e-instruments releases "Session Keys Grand S" and "Session Keys Grand Y" for Kontakt Player & Kontakt

e-instruments announces the immediate availability of Session Keys Grand S and Session Keys Grand Y, two new Kontakt Player-based instruments featuring carefully selected acoustic grand pianos, meticulously recorded and combined with an inventive feature set.

Two Grand Pianos

Sessions Keys features two concert grand pianos and each one comes with two different characters to choose from: concert and studio. Session Keys Grand S delivers the rich harmonic structure, warm tone, and full resonances of the Steinway D4, while Session Keys Grand Y captures the clear, transparent and dynamic sound of a Yamaha CFIIIS. Rich overtones, sparkling high end, and a powerful bass range make this instrument the ideal complement to the Grand S.

Both Session Keys instruments offer unique sound design and music creation functionality.


The Pentamorph controller allows users to easily adjust the grand piano's acoustics – from standard characteristic sounds to atmospheres that go far beyond the obvious – as well as create movement on the fly using just one knob.

Session Animation

The Animator is designed to generate truly musical piano performances in the most flexible way. The source of musical inspiration, the Animator offers an intuitive way to create flexible piano phrases that follow your harmonies.

Harmonic Power with Smart Chords

For instant piano chords at your fingertips, Session Keys Smart Chord Mode provides a completely new and inventive way to add depth of musical expression to your production. Full chords or Animator riffs can be played via either the pad controller or single keys: just set the key of your song and let Smart Chord Mode create the harmonies.

Effects and Detailed Editing

Great tone comes from the unique resonances and noises that shape an instrument's sonic character. In addition to the Pentamorph controls, every parameter of the Session Keys grand pianos can be accessed and edited in detail to strengthen the individuality and expressiveness of the instrument – or to take it far beyond its standard sonic signature. EQ, Compression, Convolution Reverb and Delay Effects can all be adjusted for creative sound design without boundaries.

Pricing and Availability

Session Keys Grand S and Session Keys Grand Y are available online at the e-instruments website www.e-instruments.com, for $99 / €99 each or as a bundle for $159 / €159.

Both products work in the free Native Instruments Kontakt Player Version 5.2.1 or higher (or the full version of Kontakt).
