The dulcitone by the British company Dyson & sons is a hidden gem: Built around 1910, this unique tuning-fork piano sports a charming tone remeniscent of a “mellow” vibraphone, glockenspiel, marimba and a piano – yet a sound of its own.
It is the ancestor of the modern celesta, and Tschaikowsky wrote some parts of his Nutcracker suite for it. An original dulcitone is hard to play, offering a rough-running and tight dynamic response. We recorded every note with 8 samples, plus 4 varitions of each key release. The instrument was captured with two recordings (microphones close-up and slightly further away).
Presets are included for the Kontakt® (full version required) software sampler. The sample library contains nearly 1.500 single samples.
Originally sampled in 192 kHz/24 bit, it is downsampled to 44.1 kHz/24 bit. The instrument is released within our Edition Beurmann series of historical keyboards. It was part of the collection by musicologist Andreas Beurmann.
