The Kinderklavier is a classic toy piano, sampled in great detail. It features 25 keys, each sampled with 8 round robin variations and an average of 6 velocity layers. The instrument has a small wooden body with metal tines that function as resonators.
They have a klonky, reverberant character, with a raw unpredictability that makes this instrument perfect for scoring animation and children's music. The plastic keys of the Kinderklavier have a unique rattle when played aggressively, which are included as optional release samples.
In addition to standard deep sampling, the Kinderklavier was beaten with sticks and mallets, dismantled, probed, strummed and tortured in just about as many ways as Soundiron could think of, creating a variety of unique percussion and effects. It also includes a variety of sound designed ambiences crafted from the raw recordings.
Topping off the library is a set of controls for each preset and 46 of reverb impulses. Modwheel automation allows pitch adjustment of up to +/- 6 octaves. Attack and release knobs are included allowing you to fully sculpt the performance.
An offset knob also allows you to cut into the samples, creating unique pad and glitch effects. The samples have been stretched up and down the entire keyboard and includes a "Natural Range" button to constrict the playable key range to just the original 25 keys of the kinderklavier.
