Media composer Jon Meyer has released a free Kontakt instrument library featuring the sounds of a Kawai BS-30 upright piano.
I sampled my Kawai Piano with the felts engaged for that dark, moody, quiet vibe. Neumann KM84’s provide the focus, U47 clones bring the hype and width with Coles 4038 Ribbons on the back for a nice round, clear low end.
The sample library is available as a free download to newsletter subscribers.
Jon is also offering free sample libraries of a vintage Ludwig kit covered in blankets and sampled with brushes, an original instrument that blends a Native American flute with a violin, and a set of sampled Schulmerich Handbells.
