CSP Compact Stage Pianos for Kontakt. This has an interesting UI. There are a few YouTube videos and a short thread from new members about it below.


Not quite sure how one would buy this and I don't see any "secure" website or purchase option. Maybe this is still in beta.

Got curious, so I did a little digging around. It looks like someone sampled a Yamaha CP88 and/or scripted it for Kontakt. That someone appears to be Júnior Porciúncula.


Isn't that piracy? The Yamaha CP88 piano voices must be copyright protected. Anyhow, I've seen loads of well known piano VSTs from that Porciúncula guy, available to download for free, sometimes called Lite versions of the original VSTs.

Apart from piracy concerns, it seems a bit stupid to sample a piano, that is already a sample, and a very small one, only one third or fourth of a gigabyte. Well, some people seem to like it.

Makes me wonder though, why am I spending hundreds of dollars on piano libraries up to 120GB in size, when a sample from a 300MB sample, sounds (almost) as well? And, in many instances, free of charge.
