Please include a photo of the piano (or a photo that represents its story) and a README.txt file that contains a the piano name, your name and the piano’s story.

The following is the preferred directory structure within the ZIP file:

samples/NR/ - noise reduced files (optional)
instruments/ - Kontakt/ESX24 instrument files
