Sound Dust Release Sponge Piano 2

Sound Dust have released Sponge Piano 2, a beautifully recorded character piano with the warm thump of strings deadened by a well sponged thumb. Sponge Piano 2 is available at the intro price of £28.00, increasing to £40.00 after the promotion, that’s a 30% saving.

What’s new in version 2:

  • Completely re-edited, tweaked and polished sample set with 3000 ish new samples & 4 proper Round Robin layers
  • Octave up, note off & record crackle or tape hiss articulations
  • Engine based on the glorious FELT DULCITONE
  • GLUE control a multi layered compression and saturation on one knob
  • Drag and drop midi recorder
  • 50 great sounding snapshots
  • Lots of under the hood improvements
  • K5 & K6 versions have different architecture, they are the same but different – so use both if you can.

Sponge Piano is what happens when you multi-sample a conventional piano in an unconventional way.

The aim here is to create a new piano timbre. Something which carries the weight, emotional oomph and play-ability of a traditional piano. But with something a little different going on.

A bit Agnes Obel , a hint of Tom Waits and with death metal possibilities.
