Westwood has recently released the Upright Felt Piano, a free Kontakt instrument library that brings the sounds of a well loved piano.

The instrument comes with multiple mic positions (close, room and soundboard) and an easy to use, intuitive interface.

Our Upright Felt Piano is born from a mission to find and sample a piano filled with interesting and natural character. Using some classic vintage microphones through the highest quality signal path, we created a Kontakt instrument that is perfect for intimate, alternative film scores.

We custom felted the strings to take out the top end but not any of its unique character. What we were left with is a beautiful, warm and intimate sound.

Upright Felt Piano is available for download for the full version of Kontakt 5.6.6 or higher.
