SampleTekk has released Cin-B, a new “Shaped Grand Piano” instrument library.

The CIN-B is a hybrid. We took a Grand Piano and morphed in the attack part from a Harpsichord. since the Harpsichord works with plucked strings, and also has a bright, almost brittle timbre, the tone produced in the CIN-B is totally unique. We then layered the sound with a mellotron mixed choir, most prominent in the lower velocities, so when played softly, the choir part is more in front, but when you hit it harder, the choir just gives a slight dreamy mist over the tone.

The samples have been processed using some cool vintage outboard and even resampled using a ¼ inch analog tape machine. To add extra warmth and glue everything together.

The result: A instrument that sounds like no other piano you’ve heard, that delivers a sound that we hope will inspire you as soon as you get it under your fingertips.

Cin-B for Kontakt, EXS24 & HALion is available for purchase for the introductory price of $24.50 USD (regular $49 USD).
