The Jacob Method refers to a method of playing the Linnstrument with Pianoteq that Jacob Barton discovered when we were together in Winston-Salem NC for the microfest. Essentially the method uses an extreme arpeggio setting on the Linnstrument with its pressure sensitive pads to create a piano voice that can swell. Take a listen…. 360 BPM 32nd note triplets.

Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune in Werckmeister III tuning is a rendering using Kontakt 5 orchestral instruments using Werckmeister III temperament tuning. The midi transcription was done by David Mitchell in 1994. While this midi does have its flaws I think it works well overall.
