    Sonex Audio Releases Free Stein D Grand Piano for NI Kontakt

    Sonex Audio has announced the release of Stein D Grand, a free sample-based instrument for NI Kontakt featuring a massive 6.3 GB library.

    They sampled a legendary Steinway D Acoustic Piano, using 4 separate mic positions: close (stereo and mono), middle, far, and ambience (room). There are up to 12 velocity layers, allowing for realistic performances/scores. Also, nearly 28GB of uncompressed sample content was compressed to 6.3 GB.

    Stein D Grand has an array of built-in effect modules such as 3-Band Equalizer, Compressor, Saturation, Distortion, Chorus, Reverb, Delay, Stereo Width and Limiter. Its unique GUI has been designed to give a user full control over options and effects without slowing down the creative process.

    This virtual instrument requires a full retail version of NI Kontakt 5.6 or later. Kontakt Player isn’t supported.
