Mister Sandman (aka Pierre Laplace of folk duo The Sandman’s Orchestra) has released Antique Toy Piano, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

This vintage toy piano spans 3 octaves and has a distinctive sound, different from most modern sampled toy pianos.

The Kontakt sample library is a natural sounding re-creation of this little beauty, keeping its quirks and flaws – the odd harmonics and resonance, the occasional slightly out–of-tune note. It’s nevertheless a playable instrument that will sit well in a mix.

Antique Toy Piano features

  • 1 NKI patch for full version of Kontakt 4.2 and higher.
  • 24 bit, 44.1 khz uncompressed.

Antique Toy Piano for Kontakt 4 and 5 (full version) is available for purchase for £2 GBP.
