Named after the heavens themselves, the Celeste has always been the most ethereal of sounds. In orchestras and cinema it plays the parts where a sense of the magical is required. Built by Schiedmayer since 1890, they are magnificent pieces of engineering, related to a piano but with metal tines in place of the strings.


Since 2005 Soniccouture has redefined sampling as a medium for virtual instruments. The first developer to offer specialised single instruments in forensic detail, their work has a living, organic quality that means their instruments are used by musicians and composers across multiple genres and disciplines.
