Recording Process

It is a "Premier" Bandoneón with a sweet and expressive sound. One Neumann microphone was in charge of register for the left hand where all the bass notes are generated plus an additional ribbon microphone that handled the very low frequencies.

The right hand was captured by a modified SE A5600 II tube microphone and an AKG was set to record the natural high roof ambience of the recording space.

All the microphones were connected to vintage Telefunken preamplifiers that delivered the signal directly without any console or black box in the chain.

The recordings were all made at 24 bits 48Khz and each note was sampled with 3 velocity levels (piano, mezzo-forte, forte) across 9 different articulations
