Upright Pianos: Forte

Character-packed upright pianos for Kurzweil Forte



We visited upright pianos and captured their homey sound. There’s a lot of character, a lot of depth, a bit of intonation, but heaps of playability in this unique sample library. Captured on a 20-bit Layla recording system using vintage Cole Ribbon microphone and clip-on Sony mics, the unique approach to recording these pianos capture the years of history residing within the black and whites. 

A complete list of the instruments recorded in this collection is contained in a documentation PDF, available on the “Download” tab.

Listen to the demos – if want a unique, expressive piano tone in your composition, this bargain-priced collection is well worth the small investment.
