There are so many sampled pianos on the market today and you as a musician have the benefit to be able to choose from the multitude of different brands and sounds.
Many of the sampled pianos are great, wonderful grand pianos like Steinway's, Bosendorfer and other truly amazing instruments.
But, sometimes you need something different.
Let's face it, you wouldn't choose Pavarotti to sing rock and roll, would you?
Also, you probably wouldn't let Robert Plant sing "La Boheme"…..
Mind you, it probably would sound great in a way, but it's probably not what you're after!
Now, most of the sampled pianos on the market today are "Pavarotti's", but if you want a "Plant"-piano you don't have that many choices, until now!
The Vertikal is a upright piano recorded and designed to do the job when you need that little extra "umpf" in your songs. It can be rock, blues, jazz, gospel or anything that needs the extra attitude. Shortly, when you need something not that "grand".
In the MkII both microphone perspectives are included so you can use them one by one, of mix to taste!
We also added hammerback and pedalnoise samples.
Then we added our True Resonance feature and used Kontakts scripting facilities to make Real Time/True Pedaling, Sympathetic Resonance and some other nifty features, and, Voila: Vertikal MkII
- 16 velocity levels
- More the 3900 samples
- TimeVel Release Technology ™
- Sympathetic Resonance
- Controllable volume for key/pedal noise
- Controllable volume for Sympathetic Resonance and True Resonance
- Two microphone perspectives
- 24 bit 44.1 stereo samples
You'll need minimum Kontakt 4 full version. It will open in the free player, or with a player that came with another Kontakt instrument, but only in a demo mode. That means that there's a time limitation/session.
