I’m new to Kontakt and sampling in general, and love the idea behind Pianobook. I wanted to contribute so I sampled my Wurlitzer 200a. This was a learning exercise for me. Wallpaper and knobs are images of my piano.

There are three sets of samples: direct, XY pair on the speaker (only one works), and XY pair for the inside mechanical sounds. Also release triggers, which are grouped with the mechanical sounds.

I attempted to use a contact mic, but the results were not really useful.

It’s named BaltiWurli because I am a proud resident of Baltimore, Maryland.

Release is too long

Hi, I am using the decent sampler version, so I do not know if there are more options in Kontakt. But the overall sound is pretty great. I would like to see a release time on the notes because they play too long. Even when I turn RT all the way off. Also the velocity levels seem a bit odd. I have to press pretty hard and sometimes keys are triggered too softly or too harshly. But for a first attempt it is pretty good!
