The Struck Grand delves deep into the art of piano abuse. This 9+ GB virtual prepared piano library explores unusual piano string articulations: mallet strikes, finger mutes, plucks, steel slide bends, bass string scrapes, harmonics, metal hammer hits and other exotic playing methods. We sampled this 1926 Steinway Model L parlor grand piano in detail, capturing more than 4000 samples covering the full 88-key range. This Kontakt giant shines as both a melodic tuned percussion instrument and a massive stringed zither, with a broad pitch range, expressive dynamic response and a rich, complex musical character.

The Struck, Harmonic, Mallet and Gliss elements work for dramatic and suspenseful scoring, while the Steel Hammer, Slide and Picked sections offer a nuanced classical feel. With rumbling bass and glistening highs, we've captured each articulation up close with lots of presence, detail and clarity. The Gliss/Strum Creator system performs life-like strums and string glisses, with key and chord constraining, stroke direction, alternation, speed, arpeggiation and more. This library goes far beyond any other piano "effect" library you've heard before - you'll feel The Struck Grand live and breathe under your fingertips.
