The "Ancient Woodhammer Piano" is an Instrument Sample Library for Native Instruments' Kontakt 5. The history of this instruments sound goes back to the 18th century when Cembalo, Clavichord and Pianoforte were common.
This recorded example gives you the feeling of a piano that hits the strings made of brass with wooden hammers. The brass-strings were attached to a wooden frame which could not withstand much pressure.
That is why the string-tension was not as high as todays pianos (build with steel-strings and metal frames) and opening the window could ruin all the tuning-work.
If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in Ancient Woodhammer Piano
- The best mix of Cembalo, Piano & Honkytonk
- 88 keys, 3 Velocity-Layers, 5 Round-Robins each
- Soft & Normal patches referring to softness of the hammer-impact on the string
- Contains a very small amount of original room - can easily be wrapped into custom reverbs
- Over 1200 samples
- custom spread-knob for widening the stereo panorama
- At least 700 MB of hard drive space
- Kontakt 5 required Full version - Will only work in demo mode in Kontakt Player
