Audio Brewers has released Piano Toy, a toy piano recorded, mixed and delivered in Ambisonics and Stereo. Regardless of DAW or delivery method, Piano Toy can adapt to any speaker array configuration from stereo, all the way to binaural, surround, spatial audio, Atmos, and even VR applications or custom speaker arrays.
Although a toy Piano seems like a small and simple instrument, Audio Brewers recorded several articulations to make it a robust release: From natural Sustains, Keystrokes, Felt, Plucked, and even Muted, as well as 10 Sound Design looping pads, designed natively in Ambisonics.
Three Mix Perspectives
Piano Toy was recorded and mixed in different perspectives to help users shape their sound according to their needs, an Inside mix (widest image), a Musician mix (good image and good directionality) and a Far mix (great directionality).
Six octaves of artifacts-free sound
Thanks to the pitch-bend techniques developed for their previous releases, Piano Toy is a 6-octave instrument, free of any glitches that used to happen with traditional pitch-bend algorithms.
Intro Price: €14 until November 2nd, 2021 (Reg. €29).
Free Version: A 'Mini' version of 'Piano Toy' is also available at no cost. It includes 1 Round Robin, six octaves using Kontakt's own Pitch Shift engine and one of the Mixes, both in Ambisonics and Stereo.
Piano Toy runs in the full version of Kontakt 6.2.1+.
