There are a lot of piano sample libraries out there, costing several hundreds of pounds for multi-gigabyte libraries, some of which I already own.
Incredibly, the piano library I find myself calling up most in the Kontakt sample VST, is the “Soft Piano” instrument from Spitfire Labs.
In case you don’t know – Spitfire Audio produce some of the finest orchestral and natural instrument libraries available, usually priced at a premium for high quality instrumentation and audio perfection.
In addition to their regular retail offerings, they also offer some experimental sampled instruments via their Spitfire Laboratories label, which can be purchased for a minimum charity donation of £2.00 to UNICEF.
In amongst other great sounds, you will find their Soft Piano – which sounds incredible. It’s a dark, moody, spooky piano sound, which you can hear used in my Crafting Mines track here.
To download the instrument for yourself, check out their special laboratories offerings by visiting their store here:
