UPRIGHT FELT PIANO is the infamous free version of our ALT PIANO.
It features just the beautiful felt recordings and the basic controls you need for a great soft piano sound.

Made for Kontakt
FULL version 5.6.8 and above required.
Will NOT work on the free Kontakt Player

We custom felted the strings to take out the top end but not any of its unique character. What we were left with is a beautiful, warm and intimate sound.

Listen to some examples.

Tune the perfect sound.

Noises

Keys
Fine tune the individual sounds of the hammers and dampers, A responsive control that naturally changes volume with your performance.

Pedal
Control the volume of the sustain pedal being pressed and released. Dial in a full on thump or remove completely.

Sound

Saturation 
Add some grit with this included tape saturation control. A little goes a long way.

Width
A powerful control which allows you to dial in the stereo width of the entire piano, from a purely mono signal to an immersive wrap around sound.

Reverb 
A natural sounding hall reverb which will blend in to most existing mixes.

EQ

Low/Mid/Hi 
A simple and broad stroke EQ. The controls allow you to cut or boost a wide part of the frequency spectrum and will add or remove a lot of sound very quickly.

We suggest you don’t need to do a lot to achieve a big difference, so go steady!

Microphone Mixer

Close | Stereo Coles 4038
One of our favourite microphones. Add plenty of this signal to bring out the detail of the piano

Room | Stereo AKG C414
A wider and more open sound, we love this blended just a fraction with the close mics to add some air and space.

Soundboard | Mono sE-2
Bring out a more vintage and wooden boxy sound with this mic position.

Master
Control the overall volume of all the mics with the master fader.

Simple interface.

We made sure we designed a UI that is simple enough to use without an instruction manual, but powerful enough to craft the sound without reaching for anymore plugins.
