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. The software instrument offers 1298 waveforms that have been recorded with a Neumann TLM103 large diaphragm microphone and Apogee Symphony audio interface. The samples were then edited and looped to generate a total of 1.8 GB worth of samples. All of the registers and all of the accordion's keys were recorded with 4 velocity layers and 2 round robins at 24-bit 96 kHz audio resolution.

A filter was used to simulate the harmonic variations of the sound. key-on and key-off noises were recorded separately for a more realistic sound. A special filter can be modulated by an expression pedal to provide a crescendo and realistic bellow sound. A tremolo effect can be modulated using a controller's modulation wheel.

The samples were looped using DSPQuattro audio editing software. The seven registers of the accordion were implemented: Bassoon (16"), Bandoneon (16"+8"), Organ (16"+4"), Master (16"+8"+4"), Oboe (8"+4") and Piccolo (4"). A variety of presets are provided to manage a range of MIDI configurations.

The control panel includes: single voice volume (16", 8", and 4"), key noises volume (key-on and key-off), Reverb on/off, time, and wet/dry controls. The accordion register can be selected in the control panel or by key-switches.

The instrument comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 2 (v2.5.6 or later) which works on Mac OS X (10.6 or later) as well as PC (windows XP SP2 or later) as a standalone instrument or as a plug-in (VST, AU, AAX, RTAS, MAS) in both 32 and 64 bit formats. It also works with MOTU's Machfive (v3.2.1 or later). The instrument is protected by the PACE Protection system. It can be registered to your computer or to an iLok key (version 1 or version 2).
