A toolkit to create presence, reality but also interesting textures and silences.

When recording and collecting sound effects, you end up with a lot of noise: Microphone hits, Plosives, Wind pops, rattles, drops. Just plain noise.
These unwanted orphan sounds often get deleted, or end up in a some forgotten folder. Then sometimes you need a sound. A timbre that you just can't name. A raw sound that though manipulation, can become new and remarkable. That's what this SFX library is: Raw, dirty, short sounds that in the right hands – your hands – have potential.

The Keyless Piano Body is a Kontakt Patch library that features an abandoned upright piano without keyboard.
The library encompasses the results of three extensive recording sessions and features the wonderful and reverberant sound of these piano remains.
For session 1 and 2 the body was brought to a studio and literally laid back so that various things like plastic balls, felt balls, glasses and much more could be thrown in to excite the strings. At the end of both sessions tons of samples were ready to edit. They now form 13 Kontakt instruments that encompass several precisely tuned pianos plus many prepared piano sets.
Session 3 was kind of a field recording gig as the piano remains were meanwhile moved to a rural garden area. The nightly recordings were done 6-channel so that several sample sets from 2 acoustic mics and 4 contact pick ups could be created. Again, the Kontakt instruments from this session feature the sounds of a rotten piano that is lovely and impressive at the same time. In a second pass the piano strings were treated with a stell jazz brush to bring up 3 multi-channel sets with prepared piano-like sounds.
Please see the Patch List here or below to learn more about the individual instruments. Also note that The Keyless Piano Body requires Kontakt 4 or higher.
