Spitfire Audio has released Orchestral Grand Piano, a piano sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Orchestral Grand Piano is a super realistic “contextual” piano designed specifically to fit proudly within your full orchestral arrangements. Having recorded it in one of the greatest studios in the world we’re confident it will fit in with any palette. But if you’re an existing Spitfire user, this VI will seamlessly integrate.

Pianos tend to be recorded in a very scientific manner which is why, for larger orchestral mockups and realisations they can often be very difficult to blend in and mix. You will have no such problems here. We simply recorded the piano as we have the rest of our modules. In situ, a real-world setting with mics placed as they would be for any orchestral session. The end result a piano sounding as it would, where it would be and recorded as it would be for any of the great film scores to have been recorded in Air-Studios Lyndhurst Hall.

The Orchestral Grand Piano library for Kontakt (full version required) is available to purchase at the introductory price of £39 GBP.

Spitfire has also announced the upcoming Steven Devine’s Harpsichord sample library for Kontakt.

Soon to hit our shelves; Steven Devine graced us with the presence of his beautiful Harpsichord (the soundboard of which makes up this product’s artwork) enthusiasm, passion and detailed practical advise to complete our latest module which will be available for a limited period (until the 18th April 2012) at a once-off introductory price.
