I am still looking for something good for piano sounds..any vst or something in Kontakt..Thanks
Vienna Imperial is totally amazing, Alicias Keys not bad, any of the Komplete pianos are worth a go.
Also a new fat 450Gb Production Piano out soon, might get that in a few months.
I use the pianos in Komplete. Usually the upright piano or New York Grand.
Komplete has good e-pianos too (eg Rhodes)
I like Alicia’s Keys the most.
Hi Israil, congrats with cool battle vs Portugal, great goals by your team. Nice tread, I also want to know, hich one is good, I mean kontakt libraries. And as well I think it all depends on velosity you try to do you sound.
I just purchased Addictive Keys. It has a grand, an upright and a Rhodes. So far I’m very impressed. As far as the grand, there is a ton of control over microphone choice and placement, there are presets with a lot of variety, and it just sounds really nice. I have and love Addictive Drums, which can almost seem like you’re working with real drums. I get the same vibe with Addictive Keys.
I think it depends on the arrangement: some piano that sound great in a “piano solo” track could not fit in the mix with other instruments, so I think it’s smarter to use different pianos for different purposes.
Vienna Grand with hard knee compression to cut through and Alicias Keys for mellow sound.
If I am doing anything with a pop or rock feel, it usually ends up being being the Upright or New York Grand from Komplete.
If it is solo or cinematic, I really like the Walnut Concert Grand from Imperfect Samples.
Occasionally, the Rain Piano from Sampletekk will get some work if I am doing something ambient.
