a piano VI for every ear
by Stan Stewart
Some are tried and true, but there are new contenders in the piano sound library world.
this is not the first time I've compared piano virtual instruments. Hammersmith Pro is a favorite sample library. In this web-story, I'll be introducing new options.
...think about what this means.
So glad I found Noire sample library and surprised that this VI is so deep and inspiring!
Fracture Sounds has a piano VI that sounds very convincing and has lots of useful features including room "tone" and ambient layers. Check out Spotlight Piano.
The Simple Sam Signature Series is a superb set of sound libraries for grand piano. I am enjoying the broad capabilities of this VI!
Orange Tree Samples is a favorite maker of sound libraries. While listening for this comparison, I'm particularly taken with the sound of their Evolution Rosewood Grand.
No, there aren't 99 piano sample libraries. But there are 38 grands and 11 uprights for you to listen to and compare. Let me know what you think.
