I stumbled upon this library while looking for a piano vst... it seems cool! Unfortunately I can't try it, as I don't have Kontakt, but I thought maybe you'd be interested.

You can download the free Kontakt Player and try it (time limited Demo, need to restart Kontakt every 15 mins)

I have tried it. When I listed to it on my headphones I didn't particularly like it, but after playing a couple of software pianos and the supernatural in my Roland I hooked it to the speakers of my piano and well it sounded very good, even better than the Pianoteq, the Ravenscroft and the Roland I had just played. Can't explain why. My wife was surprised too... I had told her listen to this free piano I downloaded today, it's not as good as my usual pianos... them I played and she was like "uhm, what a nice sound! are you sure you are hooked the right one?"

Thanks! The demo recordings sound very nice indeed to me with headphones - haven't tried loudspeakers yet but I rarely use speakers.

Greg.

For some reasona I thought it was not compatible with the player version (some vsts are), but now that I look more carefully it's not written anywhere! So it might work! Thanks, I'll try.

I'm glad you liked it, hopefully I will, too!
(a line in on my piano would make things so much easier... I envy you)

I tried it briefly this morning. It is not bad at all, of course it is missing all artifacts and other stuff, but for being free it is a very good one.

I've tried it now - I really like the tone. There appears to be a serious problem with WAY too much silence at the beginning of some samples though, which makes it totally unplayable for me. If this problem were fixed, I'd be keen to play it some more. It's so bad that I had to load up another piano to make sure I didn't have a problem with my system, but the other piano worked fine. (I'll email the author directly)

Hi guys. I've been meaning to drop a word in for a while.

I can't say I noticed the laggy samples while testing the library before release, but it's definitely possible that they're there. I'm currently working on another free library, and I'll take a look at identifying and re-editing the laggy samples once that's done.

I also recently released the library in SFZ format, so you can use a free player like Sforzando instead of Kontakt!

Thanks for taking a look at the library. There are more exciting things to come!

Simon
