Soniccouture Releases Hammersmith FREE Piano for Kontakt Player

    Soniccouture has announced the release of Hammersmith Free, a free virtual piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

    This is the free version of the highly acclaimed Hammersmith Pro featuring a Model D Grand. The piano was recorded in British Grove Studio, Mark Knopfler’s recording facility in Hammersmith (hence its name), West London. The recording room is large with a double-height ceiling, and a very clear & pure acoustic.

    Hammersmith Free has a simple layout from where you can adjust the microphone position (a pair of Schoeps MK4 mics).

    But once you open the “Settings” page, you can fine-tune the response and performance of Hammersmith – tweak instrument noise details, fine-tune the playing response to your exact touch.

    There’s also a simple effects page, with a 4-band EQ to shape your piano sound. The Space Reverb module features Soniccouture’s custom impulse library built up over many years and recording sessions.
