Lo-fi grand piano

A Kontakt piano with a difference. Making just another piano instrument plug-in is pointless unless you do it differently. Old Tape Piano features a grand piano recorded into a very lo-fi cassette recorder, Old Tape Piano is a unique instrument that sounds unlike any other Kontakt piano library. Make no mistake this isn’t some untuned relic of a piano. We took a great sounding, tuned piano, not some old piano like that sits in your unloved in your grandparent’s house.

Very addictive

It has a very lo-fi vibe to it, don’t expect a clean, pristine and crystal sounding piano, it’s quite the opposite…
and I love it.
