Rhythmic Robot has announced the release of Haunted Piano, a virtual toy piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Haunted Piano is created from multiple samples of two toy pianos which between them span a full three octave range. We sampled them at midnight, by candlelight, when the moon was full (and at 24-bit, natch). Using three velocity layers and two round robin sets, we created an eminently playable and responsive virtual toy piano, which can sound just as clunky and naive as the originals.
But then we went a bit further down the spookiness path, pushing the sound of the virtual instrument into sound-design territory. The samples can be reversed with the click of a button, to give eery builds and surprise tones, or to recall those “backwards masking” moments so favoured by demonic rock bands. They can also be force-transposed down by three octaves for groaning, bottom-of-the-sea, sepulchral noises and cavernous drones; or pitched up two octaves for tiny, sparkling fairy-bell sounds that glitter and gleam.
Haunted Piano features
- A toy piano with several unsettling differences.
- 3 octaves of chromatic multi samples, plus extras: 580 samples in total.
- Truly expressive: three velocity layers and twin round-robin sets for natural variation of the sound.
- 50 switchable randomised key-off samples.
- 75 effects samples of noises, thumps, bumps, crashes and squeaks.
- Reverse samples and groaning sub-transposition at the touch of a button.
The Haunted Piano library costs £9.95 GBP. Requires Kontakt version 4.2.3 or later full version.
