Soundiron has announced that its Tuned Micro and Granny Piano sample libraries are now available in Reason ReFill format.
We’re happy to finally announce the arrival of our first two ReFill Packs for Reason!
We’ve worked with Propellerhead to carefully optimize and redesign our classic Old Busted Granny Piano and Tuned Micro libraries specifically for the Reason 6 platform, with Combinator and NN-XT presets that truly capture the playability and advanced control functionality that people have come to love with these popular instruments.
While ReFills and Kontakt presets have very different capabilities and strengths overall, you’ll find many of the same familiar UI features, a variety of matching presets, stylized artwork and the same great sound. And don’t worry, we’ll be adding new offerings to our Reason catalog as time goes on to expand the selection for our Reason users. And existing customers of the Kontakt versions of these libraries are eligible to receive low cost cross-grades to the Reason version.
The Tuned Micro and Granny Piano ReFills are available to purchase for $29 USD and $49 USD respectively.

Soundiron has announced version 2.0 of Old Busted Granny Piano, an upright piano sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
We’re excited to announce the release of a major update for one of our oldest releases, Old Busted Granny Piano! This complete overhaul features lots of mapping tweaks, a new user interface and integration of all of our latest technology.
For the brand new 2.0 version of our Granny Piano, we’ve tweaked the mapping and layering to make it feel more responsive and natural, combined the “Tuned” and “Untuned” versions into a single preset with an easy Tuning mode switch and implemented our proprietary voice management technology to minimize noise-ﬂoor build-up while maintaining performance. We’ve also incorporated a full range of user controls to allow total sonic shaping, and ﬁne control over every detail of the sound.
You now have the power to shape note Attack and sample Offset to create gentle, ghostly pad-like sounds from even the harshest impacts. The Release control allows you to tighten the sound. Our powerful Uberpeggiator allows complex, adaptive arpeggiations and you’ll ﬁnd tempo-syncing resonant ﬁlter and volume LFOs build into nearly every preset. We’ve also included a parametric EQ and convolution reverb with over 50 room and FX impulses to choose from instantly. And ﬁnally, the brand new Geriatrocities atmospheric sustains preset includes 12 custom ambiencies that can be blended and shaped freely, including the ability to play with polyphonic legato and custom-blend two unique layers at a time.
The sample library is available to purchase for $39 USD through November 20th, 2012 (MSRP $49 USD). The update is free for current owners of the library.
Cinematique Instruments has introduced the Grand 3P, a sample library for Kontakt based on the famous Steinway A grand piano, a wonderful piano with a powerful and a warm sound.
Cinematique Instruments’ Steinway A sound library for NI Kontakt.
The Grand 3P is a very versatile instrument with a lot of fantastic opportunities. You´ll find it perfectly suitable for film scores, classical music and contemporary pop as well as virtually any other music style that requires a great sounding piano.
In order to build a versatile and complex instrument there are many editing options. Besides regular tools such as reverb (with 5 different types), delay, speaker simulation and a four-band EQ there are some outstanding features available. This includes the Soft Vel, the Tone, the Bottom and the key option. The key option gives you the ability to choose between the different mic positions and microphones that were used in the original recording session.
Inside the Grand (Gefell MV691), outside the Grand (pair of Neumann KM149) and in the room (pair of Neumann KM184) – all notes recorded with 9 velocity layer. This will let you decide about the amount of close miking and natural ambiance you want to use in your production.
The Grand 3P comes with 20 different presets divided in the 3 categories ‘Cinematique’, ‘Natural’ and ‘Effect’ which gives you the ability to quickly dial your favourite sounds for your own music.
