NEW Westwood Alt Piano for Kontakt full- vintage upright sampled "in the crypt of a church"$59
"ALT PIANO is the complete and unabridged big sister to our infamous Upright Felt Piano.
We recorded an old, humble and character-filled upright piano from the 60s, with and without felt making this a piano with two very different characters. Soft and beautiful or bright and lively, or blend between the recordings to achieve a tone unlike anything else.
We also re-recorded the piano samples in three distinctly different and unique ways to create a series of textural sound layers, which can be mixed with the natural piano or used on their own.
With dozens of other unique and interesting controls, you can create a very diverse range of sounds all from just one instrument."

"The signal started with a matched pair of Coles 4038’s as close as we dare put them to the hammers, to capture a really detailed sound. A stereo pair of AKG 414’s made an excellent job of providing a more natural and open perspective. We used a pair of SE-2‘s on the rear soundboard which gives you a boxy and bright sound. Finally we set up another stereo pair of AKG 414‘s right in the furthest and vaults of the room to record a really distant and ambient perspective.
All of these microphones can be mixed independently with the addition of a stereo width control per channel on the Kontakt interface so you can dial in exactly the sound you want."
