SoundEngine.com has announced the availability of a collection of Upright Pianos for Kurzweil K2x00 Series Samplers: KCD-003 Upright Pianos.
SoundEngine’s Upright Piano Collection consists of a Hanson Upright — a British upright/overstrung piano with old style action, built in 1908 — and a Ladbrooke Upright, a circa 1955 model with modern action, parallel strung. Velocity Switch, Stereo, and Mono versions are available. Additionally, SoundEngine.com has performed V.A.S.T. and KDFX programming to support these keymaps.
“We visited upright pianos and captured their homey sound. There’s a lot of character, a lot of depth, charateristic tuning issues, but heaps of playability in this unique sample library. Captured on a 20-bit digital recording system using vintage Cole Ribbon microphone and clip-on Sony mics, the unique approach to recording these pianos captured the years of history residing within the black and whites,” says, Scott C. Peer of SoundEngine.com.
Kurzweil Upright Pianos is available now at SoundEngine.com and has an MSRP of $59.99. A downloadable version will be made available soon.
