We don’t know much about this particular instrument’s history - a friend of Soniccouture, Tomjuno, found it in one of Berlins’s many flea markets. It was sold to him by a vendor who specialises in DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik) era collectibles. It is a child’s toy piano, made of plastic.
It has a wonderfully clanky, bell like tone with very loud, distinctive key-off sounds as the keys disengage.
The instrument was recorded with a spaced stereo pair of vintage Neumann mics, in Normal Bias Studios, Berlin in August 2011.
This is not a Kontakt Player instrument. This means that you do need to own the full version of NI Kontakt to use it. It will only run in the free Kontakt Player in DEMO mode, for 15 mins.
If you are are an NI Komplete user, then you should have a full version of Kontakt.
System Requirements: Requires Kontakt 3.5 or later, Logic 9 or higher, Ableton Live v 8.2.2 or 9
