SampleTekk releases Steiny D, Steiny D Close & Rain Piano sfzED

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 03, 2014 - comment 0 comments

SampleTekk has announced sfzED versions of its Steiny D, Steiny D Close and Rain Piano instrument libraries.

SampleTekk sfzED

The magnificent Steinway D, recorded in a concerthall for the true concert grand experience. This microphone perspective is normally the preferred configuration for recording a live classical piano performance, such as a recital. The microphones are placed at a sufficient distance let the tone fully engage the room. You might even say that the room is really the featured player here, as much as the piano.

The “Close” perspective was recorded with the microphones placed very close to the strings. Normally, this isn’t the way you would record a classical piece, but you will find that this perspective gives you a great presence and brilliance. Try this version for an in-your-face pop or jazz sound, or for bold and aggressive features.

The Rain Piano was recorded after some extensive Tom Waits listening. Specially the ”Mule Variation” album, (great stuff!). I fell in love with the piano sound on that record and decided to make something in that line.

The sfzED sample libraries are available for purchase at a 50% introductory discount for a limited time only.

SampleTekk launches Upright Piano sale – 60% off

SampleTekk has announced a sale on its Upright Piano instrument libraries, offering 60% discount on selected products for a limited time.

SampleTekk Upright Piano Special

Upright piano libraries

  • Rain Piano $19.60 – A serious Upright piano with character. Sometimes a Grand Piano is simply too much or lacks personality. Rain Piano is professionally setup to add character while staying in tune with your other instruments. A true 8 velocity X2 (pedal Up / pedal Down) The extra velocities provide smooth response from softest to loudest timbres. Recorded at Studio Kuling, Sweden using only the finest gear and mastered in 24 bit stereo. Kontakt, HALion and EXS24 format available.
  • Rain Piano MkII $31.60 – Since the samplers has been become more advanced and the Rain Piano still are one of our most popular pianos, we decided to bring it up to date and add some functions in the line of the original ideas. So, we got the original master recordings out, (and they where in 24 bits), made some refinements to them and built the instrument from scratch. We also added hammerback and pedalnoise samples and release samples.Then we added our True Resonance feature and used Kontakts scripting facilities to make Real Time/True Pedaling, Sympathetic Resonance and some other nifty features, and, Voila: The Rain Piano MkII! (Full Kontakt required).
  • Vertikal $31.60 – There are so many sampled pianos on the market today and you as a musician have the benefit to be able to choose from the multitude of different brands and sounds. Most, or nearly all, of the sampled pianos are great, wonderful grand pianos like Steinway’s, Bosendorfer and other truly amazing instruments. But, sometimes you need something different. Let’s face it, you wouldn’t choose Pavarotti to sing rock and roll, would you? Also, you probably would let Robert Plant sing “La Boheme”… Mind you, it probably would sound great in a way, but it’s probably not what you’re after! Now, most of the sampled pianos on the market today are “Pavarotti’s”, but if you want a “Plant”-piano you don’t have that many chooses, until now! (EXS24, Kontakt & HALion Format).
  • Vertikal MkII $39.60 – In the MkII both microphone perspectives are included so you can use them one by one, of mix to taste! We also added hammerback and pedalnoise samples. Then we added our True Resonance feature and used Kontakts scripting facilities to make Real Time/True Pedaling, Sympathetic Resonance and some other nifty features, and, Voila: Vertikal MkII. (Full Kontakt required).

The sale ends November 2nd, 2014.

SampleTekk releases The Emperor MkII for Kontakt

SampleTekk has announced the release of the Emperor MkII, a reproduction of a unique Bösendorfer 290 SE Imperial Grand Piano.

SampleTekk Emperor MkII

The owner achieved to install a very high-tech mechanism in the piano designed by Wayne Stahnke that operates the piano keys and pedals with more than 1.000 steps accuracy and is controlled by a computer system. This allowed me to capture each velocity layer of this perfect instrument with unequalled precision.

By utilizing this new technology to optimize the performance of the action, we have created a product which leaves the pianist in total control of dynamic response, timbre and touch.
This library provides the greatest possible control during the softest pianissimo, through crescendos to the reserves of power needed for the loudest fortissimo.

Emperor MkII features

  • 11 velocity levels.
  • TimeVel Release Technology.
  • Sympathetic Resonance.
  • Real Pedalling.
  • Controllable volume for key/pedal noise.
  • Controllable volume for Sympathetic Resonance and Resonance.
  • Adjustable Instrument Body Resonance.
  • Kontakt 4 (full version, it will open in the free player, but in a time limited/session mode).

The library is available for the introductory price of $49 USD until August 15th, 2014 (regular $79 USD).
