Soundbank week day #6 : The biggest free classical instruments sounbank ever !

The biggest free classical instruments soundbank ever !

The university of Iowa, thanks to Lawrence Fritts, created in 1997 an instrument samples database that didn't stop growing since.

All the samples are pro recorded, in aiff format, 16 bit 44.1 khz.

Tons of samples, several GBs, believe me, you won't find this anywhere on the web, even if you pay for it ;)

Here are the technical specs of the recording :

The instruments were recorded in the Anechoic Chamber in the Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Center at The University of Iowa on the following equipment:

Neumann KM 84 Cardioid Condensor Microphone
• Mackie 1402-VLZ Mixer
• Panasonic SV-3800 DAT Recorder

The recordings were digitally transferred to Macintosh Power PC 8500 though a Digidesign Audiomedia III interface (1997-1999) or to a Macintosh G4 through a Digidesign Digi-001 digital interface (2000-present).

The recordings were edited into soundfiles in Digidesign Sound Designer II (1997-1999) or Bias Peak (2000-present) consisting chromatic scales at three non-normalized dynamic levels, pp, mf, ff.

Each note is approximately 2 seconds long and is immediately preceded and followed by ambient silence.

Some instruments are recorded with and without vibrato. String instrument recordings include arco (bowed) and pizzicato (plucked). The only non-anechoic instrument is the piano, which was recorded in a small faculty teaching
