Taleweaver Orchestra releases Ancient Wooden Piano & Bowed Psaltery

Taleweaver Orchestra has announced the release of Ancient Wooden Piano and Ancient Bowed Psaltery, two new sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Taleweaver Orchestra Wooden Piano

Ancient Wooden Piano

The „Ancient Wooden Piano“ is an Instrument Library for Native Instrument’s Kontakt Sampler. The samples sound like an old piano with ancient mechanics and wooden hammers.

If you need a piano that sounds like back in 1750-1800, the Ancient Wooden Piano is your choice. This instrument breathes and lives its own life so it’s slightly out of tune here and there creating its unique charm.

Ancient Wooden Piano features

  • 88 Keys fully recorded.
  • 44 kHz / 16 bit, wave format.
  • Soft & Normal patches referring to the softness of the hammer-impact on the string.
  • Panned and Mono Patches for both Soft & Normal.
  • Contains a very small amount of original room reverb so it’s not completely dry, but it can easily be wrapped into custom reverbs.
  • 3 Velocity-Layers, 5 Round-Robins each.
  • About 1300 samples.

Ancient Wooden Piano is available for the introductory price of 40 EUR (40% off regular).

Taleweaver Orchestra Bowed Psaltery

Ancient Bowed Psaltery

The „Ancient Bowed Psaltery“ is a Psaltery Instrument Library for Native Instrument’s Kontakt Sampler.

You need something that cuts through the mix? Something with a silvery sounding color? This is your choice.

Ancient Bowed Psaltery features

  • Bowed & Plucked patches.
  • 21 recorded original tones + a few pitched extra tones.
  • 44 kHz / 16 bit, wave format.
  • Bowed: 3 Velocity-Layers, 3 Round-Robins each + Release Samples.
  • Plucked: 3 Velocity-Layers, 5 Round-Robins each.
  • About 500 Samples.

The Bowed Psaltery library is available for the introductory price of 18 EUR (40% off regular).

Best Service Cinematique Instruments

Best Service has released Cinematique Instruments, a boxed version of Cinematique Instruments products powered by Engine, the sample player based on Yellow Tools Independence Pro.

The library contains wonderful string instruments such as an autoharp, a 36 string instrument with a series of chord bars, a kantele, a traditional plucked 5-string instrument of the zitherfamily native to Finland, a wooden celtic nylon harp or a bowed psaltery, an instrument of the zither family such as a kind of a wooden soundbox with unstopped strings over it.

Beyond a nice collection of percussion sounds Cinematique Instruments features also strange and rare keyboard instruments such as the low-price, garbage Super-Sound EK-470 e-piano, the charming organ with its electric fan which blows air across reeds or the organic and warm Zeitter & Winkelmann Piano.
But there are also special sound paks called Glass, Metallic Objects, Experimental Box and Downbeat Box. These sound paks are an amazing source of individual und inspriring textures, pads, mallets and percussions instruments.They beat and knocked doors and sideboards of a metallic kitchen with timpani mallets, brushes, sticks, fingers and fists, they tapped with fingers and timpani mallets against lids, rubbed around the glass rim and they assembled instruments from unique sounds such as stationannouncements, trains, paper crumpling, acoustic and electronic noise, station hum, underground railway noise, pneumatic doors, crown cap shaking, glitches, noise, hiss, hum and other weirdness.

Cinematique Instrument´s goal and ultimate ambition is to inspire everyone by using its highly playable and unique instruments providing a lot of opportunities for your music production.
