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.


Although the TBH³ has evolved from its predecessor, the TBH², there are some significant differences to hand. A spanking new edit suite and effects bank each come with an expanded set of features and editing controls for superior detailed manipulation of sound. Tweaking almost any of the controls will result in the transformation of familiar harpsichord characteristics, delivering subtle new textures or completely altered states. Experimentation rewards with never before heard wonders. Altering volume envelope, attack shape and heaping on the sustain can result in something that sounds like a treated harpsichord played with an E-Bow. Drop an octave or two, add a little something from the Sound Dust wildcards of dirt and rotor and discover the fizzing twang of short metal wires stretched over a jar. The TBH³ encourages and rewards with each edit.
