Riot Audio has released Putty Piano, a Kontakt instrument sampled from an upright piano dampened with poster putty – in the UK often simply referred to as "Blutack". The sample library was created as a fresh take on a timeless classic and is targeted at score composers and producers who are looking for a different sonic approach to a universally-loved instrument.
The sound of Putty Piano is a unique alternative to more traditional piano sample libraries. Its short decay and peculiar muted resonance opens up new possibilities of sonic exploration and expression in place of a regular piano sound.
- Kontakt sample library based on upright piano dampened with poster putty.
- Three mechanical and human noise layers for controlled realism.
- Special "Body" layer for control of tonal resonance.
- Simple, clean one-page user interface.
- Runs in full version of Kontakt 5.8 and above.
Price: £59 until 10th July, then £79.
