Key Instruments

We are a new Dutch developer of virtual instruments for the Native Instruments platform.
And we are very proud of our first release "The Oeser", which is a 150 year old Viennese baby grand piano with a very rich and intimate tone.
This piano was recorded @ the Key studios in the most pure way, with world class microphones and preamps. It is not an overproduced, polished piano, but just a very good piano with more character than Elton John. A true singer/songwriter piano, which will spark creativity by the unique sound and recording styles.

What you get

We have recorded the piano in 4 ways: Pure, Felted, Muted and Picked. Where the first 2 are fairly obvious, the Muted was accomplished by hand muting the strings which gave it a plucky sound and the Picked was done by playing the strings with a guitar pick which made the piano sound like a harpsichord.
This resulted in a gigantic NKS library of 30GB and is also compatible with the free Kontakt Player. The 8 knobs of our simplified interface corresponds with the 8 knob layout of Native Instruments' Komplete Kontrol midi keyboards.

Key features
  • Full length samples (up to 1:45)
  • Real time sustain cross-over
  • Create your own balans with 3 microphone positions
  • Adjustable playability
  • Add pedal and mechanical noises to taste
  • True sympathetic resonance
  • Not normalized or compressed, to match the real experience
  • CPU friendly while using ridiculous amounts of voices
