Sound Dust Tiny Binaural Harpsichord 3


The Tiny Binaural Harpsichord³ remains beautifully faithful to its rare origins, a spinet harpsichord made by influential instrument maker and musician, Arnold Dolmetsch (1849-1940). As always with a Sound Dust instrument, the TBH³ offers much more than impressively realised acoustics and editing - it offers a completely unique and incredibly versatile ‘must have’ instrument for the modern player, sound designer or composer.

Source samples were painstakingly recorded using OKM Binaural microphones, enabling the capture of omnidirectional stereo sound as experienced by the ear. The result is transparency and authenticity by the bucket load. The TBH³ delivers the resonant joy of a small period harpsichord, its ancient soundboard alive to the ring and thrum of quill plucked brass strings and the soft organic clunk of a worn wooden mechanism
