Chocolate Audio

Chocolate Audio has announced the release of The 88 Series Pianos Bundle for Kontakt with a special 35% off launch offer.

The four libraries making up the bundle, a total of 26GB and 21240 samples, cover a wide range of styles and crafting methods, from acoustic grand pianos to upright and electric models.

The Model 7 Grand (from a '80s C7), Model D Grand (from a '30s vintage D274) and Steinbach Upright feature 4 separate microphone sources. The microphones available in the release were chosen among up to 12 different possible sources, all top-notch models and recorded with the shortest possible path to the converters, featuring Millennia, Neve, SSL and Focusrite preamps fed into Apogee converters at 96K. Additionally Chocolate Audio chose the recording venue according to the pianos themselves: a studio with a large concert-like room for the grand codas and a studio with a medium-sized lively room for the upright piano.

The Model 80 Electric Grand (from a fully restored CP80) is a nice addition, being the only electric piano with proper piano hammer mechanics and a staple of the sound of popular music from the '70s and '80s.

  • 9.12 GB (lossless compressed) library size, 6640 samples.
