I usually play plugin instruments with my 88 keys master keyboard…but something was missing. One day, I decided to visit a piano store and I had no idea about real pianos. There was about a hundred of different models exposed. The vendor was kind enough to let me try any pianos freely in the different space and rooms during a whole afternoon.
Suddenly I felt in love with the sound of a second hand C.Bechstein C118 built in 2010. My ignorance shocked the vendor because I had no idea about the piano brand C.Bechstein. I also truly love the sound of this felt piano sound. I tried to record this sound for you with a pair of AKG 414.
There are only one layer of sounds and a release noise. for a first experience of sampling, the result was a good surprise in Kontakt: not only it sounds quite interesting but it matches so well when layered with another spitfire library : British Drama Toolkit -especially with the patch Strings Ensemble Long-.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Heavy noise and balance issues
Unfotunately there is too much noise going on here, and the panning is very left-sided. The dynamics are low and the attack is really weird in my opinion. There is not anything else to comment on, other that I suggest you look for something else.
Lovely rich, warm felted sound slightly hampered by some noise artifacts as the notes are held. Certainly has it's own personality though.
