Acousticsamples has released OldBlackGrand, a virtual piano instrument for Kontakt.
Everybody keeps on sampling the best and cleanest piano ever… here is a completely different approach. We sampled an old Pleyel Grand Piano (F-71240 model from 1928) with vintage gear like a studer console and tube microphones, it has the rich and warm sound of the old jazz/blues or even classical music recordings.
- 12,89GB sample bank, no loops Recorded at 24/88,2Khz downsampled to 24/44.1khz.
- 9 velocity layers for the sustain.
- 9 velocity layers for the release.
- Two microphone positions: close (inside) and rim (singer position) that you can enable/diable and mix.
