Bandoneon Header

Reproduction of an historic Alfred Arnold Bandoneon

Bandoneon consists of a Philological reproduction of an historic Alfred Arnold Bandoneon made in Germany in the 50s! His typical sound is based on 2 reeds (Zinc) for each note. PSound Bandoneon has been sampled in 4 layers with 2 round robin for a total of 440 samples.

Bandoneon Screen

  • Recording - The Bandoneon was recorded 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 440 samples are in 96kHz/24bit resolution!
  • Analysis - By a careful analysis of the sound there is a great variation of the harmonic spectrum during the dynamic range of the reeds. This fact depends on the high quality of the hand made reeds of the instrument.
  • Loops - All the samples of the Bandoneon are perfectly looped with "DSPQuattro" audio editing software. In this way, you can play very long notes from your instruments without interruptions.
  • Preset 1 - The "Full Range" preset consists of both left and right hands notes mixed, it allows you to have a 56 notes (from F2 to C7).
  • Preset 2 - The "Left Hand" preset implements the left hand keys of the Bandoneon, with 32 notes (from G3 to C7).
  • Preset 3 - The "Right Hand" preset implements the right hand keys, with 36 notes (from F2 to C5).
  • Layers & Filters - 4 dynamic layers and 2 round-robins were used for each note of the instrument.

best quality!

sounds absolutely great and natural. What I would have wished was the possibilty to assign a free selectable midi controller (wheel, pedal or aftertouch) for continuos volume changes. At least I did not find any. At the moment there is a non-confugurable vibrato effect on the mod wheel.

Well-sampled and flexible bandoneon library. In deep comparisons, I think I prefer the articulateness of the Best Service Accordions Library, but in some ways this new one from PSound covers a slightly wider range of variant sounds for traditional Bandoneon playing (based on how the instrument is actually played in real life).
