Free Grand Piano SFZ Library By Production Voices!
Production Voices has released Estate Grand LE, a free grand piano SFZ library (optimized for use with Plogue sforzando) featuring the sounds of the Kawai GS-60 semi-concert grand piano.
Estate Grand LE is based on the commercial Estate Grand sample library by Production Voices, featuring 791 samples from the full version of the product, with up to ten velocity layers per sampled note. The samples are provided in FLAC format. The free library takes 1.8 GB of disk space when extracted, although the download is well compressed into a compact 619 MB ZIP package. In addition, the freebie version’s custom scripted user interface for Plogue sforzando features pretty much the same functionality as the one found the full Estate Grand library, apart from the the M/S and room microphone controls that are not included. The users can control the volume of the pedal noise, key up and key release samples, as well as the parameters of the instrument’s built-in reverb effect.
