Cinematique Instruments releases Deconstructed Piano for Kontakt

Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of Deconstructed Piano for Kontakt 4 and higher.

The Instrument

Even if the word "Piano" is included in the Deconstructed Piano, this instrument isn't quite like anything one would expect as a piano. Explore a familiar sound of a piano in a complete new way. Play textures, strikes, hits and sustained sounds including screws.

The Content

Cinematique Instruments have disassembled a piano to its soundboard and have worked on this in many different ways: they have played, hit, stroke and destructed the piano with a wide range of materials. They have used a regular piano hammer, different kinds of mallets such as a felt, screws, plecs, sticks, thumbs and even straws to coax new inspirational harmonic sounds from the instrument.

In order to achieve additional percussive material, Cinematique Instruments have captured 24 different percussion sounds (recorded in multi round robin variations) which can be easily mixed to the entire piano sound or just be used separately for experimental purposes.

They have also recorded plenty of textures, soundscapes and noises of the piano by scrubbing, hitting or playing the soundboard. While disassembling the piano they have recorded all the noises of destruction done with a sledgehammer and put this into an extra patch.

The Structure

The instrument comes with three completely different patches: The Piano – Strikes – Textures.

The piano patch is the basic instrument. It delivers three different sound categories with eleven piano sounds in total. By dragging, you can control the volume of each sound. It gives you the possibility to combine and create your own instrument setting. Besides an attack and decay slider, the instrument provides a button that randomizes the volume of each of the 11 sounds which results into new sound combinations. The patch also includes an FX section in which you are able to choose reverb, delay, distortion and an EQ.

Explore the sound of a sledgehammer bursting on the piano, a crowbar trying to rip off the strings and more. All these sounds and noises were sampled to create huge impacts.

Finally Cinematique Instruments have collected plenty of soundscapes. This patch is a useful tool to create evolving textures with tension. Beside the above mentioned sound options of EQ, reverb, attack, decay, distortion, this patch provides and automatic volume variation with speed control as well as an "hold" button for an infinite sound.

Price: €74 / $85.
