Mildon Studios has announced the release of Performer EPiano, an electronic piano sample library.

Performer EPiano is a meticulously crafted virtual instrument that has a perfect blend of brilliance and body, much sought-after in today’s music styles. Performer was synthesized in a way that emulates the dynamics of an acoustic piano, giving it a more natural flow, and making it a lot of fun to play.

Performer EPiano comes as an SFZ instrument, so you can play it using any free SFZ player. We recommend sfz player or Alchemy player.
