Soundiron has announced version 2.0 of Old Busted Granny Piano, an upright piano sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soundiron Old Busted Granny Piano

We’re excited to announce the release of a major update for one of our oldest releases, Old Busted Granny Piano! This complete overhaul features lots of mapping tweaks, a new user interface and integration of all of our latest technology.

For the brand new 2.0 version of our Granny Piano, we’ve tweaked the mapping and layering to make it feel more responsive and natural, combined the “Tuned” and “Untuned” versions into a single preset with an easy Tuning mode switch and implemented our proprietary voice management technology to minimize noise-floor build-up while maintaining performance. We’ve also incorporated a full range of user controls to allow total sonic shaping, and fine control over every detail of the sound.

You now have the power to shape note Attack and sample Offset to create gentle, ghostly pad-like sounds from even the harshest impacts. The Release control allows you to tighten the sound. Our powerful Uberpeggiator allows complex, adaptive arpeggiations and you’ll find tempo-syncing resonant filter and volume LFOs build into nearly every preset. We’ve also included a parametric EQ and convolution reverb with over 50 room and FX impulses to choose from instantly. And finally, the brand new Geriatrocities atmospheric sustains preset includes 12 custom ambiencies that can be blended and shaped freely, including the ability to play with polyphonic legato and custom-blend two unique layers at a time.

The sample library is available to purchase for $39 USD through November 20th, 2012 (MSRP $49 USD). The update is free for current owners of the library.
