The Early Pianoforte library offers the unique sound of a historical pianoforte by Johann Andreas Stein built in Augsburg in 1793. Clearly showing influences of harpsichords of that time, the instrument offers an uncommon piano sound: Svelte, present and with courtly elegance. The Stein instruments were a personal favourite of Mozart.

Remaining in great condition in the collection of Andreas Beurmann, it is now available for the first time for your sampler, presented in its original tuning at 417 Hz (presets in 440 Hz are included as well).

To deliver the ultimate pianoforte experience, we captured the sound with 32 velocity layers of each note. This addresses a common problems often associated with digital sample pianos which feature only a few layers.

Furthermore, we recorded the key release sounds of each key in 8 varitions to complete the experience of this rare instrument.

Presets are included for HAlion®, Kontakt® (full version required) and EXS24® software samplers. In addition, the library contains an essay in German from Dr. Andreas Beurmann, explaining the background of the instrument.

The sample library contains more than 2.500 single samples.

For the recording process, we employed vintage Neumann™ TLM170® microphones in conjunction with Crane Song™ Flamingo® preamps and Universal Audio™ 2192® digital converters. The instrument was recorded in 192 kHz/24 bits, downsampled to your resolution of choice.
