SoundGhost has announced the release of a new Kontakt instrument library with the sounds of a piano recorded directly onto an old and dusty cassette recorder.
Lofi Piano features a beautiful upright piano combined with authentic cassette artifacts, perfectly suited to anyone looking to bring in the lofi aesthetic into their productions.
Sounding like a recording straight out of someone’s basement in the ’80s, this piano has all the characteristics of Lofi you’d expect straight out of the box. We went to the length to record every single note directly to cassette tapes to provide you with the authentic vintage lofi sound. No more fiddling with tape emulations – this Lofi Piano is the reel deal. Don’t expect a pitch perfect and pristine piano.
We’ve concentrated on providing controls that have a more immediate impact on the lo-fi sound we’ve all come to expect – noise, saturation, filtering and reverb, all available on the UI straight away. You can also shape the sound with amplitude envelopes and filters to taste. Use the high pass to remove even more low frequencies or trim the attack for a slower, reversed-like piano effect.
Lofi Piano features
- Add tape color with the saturation control – bring in subtle saturation for a warmer sound, or drive it for a crunchier, burned-out recording.
- 3 reverbs chosen specifically for the lofi aesthetic.
- Choose from an old gramophone, a medium sized study room or an epic expanse for ambient lofi feels.
- Shape the sound with envelopes and filters to taste.
- Use the high pass to remove low frequencies or trim the attack for a slower, reversed-like piano effect.
- Filter out lower noise frequencies with the high pass filter.
- Rain, Cassette and Vinyl noise volume controls and play/stop functions.
Lofi Piano for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.0 or higher is on sale for the intro price of £19 GBP until July 18th, 2021 (regular £39 GBP).
