Eilean Flannel Piano

The Eilean Flannel Piano is an intimate and beautifully imperfect flannel upright piano crafted with meticulous attention to detail. This close-recorded upright piano has a sound designed for intimate neo-classical and film music inspired Hania Rani, Ólafur Arnalds, and Nils Frahm.

Unlike traditional pianos that use felt, the Eilean Flannel Piano features a thinner, high-quality flannel fabric, which produces a crisp and focused sound that retains the beloved felted hammer sound. The result is a more versatile and customizable sound that can be shaped to perfection, enabling it to seamlessly blend into any mix.

Requires the full version of Kontakt 6.7.1 or higher – not compatible with Kontakt Player.

Eilean Flannel Piano - Intimate Felt Piano for Kontakt

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.

At the heart of the design is simplicity and instant inspiration. It is designed to provide an inspiring sound straight out of the box yet with flexibility to craft your own sound.

Piano Section

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:

  • Full | 4 Dynamic Layers / 4 Round Robins
  • Soft and Intimate | 3 Dynamic Layers / 4 Round Robins (Shares sample set with “Full” but remapped and tweaked for softer dynamics)
  • Tape Stretched | 4 Dynamic Layers / 4 Round Robins

Full and Soft & Intimate pianos give you control over key attack, key release, pedal, and pianist noises. All pianos feature a dynamic response knob, and tone knob for quick sound shaping.

Warp Section

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% to turn the instrument into a pad!
