Eilean Flannel Piano is a beautifully imperfect and close recorded upright piano designed for intimate neo-classical and film music inspired by artists such as Hania Rani, Ólafur Arnalds, and Nils Frahm.
Instead of felt, flannel was used.
Being a thinner fabric, this gives the piano a clearer, more focused sound whilst preserving much of the felted hammer sound we all love.
This allows more flexibility when it comes to shaping the sound and helping it sit in the mix in almost any genre.
Please note: FULL retail version of Kontakt 6.7.1 or later is required. NOT for Kontakt Player.
The instrument is first and foremost a piano. At its foundation is a beautifully imperfect upright piano that was rescued from sitting in a warehouse for almost 10 years.
Included are 3 pianos:
The piano section gives you control over key attack, key release, pedal, and pianist noises, including a dynamic response knob, and tone knob for quick sound shaping.
The Warp section is loaded with 6 “warp” sample sets curated and designed to blend beautifully with the piano.
Sourced from the piano, these are organic ambiences which add instant space and depth without having to fiddle around with endless sound design tools.
Instant gratification, if you will.
These samples sound great on their own but there are also additional parameters to shape the sound to make it your own.
Use the Morph knob to blend between both sections or push to 100% for ambient bliss.
