Character Piano for Kontakt
Welcome to the Delphi Piano series, volume 1: Autumn 1958. This instrument captures the rich, muddy and fuzzed out flavor of late 50s jazz, blues and big band piano. However, it's equally at home in arrangements for electronica, lofi, hip hop, ambient, postminimalism, contemporary classical and post rock. The Delphi Piano series explores the nuanced characteristics and distinctive styles of different musical eras of the 20th century. Each self-contained volume explores deep aesthetic impressions around its namesake theme, offering a expertly crafted sound-designed piano library with a wide selection of custom presets and atmospheric ambiences that evoke the zeitgeist of the times. Soundiron begin with a quintessential sound and then explore it deeply with a range of different stylistic motifs to take you on a textural journey into pure musical feeling.
The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more. Soundiron have also included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. The customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. They’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded-out by Soundiron's modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. Soundiron have added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
