The Experimental Lo-Fi Bundle includes...
“Verticale” is what the Italians call an upright piano, and that’s exactly what this virtual instrument captures in detail: a beautiful, intimate upright meticulously recorded both natural and felted.
Developed for the free Kontakt Player 7, Verticale was recorded with four layers of felt – to our knowledge this is the only quadruple felt piano available today! The natural patch is pure and warm, the felt is rich and mellow, and, combined with the onboard features and effects, Verticale will take your music to new heights of cinematic emotion and lo-fi nostalgia.
Verticale includes a unique “Cassette” signal, created by passing the samples to cassette through an old 4-track cassette recorder set to record at high speed and then playing back the tape at minimum speed. The result is a pitch-shifted and warped sound: a great way to add a lo-fi patina to your music.
"It provides sonority, colour and pianistic personality in a perfect little package, which is a rare commodity in a sample suite. You can never have enough piano samples to call upon, and Verticale will deliver a perfect addition for any producer who regularly requires uprights." 9/10 and Value Award - Computer Music magazine

"The combination of the Main samples and the harmonics coaxed from the Noise section can make for some hauntingly beautiful sounds, from ethereal pianos and plucks to warm and washy pads. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first encountered Harmonic Bloom but I’ve quickly grown to like it very much and I suspect that musicians into ambient styles of composition will find it especially attractive. 5/5" Paul White, Sound on Sound
