Riot Audio has released PUTTY PIANO, a new prepared piano instrument for Kontakt, sampled from an upright piano dampened with poster putty – in the UK often simply referred to as “Blutack”. The sample library was created as a fresh take on a timeless classic and is targeted at score composers and producers who are looking for a different sonic approach to a universally-loved instrument. PUTTY PIANO runs in Kontakt 5.8 and above (full version only) and is now available at riotaudio.com for a special introductory price of £59 (offer valid until 10th July 2019).
PUTTY PIANO is based on 0.95 GB of meticulously sampled recordings of a 1950s British upright piano (Bentley) dampened with a strip of poster putty (Blutack). The library contains three round robins and three dynamic layers (p, mf, f) for each note which are dynamically cross-faded using Kontakt’s AET Filter Technology. The piano was recorded at close range using a spaced pair stereo microphone technique.
