Prisma Sounds has recorded an old detuned piano left in an abandoned school to create its latest Kontakt instrument library, Upright Detuned.

Upright Detuned was born by sampling an old detuned piano sitting for years in Leo Val’s film school in Finland. The piano’s sound was unstable, the sustain very short and the lid made all sorts of noises, which gave it a peculiar eerie quality. The result is a wispy, lively, whimsical instrument perfect for any haunting situation.

Upright Detuned features

  • 5 round robins.
  • Fully controllable ghostly drone layer.
  • Release triggers.
  • Adjustable ghost noises.
  • Built-in reverb with 3 custom IRs.
  • Built-in delay, saturation and rotator effects.
  • UI element design by Leo Val.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher, Upright Piano is priced $19 USD.
