Precisionsound has released the Naeshult Table Piano, a virtual instrument sample library for Kontakt and EXS24.
These so-called table pianos, or piano harps, were made in Småland in the south of Sweden from about 1880 until 1929, when the manufacturing plant was burnt. During this period there was a use for self-playing instruments in schools, churches, and other groups. You could call them “sing-along machines of the 1800s”. Naturally, the demand declined in conjunction with the introduction of gramophone records.
Now, a hundred years later, Precisionsound have taken this limited but charming contraption and made it a flexible and playable instrument for software samplers. Their aim was to honour the instrument’s original characteristics – the clapping of the clubs, the sonorous sound of the strings coming out of the box.
Naeshult Table Piano features
- 459 stereo 24-bit WAV samples.
- Chromatic string samples.
- Percussive hammer samples.
- Mechanical crank samples.
- 4 programs for Kontakt 2.
- 1 scripted program for Kontakt 3+ and above.
- 4 programs for EXS24.
- 1.50 GB total uncompressed size.
The sample library costs $49 USD.

Root-sounds has launched Percussive Innuendo, a multi-format percussion library featuring over 2,000 samples mapped for EXS24, NI Kontakt, Reason NNXT and ProTools Structure.
You can never have too many percussion sounds. Percussive Innuendo is the perfect way to expand your existing percussion library with instruments or playing techniques not found in most libraries. For example, Tam-tam hits or rolls are great, but how about the dramatic effects you get from bowing and scratching for instant mystery or horror scores. For better blending, there are, of course, also normal soft and loud hits. We have also included some rare sounds, like a siren which is called for in very few orchestral scores (like Ionization by Edgar Varèse).
We were fortunate to be able to raid the percussion rooms of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. These sounds make up the bulk of the library, but you also get selected sounds from the collection of the University of Victoria, B.C., Mills College, California, as well as private collections.
Percussive Innuendo Gold edition (contains dry and wet versions) is available to purchase for $89 USD, a Standard edition (wet versions only) is $59 USD.

Precisionsound has released MBira bva Zimbabwe, a virtual mbira instrument library.
The MBira bva Zimbabwe is a twenty-two key MBira with added machachara—or “sizzler” to give a buzzing sound. The buzzing is traditionally important because it is believed to attract the ancestral spirits.
Precisionsound has deconstructed the sizzler from the original tone, so that the user can mix between the chromatic tone, the release noises, and the sizzler sound, all within the Kontakt interface. The user can also adjust the sizzler’s decay independently, to find a balance between the tone of the MBira keys and the buzz of the sizzler.
The MBira bva Zimbabwe library was sampled in two velocity layers, and recorded four round robins for each of the chromatic metal keys, sizzlers, and release samples. The instrument was close-miked in stereo, and the library contains 252 24-bit WAV samples. The key range of the instrument is from B1 to C5.
MBira bva Zimbabwe features
- 252 stereo 24-bit WAV samples.
- Chromatic metal key notes and release noises.
- Percussive “sizzler” samples from the MBira body.
- 1 program for NI Kontakt 3-5 with scripted interface.
- 3 programs for NI Kontakt 2.
- 3 programs for Logic EXS24.
The library is available to purchase for $20 USD. Kontakt programs require the full version of Kontakt (not compatible with the free Kontakt Player).
