About LivingRoom Upright Piano

LivingRoom Upright Piano is a character upright piano for Kontakt sampler, SFZ and EXS24 that embodies the essence of a naturally sounding upright piano as it is when it was played for around a year since after tuning. Slightly de-tuned, not busted, not pristine. Just a realistically sounding and versatile upright piano sound.

All internal components of sounds and behaviours of the original piano was captured through deep-sampling of the piano’s acoustical components.

Modelled from an original large upright piano, from the early 1900s from a Swedish local piano maker, that was tuned to around 98% perfection for a realistic and natural living room piano sound. It was sampled in 3 close stereo microphone positions. The first one in “player position”, the second one below the keyboard and the third one on the rear of the piano. The sound is the most dry sound we could make and embodies the closest and most intimate sound of the piano.
