Sound Dust releases Ships Piano³
Sound Dust presents Ships Piano³, a 3-in-one piano library for Kontakt.
Ships Piano³ takes the original Sound Dust Ships Piano sample instrument and adds two more character pianos - a school grand piano and an altered upright piano. But this is not all, as you can not only use each of these three pianos separately but also mix them to combine different aspects of each piano to create impossible sounding piano hybrids. It also comes with the Satie-anator sequencer engine.
- School Grand - a binaurally recorded grand piano in an ancient stone walled school hall/chapel
- Ships Piano - 4 or 5 notes of velocity, recorded binaurally and re-tuned since the last version
- Room Upright - binaurally recorded with 3 layers of velocity, the twisted part of it is that its sound was reversed, fed through a high-end reverb and then reversed again
- Individual controls for volume, sample start, pan, stereo width, attack curve, ADSR, vibato and reverb send per piano
- 346 24-bit samples = 360mb with Native Instruments propriety compression
- 24 custom convolution reverbs per piano
- Satie-anator - 12 user programmable, key triggered sequencers with 12 tracks per sequence
- Scale and pitch quantisers with keyswitch control
- Master FX page - master EQ, tape and valve modelling plus transient designer
- Keyboard Velocity modelling page
- 37 instrument snapshots
- Handy build in instructions available through the GUI's RTFM page
The full version of Kontakt 5.5.1 (or above) is required, as the instrument will time out after only 10 minutes in the free Kontakt Player.
MSRP is £30, but until April 10th you can get it at 40% off using code HOGWARTS at checkout. More details at Sound Dust's website.
