A different kind of Piano Instrument for Kontakt and Kontakt Player
Introducing Session Keys Upright, a different kind of piano, offering a unique tonal quality that can provide music creators with the piano sound they’ve been looking for to give their music character. It's difficult to describe something that is made to be heard but imagine intimate clarity, a distinctive timbre and effortless emotive power; these are just three ways to expound the virtues of the Session Keys Upright.
This piano is no lightweight, with a total size of 40GB; Session Keys Upright is the most comprehensive and authentic software implementation of an upright piano available today. Utilising two distinct sample sets and flexible sound shaping options, Session Keys Upright provides producers, composers and sound designers with a sonic playground to explore, helping to realise and enhance a wide variety of productions.
For film scoring and the charts
Session Keys Upright features two sample sets, each with its own look, feel and sound identity:
"open" is characterized by spatial stereo sound with individual notes meticulously detuned, creating a chorus-like effect when combined. These interactions between notes establish the ideal conduit for creating atmospheric and evocative sounds for film scores, games as well as hip-hop tracks.
"closed" is for musicians demanding a modern, intimate and perfectly tuned piano for their tracks. Direct, focused and edgy, a sound that fits perfectly into any modern piano production or solo interpretation including pop, indie and rock genres.
Thanks also to the authentic sustain resonances, additionally recorded noises and complex effects, musicians can achieve a breath-taking level of sonic diversity often taking them to unexpected territory and enriching the creative process.
