The Kawai Baby Grand Talkbook Mini Cassette Piano

The Kawai Baby Grand Talkbook Mini Cassette Piano


I live in the sub-tropics, on the most eastern point of this island continent and have had many visitors over the years. It’s hot, salty, humid and very sticky around these parts which perhaps isn’t the best location for a baby grand. It could be so much worse though…

I sit, hiss and wait, I listen and wobble a little, today you can hear me in all my glory through a time travelling device, the mini cassette dictaphone. It’s not clean and neither would I want it to be.

Do with me what you will.

Much love, Baby Kawai.

Notes on Kontakt Version by Matthias Baden:

This is a Kontakt version of Kevin Hay´s Kawai Baby Grand Talkbook Mini Cassette Piano. I also added some control knobs for reverb and the level of “pedal down” and “pedal up” noises. “NR” samples were noise reduced by use of Audacity.


Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
