like its predecessor Accordions 2, has been produced by Eduardo Tarilonte and features not only double the content, but also a completely revised user interface as well as premade rhythms for the left hand.
Accordions 2 was recorded chromatically with 3 different dynamics and 3 round robins, using the fines studio technology available as well as a Neumann U47 microphone. Even subtle sounds, like key and button noises, were carefully captured to increase the realism of your performance.
Accordions 2 consists of 13 sampled Instruments:
- French Musette Accordion: A true French musette accordion if you are looking for the beautiful Parisian sound.
