    Windows Operating System: Native dll file for Windows® XP, Windows® Vista, Windows® 7, Windows® 8 / x86 (32 bit). For x64 (64 bit) test the demo plugin with your host internal bit bridge as in Cubase (VST Bridge), FL Studio (Bridged mode), Cakewalk Sonar, X2, X3 (BitBridge) or via external jBridge application for Ableton Live, PreSonus Studio One, etc. - Apple macOS: See options available for Macintosh users in Universal Binary and Sample Libraries for Mac (Audio Unit, VST for Mac, NI Kontakt NKI Files, Apple Logic EXS24 MkII Sample Library) Linux Operating System: with the following requirements (Special Thanks to Paul Davis).

    The harpsichord was widely used in Renaissance and Baroque music. During the late 18th century, it gradually disappeared from the musical scene with the rise of the piano. But in the 20th century, it made a resurgence, being used in historically informed performance of older music, in new (contemporary) compositions, and in popular culture.
