Woodhammer Piano

The "Ancient Woodhammer Piano" is an Instrument Sample Library for Native Instruments' Kontakt 5. The history of this instruments sound goes back to the 18. 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.

This instrument sounds like an old piano with ancient mechanics and wooden hammers. If you need a piano that sounds like back in the 18. century, the Ancient Woodhammer Piano is your choice. This instrument breathes and lives its own life so it’s slightly out of tune here and there creating its unique charm.

Belle Glockenspiel

The "Ancient Belle Glockenspiel" is an Instrument Sample Library for Native Instruments' Kontakt 5. The Bell is a member of the metallophone-family and in regard of its size it is like the bigger sister of the Glockenspiel. The Bell is well known as an instrument used by marching bands to accompany the high flutes or the Lyra. While the Lyra is carried on a staff, sounding like a Glockenspiel, the Bell is played like a Vibraphone hanging in front of the player. 

The solid aluminum bars have a beautiful and warm sound in the middle section and a crystal clear voice in the higher octave reminding of a wonderful music box sound. The Ancient Belle Glockenspiel can be used in a variety of positions:  As a celesta in company of a big orchestra, as a glockenspiel in teen-rock and hand-clap tracks for commercials and promotions but also as a music-box in the horror-genre. Just open your mind and you will find out what it is capable of.
