soundbank « Small Italian 17th » has been created by Eric Bricet and Jean
Yves Garet, in August 2007. Using this sound bank and the softwares Hauptwerk or
GrandOrgue, it is possible to play a virtual harpsichord copied after
a 17th century Italian instrument. It has one manual, 2 X 8'
stops, plus a lute stop .
The authors have decided to give it freely to anyone who will find it useful.
This soundbank has been
created for the softwares Hauptwerk
and the mapping files (extension : *.organ) are usable only with
these programs. However, the samples, in 'wav' format, are usable in
any sampling program (for ex : Kontakt, Halion, etc...). If you
create special mapping files for these programs (Kontakt, Vsampler,
Halion, GigaStudio, etc...), please transmit them to us, because it
will be suitable to distribute them freely to the community. But we
do not accept any modification of the samples themselves. In
particular, we refuse them to be reduced for an integration to a
General Midi bank, or a low quality soundbank.
It is forbidden to sell
this soundbank or to insert the samples in any commercial
