Westwood Instruments has announced the Alt Piano, a virtual upright piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Alt Piano is the complete and unabridged big sister to Westwood’s infamous Upright Felt Piano.

We recorded an old, humble and character-filled upright piano from the 60s, with and without felt making this a piano with two very different characters. Soft and beautiful or bright and lively, or blend between the recordings to achieve a tone unlike anything else.

We also re-recorded the piano samples in three distinctly different and unique ways to create a series of textural sound layers, which can be mixed with the natural piano or used on their own.

With dozens of other unique and interesting controls, you can create a very diverse range of sounds all from just one instrument.

The Alt Piano is on sale for the launch price of 35 USD/EUR or £29 GBP until July 31st, 2020. The regular price is 59 USD/EUR or £55 GBP.
