Piano in 162 is a free sample library of a Steinway Model B grand piano by Ivy Audio, available in Kontakt, SFZ, and Korg Kronos formats. It is available to download completely free of charge for personal and commercial use.
Allows for mixing, loading, and purging of the close and ambient mics to fit the library into any mix or genre.
High Quality Recording
Piano in 162 was recorded at 96kHz through two pairs of Rode NT5 cardiod microphones, an ambient pair in the hall and a close pair inside the piano.
Piano in 162 features five dynamic levels, two round robins, and separate pedal on and off samples for a true to life sound with realistic sympathetic resonance.
All keys sampled with:
- Two microphone positions
- Five dynamic levels.
- Two round robins.
- Sustain pedal on and off.
This is NOT a Kontakt player library, and requires a full version of Kontakt to run. If you’re looking for a completely free option, download the SFZ version and load it into a free sampler like Plogue Sforzando.
