MaxSynths has announced that its aPiano, previously available in Wusikstation and Sfz format, is now also available for Kontakt users.
aPiano is an acoustic piano emulation with an “open, big and vibrant sound”. The goal was to create a good piano sound suitable for any style, with a realistic feeling, warm but incisive at the same time and very limited in size (in contraposition with the multi gigabytes piano libraries available on the market today).
On the technical side what makes aPiano something unique is that each single sample in this piano library has been modeled in a dedicated software following mathematical calculations. Every single sound has been generated into a computer but with the challenge to make it sound as something real. And according to what people says the goal has been succesfully reached!
The aPiano for Kontakt (requires version 4.2 or above) costs 19.90 EUR. A multiformat version is 24.90 EUR.
