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.)

The sample set consists of several drum machines (listed below). Each drum machines sounds are spread out over each octave from C1 to C7. There are, in some cases, sounds from some machines that have been grouped with others. This is because that machine had more then 12 sounds. But, the basic layout is the same on each.
C = Bass Dr...
These sounds are available for personal or professional use in musical compositions. You may redistribute the original zip files under the following conditions.

2) The "read_me" text file contained in the zip packages must remain intact and unaltered.
With that, download away and go make some music.
