Premier Sound Factory Piano Premier

Drum Tree®, Princess Koto “KAGUYA” and Shakuhachi Premier G, and now the 4th library of our new super High-Res digital recordings, PIANO Premier “at first light”. The previous version of PIANO Premier was recorded over 10 years ago, and now has returned as a brand new Steinway digital sample library.

It’s the same 96kHz, but the density of digital audio and energy of the samples is noticeably different from what you expect from a piano library.

Piano Premier “At First Light” features

  • 96kHz/24-bit Super Hi-Res raw samples.
  • 3 Different Stories: Crystal, Vintage (mono), Stage.
  • True Harmonic resonances.
  • Half-pedal system.
  • Variable Dynamic Range.
  • Master Keyboard Velocity Map.
  • Max Voice Optimize System.
  • Pedal trigger pedal action sound.
  • Adjustable Main and High Key Release Noises Independently.
  • 12 Impulse responses of Elegant Convolution Reverb.
  • Status Bar Information.
  • 12 pedal on layers and 12 pedal off layers.
  • 6 velocity release noise.

The library is available for $129 USD. It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.7 or higher.
