A celestette is slightly smaller than a normal celeste and the one I sampled was first given to my grandfather, Frank Picher, as a gift in 1955, following his miraculous recovery from a life-threatening accident. This virtual recreation features hundreds of samples, up to 4x round robin, 2 spaces, and multiple microphones, all put together to create 3 versions of the same instrument.


The "Dry" version is available by itself ($10), along with a free demo version on my website.



• Frank's Celestette (Dry): Close perspective, adjustable key mechanism samples.

• Frank's Celestette (Church): Recorded in a large church with adjustable Close/Far perspectives, adjustable note release samples.

• Frank's Celestette (Tape): Close perspective with a vintage dynamic microphone and recorded to a cassette tape, adjustable note release samples, adjustable tape hiss.

• Up to 4x round robin.

• Expanded range option.

• Works with Plogue's sforzando, a free SFZ player that functions as both a standalone player and a VST/AU/RTAS/AAX plugin, for use in a DAW or notation software.


Tech Specs:

• SFZ Format.

• 48 kHz/24-bit, WAV, Stereo/Mono.

• 746.7 MB on Disk.
