SampleTekk has announced the release of Rain Piano MkII, an update to the piano library inspired by Tom Waits’ ”Mule Variation” album.

Rain Piano MkII features Sympathetic Resonance – The life & soul of the piano.

Since the samplers has been become more advanced and the Rain Piano 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. So, we got the original master recordings out, (and they where in 24 bits), made some refinements to them and built the instrument from scratch.

We also added hammerback and pedalnoise samples and release 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 Rain Piano MkII!

Rain Piano MkII features

  • Up to 11 velocity levels.
  • True Resonance.
  • 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 library is available to purchase for $79 USD. Requires full version of Kontakt 4 or higher.
