  • This quickly became one of my favourite pianos

    Pianos can be a very subjective topic. I can't explain it, there is something about this piano patch that I absolutely love. It's a simple plug-n-play piano, no extra options, no effects, nothing. The sustain pedal has its very own sound effects, too. Nothing too fancy, but it adds something to it.

    In terms of sampling, there is VERY little noise that you will only notice if you hold many notes for a very long time, and only if you are listening on high-tier headphones, so I don't know why I am even mentioning this.

    There is nothing else to say really, you just have to see it yourself. You may or may not love this as well. It's up to you to decide.

  • Fabulous sounding upright...

    Perhaps one of the best-sounding uprights on PB, this library is sure to impress. Impeccable consistency and sampling give a realistic performance every time and the GUI gives just the right amount of control without being overwhelming. Stefingo's best library without a doubt!

  • Wonderful characterful piano

    I love this piano. No bells or whistles, just wonderful characterful tone. It has a lovely "aged" old piano sound but without sounding out of tune or too weird and warbly. I have used it for a few folk guitar instrumentals to add some subtle Nick Drake "Pink Moon" style minimal piano melodies.

  • apt description

    If you're looking for that older piano sound but don't want to go full antique, this is the piano for you. It has a very aged upright sound, and as the description says, its a quick and dirty sampling, but I like it. I have a lot of projects that I like to have a range of older pianos, some broken/out of tune, and some like this one, just having a few wonky keys and a real murky low end. Not an all-around piano, but definitely a perfect sound for the right situation.

  • Warm sound nice upright

    It has warm and gentle textured piano sound. I hear a little distorted sound, but probably it is a part of character of the sound. I especially like the sound of the higher register. I think the link of GUI is broken?
