This SFZ sound set uses samples from a 7 ft Kawai grand piano that I recorded in a church. My goal was to make an expressive and versatile virtual piano that I could use in future projects.
Features include three sampled dynamic layers, corresponding release samples, and a pedal sound for added authenticity.
(The panning of the samples is rather narrow, so I like to use a binaural pan filter to increase the spread by 50% or more.)

Internet musician Cuckoo taped his piano, sampled it and made an SFZ soundfont. All the notes have been sampled with 3 different velocity layers. As for the sound it ranges from a really light mellow harp-like tone on lower velocities to a very sharp tone with higher velocities, really interesting.
The original version uses aiff samples but it did not play well with some of the SFZ players I used, so I made a flac and a wav version.
This is the WAV. Link to the FLAC vers...

A tiny experimental piano sample library!
More info: https://sig-ex.com/2016/07/24/experimental-piano-00-sfz/
Artificial stereo panning and looping of long notes makes the over all sample library just 10.8mb without sacrificing number of samples, thus avoiding overstretching pitches.
For an even tinier (2.8MB) ogg version see:
Use with Plogue Sforzando, or other SFZ com...
