Vintage Accordion is a software virtual musical instrument created by Paolo Principi of PSOUND. The instrument is based on a vintage Titano accordion made in Castelfidardo, Italy from the 1960s. To realized it Paolo made an in depth study about its special sound. Paolo loves that sound and all its expressive variations! To capture its soul he worked with amazing technical tools (from microphones to sound card, from editing software to developement system)! He recorded, edited and looped almost 1300 waveforms for a total of 2GB of memory storage. All samples are perfectly looped. He recorded all the registers of his accordion, all the keys for 4 velocity layers and 2 round robin. He adopted a filter to simulate the harmonic variation of sounds during its dynamic range. He separately recorded the key-on and key-off noises for a more realistic sound! Now he says: "Yes! This is its real sound!".

 

Enjoy with it! (Paolo Principi)

 

A RESEARCH AND AN IN DEPTH STUDY OF THE ACCORDION SOUND TO OBTAIN A MORE REALISTIC VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT IN SIX PHASES. MADE BY A MUSICIAN FOR MUSICIANS.

"Vintage Accordion" is based on an old Titano Accordion made in Castelfidardo (Italy) by Victoria in the 60s. This instrument is one of the most acclaimed vintage accordions on the market. Its sound, with the "tube chamber" solution, allows the musicians to explore all the expressive possibilities that an accordion can produce!

LAYERS & FILTERS

Composing the sound

There's 4 dynamic layers and 2 round-robins for each note of the instrument. A special filter modulated by expression pedal allows a great "crescendo" effect to obtain a real bellow controlled sound. A Tremolo effect is modulate by "modulation wheel"

Recorded his vintage accordion with a Neumann TLM103 large diaphragm microphone thru an amazing Apogee Symphony I/O converter with its own Mic Preamp card for the best audio resolution and musical details. All the 1289 samples are in 96kHz/24bit resolution!
