Precisionsound has released Nordic Upright Piano for HALion & Kontakt.
The goal behind the Nordic Upright Piano is to capture the ring and dynamics of a good essential Swedish piano.
The instrument was sampled in mono and the position of the close positioned microphone was changed per each octave. Then the piano was “re-built” in the digital domain by giving each string its own position in the stereo field. The result is a dry piano that gives you the flexibility to place it in any sonic environment you like.
The recording was supervised by an authorized concert piano technician to secure that it was properly tuned.
Nordic Upright Piano is sampled in 5 velocity layers at most, with 5 layers for note and 5 for release samples and seamlessly looped to save disc space in typical Precisionsound style.
The complete CD-ROM and/or SampleSet contain 713 individual 24 bit Mono WAV samples. 4 programs each for HALion 1.*, HALion 2 and 2 programs for NI Kontakt 1.5
