Chocolate Audio releases O.D.D. Grand Piano for Kontakt and updates The 88 Series Piano Bundle and Piano Engine to v2

-
Chocolate Audio

Chocolate Audio has released O.D.D Grand, their different take on the Grand Piano sound. They chose to sample the Yamaha C6 piano in Italy's Art&Music Studios with full detail (11 dynamic levels) but stop before the "ff" dynamic, in order to have a piano with a warm and intimate sound.

They carefully placed no less than 29 microphones around the piano in order to achieve many different sound signatures. They chose microphones which do not represent common choices for recording "ideal pianos", but mics they found were complementing the sound they had in their minds and hearts.

They compiled and edited the whole thing as a set of 3 soulful and colorful instruments.

Features:

  • 20.56 GB (lossless compressed) library size, 20496 samples.
  • 3 NKI Instrument Files, each representing a different take on the same piano, the result of different odd mic techniques being put to good use.
  • 3 Sets of 4 microphones.
  • Oneiric Piano: AKG C414B-TLII, Wunder Audio CM7 FET, AKG C460-CK1, AKG C451E-CK22.
  • Dark Piano: AEA N22, Earthworks SR77, Beyerdynamic M88N (C), AEA N8.
  • Dreamy Piano: AKG D190E, AKG C414B-ULS, Crown PZM30D, Sennheiser MD211.
  • 11 Sustaining dynamic layers, chromatically sampled.
  • 8 Release trails layers, chromatically sampled.
  • Easy-to-use mixer for extreme sound-mangling.
  • Custom User Interface.
  • Velocity curve management.
  • Piano tone control, makes the piano sound softer or harder under your fingers.
  • Many under the hood techniques to make the piano true to the original (life-like re-pedaling, release trails attenuation, intelligent attenuation of each single dynamic layer for maximum dynamic response...).
  • 101 Custom, high quality IR reverbs (not the usual IR reverbs you find on other Kontakt libs).
  • 22 (+ 22) compressor + tape presets.
  • 71 (24 + 25 + 22) factory presets + user-saveable presets.
  • Works as stand-alone, AAX, RTAS, AU and VST for Mac and PC inside Kontakt 5.5.2 full version or better.

Price: 129.00 USD and is on launch offer until March 18th for 99.00 USD.

Additionally, they have updated The 88 Series Piano Bundle to v2, now including O.D.D. together with 4 of their older pianos all for 299.00 USD list. All free updates and paid upgrade paths have been made available to current users via email.
