Orchestral Tools releases Vivid Keys for their own Sine Player engine.

Vivid Keys

Quote
Versatile Studio Grand
The warm, organic sound of a classic grand piano—in vivid detail.

Recorded in a dry studio using close mics, Vivid Keys captures the pure, direct sound of a Yamaha C3 grand piano—a mainstay of recording studios worldwide. By using the soft pedal for all samples, Vivid Keys delivers rich, round timbres.

Three ready-to-go mixes let you start creating right away. The natural mix offers an upfront, present sound with just a touch of optional reverb. The cinematic mix builds on the softer dynamics of the raw piano tone, adding a large, shimmering pad. And the tight pop mix uses dynamic compression to provide the punch for cutting through any production.

Intro price until November 19

Thought I'd post this here because this is not another Kontakt piano, and it uses a new proprietary player engine that Orchestral Tools developed on their own. Considering how often I've been disappointed in Kontakt pianos, this might be worthy of consideration.

Thanks for posting. I might prefer all samples not to be soft pedal.

Soft pedal for all samples? I'll pass... But the C3 really hits home -- I personally have a Yamaha C3 in China! But I asked a tuner friend to tame down the sound abit, so he voiced the hammers in a way to make it sound rounder and more, in my opinion, European.
