SampleTekk has announced the release of 7CG MkII, a Yamaha C7 grand piano instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Seven Seas Grand, 7CG, was recorded at OAL studios in Stockholm Sweden using a Yamaha C7 Grand Piano. We used a matched pair of Neumann U89 for picking up the sound of this great instrument.

Since the samplers has been become more advanced and the 7CG still are one of our most popular pianos, we decided to bring it up to date and add some functions in the line of the original ideas. We also added hammerback and pedalnoise samples. Then we added our True Resonance feature and used Kontakts scripting facilities to make Real Time/True Pedaling, Sympathetic Resonance and some other nifty features, and, Voila: The 7CG MkII.

7CG MkII features

  • 31 velocity levels.
  • More the 4500 samples.
  • TimeVel Release Technology ™.
  • Sympathetic Resonance.
  • Controllable volume for key/pedal noise.
  • Controllable volume for Sympathetic Resonance and True Resonance.
  • 24 bit 44.1 stereo samples.

The sample library is available for the introductory price of $49.50 USD (regular $149 USD).
