Celesta Incogni

A gorgeous 5 octave Schiedmayer celesta recorded with a Zoom H2n portable recorder....

The story

In late September of last year, I came across a beautiful 5 octave Schiedmayer celesta tucked away in the corner of a storage room at a concert hall venue. I once again brandished my Zoom H2n portable recorder, stuck it on a footrest close to the membrane and proceeded to sample it. Unfortunately I never thought to take any photos of it when I was done, so I created some vector graphics to keep your eyes occupied.


The instrument requires the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1.

    Sounds gorgeous and I use it all the time. Really responsive and not much on the GUI but it doesn't need any tweaking

    This library is one of my all-time PianoBook favorites and most-used. It's intimate sounding, and the recording is very well done. It sits perfectly in mixes without having to do much more than adding a bit of reverb. If you don't already have this library downloaded, don't wait! It's truly one of the greats on the Piano book site!
