Cinesamples has announced the release of Keyboard in Blue, an electro-mechanical piano for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Cinesamples Keyboard in Blue

Built from scratch, Keyboard In Blue’s construction improves on the much loved vintage instruments with better sustain and tone from of the high register, and a stronger, fuller tone in the bass.

Our intention was to present an electro-mechanical keyboard in a very organic and acoustic way. So instead of recording the direct output, a very popular method, we sent the direct out into a vintage tube guitar amp-cabinet.

This makes for a one-of-a-kind lively, acoustic tone filled with “character.” Use it with the character knob up for a crunchy sound or down for a smooth, sensual feeling.

Keyboard in Blue is available for $99 USD. It requires Kontakt 5.6.8 and above.
