Fairly Confusing Waveforms releases Terrible Piano for Kontakt

Fairly Confusing Waveforms has introduced Terrible Piano, a free piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Fairly Confusing Waveforms Terrible Piano

This set has been recorded by accident. I happened to need to wait some hours alone in a room with this old upright piano, which has been quite obviously kept there purely for decorative reasons. I started to play around with it, recording notes to portable recorder. To make it somewhat interesting I picked rater unusual microphone position, I placed it under the piano. It barely fit the space between the floor and the instrument, and so the recording has a sort of claustrophobic, creepy vibe. If you have ever wondered, how would piano sound from a cockroach perspective, this is it.

It has been cut to samples and patched into an instrument in Kontakt. The piano was way out of tune, surely it hasn’t been serviced for decades, if ever. I made a rough attempt at fixing the tuning in Kontakt, it still sounds broken, just not as much as before. Kontakt patch offers both tuning versions, it also has an EQ, convolution reverb and mono/stereo switch. Here’s how it sounds, once again murdering a classic for demonstration purpose.

Terrible Piano is available to download at no charge. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2 or higher (Wav files also included).
