Upright Piano (Recorded Binaurally)

by Michael Picher

Uploaded on Sep 02, 2016 (and last updated on Sep 06, 2016)

Unlike other virtual pianos, this one will give you the sensation of sitting at the piano bench directly in front of the keys. This effect is best experienced when you wear headphones. Features include samples for when the damper pedal is both up and down, sampled releases, and even damper pedal sounds that all recorded binaurally from a playing position! Update: Added sampled key release sounds.

The Shrine Piano v1.3 (Sampled Grand Piano SFZ)

by Michael Picher

Uploaded on Mar 27, 2017 (and last updated on Mar 27, 2017)

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.) Check out my other virtual instruments...

Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra is a free orchestral sample library.

It's primarily aimed at beginners, but also more experienced composers looking for something lightweight and/or portable might find it useful.

The Ghent Carillon

by Soni Musicae

Uploaded on Aug 24, 2015 (and last updated on Dec 30, 2015)

This sf2 soundbank, called the Ghent Carillon, is made with free samples found on the following site: http://bimbam.be/EN/klokken.html They are mono but good sounding, and respect the resonance of the 54 bells, from B flat to F, on 4 octaves. The samples have been converted from mp3 to wave, and regularly disposed in space from left to right, using the pan adjustment in the soundfont with Vienna Soundfont. In this belfry, there are no bells for the B and the C sharp of t...

Extra considerations: The soundfont was created by Soni Musicae but the samples are free and come from Ghent (Belgium) city's clock and were made available by a non-profit organization. The original site is now dead (but is linked here and can be accessed via Internet Archive) so most of the uses here should be okay.

D. Smolken's multi-sampled double bass (aka contrabass)

by DSmolken

Uploaded on Aug 29, 2015 (and last updated on Dec 27, 2015)

DSmolken at the KVR Audio Forum posted about sampling his acoustic double bass (aka contrabass) and how to best use the samples. Two primary sets of samples are provided - arco (that's bowed) and pizz (plucked) - with the addition of various "noises". If you check out his performance video, on YouTube, you might see what these might be used for... also the start of the demos below. Arco is 5 velocity layers with 2 round robins, pizz is 3 velocity layers with 3-4 round rob...

This is a Hydrogen Drumkit made using the Big Mono drum samples from Analogue Drums. This file is hosted by Jeremy alias AutoStatic.
