Reaktor 5 or lower
Instrument Sampler

DESCRIPTION

It is based on 114 samples taken over a range of 8 octaves and for 4 different velocities (pp, mp, mf, ff).

For sound tweaking, it has two different filters that can be applied in either-or fashion, an LFO, and an effects section.

Version 3.4 changes:

The LFO section has been reworked to allow synchronization to Reaktor BPM clock

A separate Foot Volume slider is included

And finally, thanks to the new Reaktor User Library, there is no need anymore to host the 60MB ZIP file somewhere else - so the ensemble can be downloaded directly from here (as it should be:-)

+++

If Reaktor crashes when loading the ensemble, your machine most probably has not enough RAM to handle the samples. In this case, you may try the Piano Light version, also in the User Library.

Thanks arnd for putting links bak up. And I'm glad you are still in Reaktor land after all this time. 7 years on and most will find this no problem to run or download, nor will they regret it. Excellent ensemble, thanks.

Hey Arnd, if you need this to be hosted again I have a different webserver now and can resume hosting again. Sorry about not being able to host it before; the company I was using folded. Cheers, D

I just have lack of useful piano sound on reaktor. It is in good size and sounds nice. Thanks a lot!

Ok, the Piano is back in place. from time to time, it seems just to diffuse out of its download site...sorry. Bobby: I allowed myself to just re-upload it without further asking. hope you don't mind. :-)

Well, i like the sounds that come out of this, but the load time kills it as a vsti for other things. Thanks for all your hardwork, though, as i think this is an invaluable and exciting product.

Thanks for this. It's very nice but unfortunately I can't seem to use it as a plug-in. It works fine when I use it with the Reaktor Session stand alone app. Weird...

Thanks so much, arnd!! It definitely was well worth it to spend the several days it took my system with its low quality connection to intermittently download this. (Thank God for DAP.) I can always use a good piano. I'm also looking forward to checking out the different dynamic levels when I get access to my MIDI keyboard.

I wish it was an upright piano sound - you know - more humble and clunky than the regulation grand.

A very nice piano indeed. I'm glad you found someone to host it *snicker*.. Pure indulgence when combined with Ultimate Reverb!
