Dark Piano is the first of a series of Libraries that has been designed to provide an expansive range of dark and suspenseful textures whilst providing controls to allow the Composer to easily invent unique sounds.

This Library is both a WAV Sample Pack and a series of Virtual Instruments. The sounds comprise a large collection of Glissandi, String Scrapes, Deep Booms and Sub Rumbles, all manner of Metallic Clangs, Beats, Chimes and Resonances, Mid-range and High Metallic and Wooden Percussive Hits, and other interesting Textural Sounds and Loops.

The initial recordings for this instrument were made by acting directly on the strings of a 1963 Kemble MinX piano. Hours of sound design followed to create the variety of dark sounds contained in this library.


Easily generate new textues by allowing the Random Function to fill the Player. One click sound generation!


Audition is a unique Sample audition and manipulation system for Kontakt 5.3 +

In Audition Mode ALL the Samples of the Instrument are laid out across the MIDI keyboard - one sample per key.

Simply audition all the Samples by playing them. Then press a button on the GUI to add any Sample to the Player. The Sample is now assigned to a Group and spread out across 2 Octaves.

There are 4 Sample Groups each with their own controls for Volume, Pan , Stereo Width, Pitch, HP and LP filters, Chorus, Distortion and Delay.

With this system it is super easy to find samples and blend them into new textures.
