Soniccouture have released EP73 Deconstructed, a new Kontakt Player instrument, described as "a complete sonic exploration of a vintage Stage 73 electric piano".
The main Kontakt instrument features a very detailed sampling of the traditional keyboard instrument, with key-offs, pedal noise, round-robins and sympathetic resonance from the EP's harp mechanism. Microphone and contact mic channels are also available to add different dynamics and textures to the classic line-out sound.
Then comes the 'Deconstructed' part: Soniccouture have also created four other separate Kontakt instruments using unconventional techniques:
Each of these instruments offers a completely different take on the electric piano sound, using the pickups and tines in different ways to generate new musical pitched tones which are then mapped to Kontakt's keyboard.
Price: €99 / $129. Details and audio demos can be found on the Soniccouture website
