Native Instruments Noire v1.1.0 UPDATE KONTAKT
Native Instruments has announced the release NOIRE, a new Kontakt instrument that captures the signature grand piano sound of composer and pianist Nils Frahm.
The instrument – which includes both pure and felt preparation versions of a Yamaha CFX 9’ concert grand – was meticulously sampled in the rich ambient environment of Saal 3 in Berlin’s Funkhaus recording complex.
The result is a unique, intense, and evocative instrument, with an atmosphere all of its own.
Two distinct sample sets – pure and felt
NOIRE offers new sonic inspiration for solo compositions, scoring, and more, with two distinct grand piano sample sets.
The pure version presents the clear, unadulterated tone of Nils Frahm’s handpicked and custom-intonated concert grand piano, captured in a renowned recording studio.
The felt version is the same piano, in the same room, but with a felt moderator between hammers and strings, which creates a gentle tone with reduced attack.
Users can sculpt the sound of both versions by adjusting attack, release, resonance, overtones, velocity curve, temperament, and more.
