Low effort kontakt piano

Hey guys. I figured I’d stick this up here for anyone who cares. I did a quick kontakt piano library just to test the waters a little bit.

This thing is a very low effort library. I sampled each tritone at 2 dynamic layers and added some filters in there to try to get them to sound a little more natural at all velocity layers. It’s not perfect, but it works better than I would have expected (note: expectations were very low).

There are no release samples. There are no pedal down samples. It’s about as bare-bones as a piano library could be. But it’s actually semi-functional, so you can feel free to download it and try it out.

It requires kontakt 6. I haven’t quite figured out how to make a library in kontakt 6 that can be opened in lesser versions. I haven’t spent more than 5 minutes trying to figure out if it’s even possible, so if anyone knows, let me know and I’ll do it.

Here’s an equally low effort sound clip.

Thank you!

No problem. I’ll definitely be working on a better version of this at some point. And I won’t be giving up my other piano sample libraries any time soon, but it seemed like it was at least good enough to be useful for some things.

I like this Boz. I mean it is not the peak of the piano plugins (yet) but I like the laid back sound. It has the feel of being close up the keys in a well padded room. That is nice as I can add space as needed with reverb.
