Vienna Symphonic Library IC Special Keyboards
The Vienna Symphonic Library Instrument Collection Special Keyboards is an 8 GB collection of exceptional, unfamiliar but also classical sounds that shouldn’t be missing on any sound designer’s or composer’s workstation.
Included in Special Keyboards is the typically Baroque instrument, the harpsichord, and the free-reed Hamonium
Finally, the prepared piano is included, a technique introduced in 1949 by John Cage, where objects like erasers, nails, wire, paper, etc., are inserted between a piano’s strings in certain places, causing them to produce additional tones, harmonics, or percussive sounds. The Bösendorfer grand piano was also treated with bare hands (e.g., glissandos over the strings) and with wood mallets in order to get a multitude of creative sounds and colors.
