Available for download, Harpsichord Steven Devine from Spitfire Audio is a performance-oriented virtual instrument based on 1640 harpsichord samples. The virtual instrument draws on the sampled material as you play on your keyboard, recreating your playing in harpsichord sound. Performed by harpsichordist Steven Devine at the Air Studios Lyndhurst Hall in London, the samples cover the following register configurations: low 8', upper 8', lower & upper 8' together, upper 8' with 4' stop, low 8' with 4' stop, low buffer, and upper buffer. For sound customization there are sliders which control the dynamics, the overall volume, and the release, which is the time notes resonate before fading out. The Harpsichord Steven Devine tops off with a collection of synth-morphed "chordospheres" created using the organic samples as raw material.

Close, tree, ambient, and outrigger mic perspectives can be combined and blended for effectful shifts in focus and depth, and are also fully output assignable for surround and 5.1 use. The library is sampled at several dynamic levels and with eight slightly varying versions of each sound, known as round robins. Each time you hit a certain key a random round robin plays back, giving your virtual performance a lifelike feel. Recorded in situ within the Definitive Range, Harpsichord Steven Devine is designed to blend seamlessly with other Spitfire libraries, including Albion, the British Modular Library range, and part of the Signature range. The full sonic agreement between libraries enables you to combine orchestral sections and instruments, and have them sound as if they were being played together in the same room.

Note: Requires full version of KONTAKT 5

Overview Panel
The overview panel gives you a quick and easy way to access, view, and load the different articulations, mic mixes, and essential controller functions which you can then reassign to suit your workflow.
General Controls Panel
This is a deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. You can choose, for example, how many round robins you want and how you want them to behave, or how memory is organized alongside pitch options.
This device allows you to build up complex rhythmical patterns that react to your playing to create original effects.
Mic Positions
By customizing your mix of microphone positions, you are able to scale the library to the system you are currently working on. These are the four microphone positions:

  • Close
  • Tree
  • Ambient
  • Outrigger
