Free Novel Piano by Sonic Atoms

The free Halion library Novel Piano by Sonic Atoms is a beautiful and warm sounding upright piano. Every note sounds different and has its own character which gives very natural and organic results. Get is for free here. It has its unique sonic quality which fits perfectly into calm and intimate music genres.

Sonic Atoms recorded an elegant contemporary upright piano, in semi-dry room. Which gives our instrument nice and present close sound. But You can still hear a room reacting to that sound. The most gorgeous sound recorded is with mute pedal (Novel Piano patch).

It sounds amazing from up close, but room sound gives it, even more, character and depth. It may not be perfect for all scenarios though. That is why there is another set of samples recorded traditionally without mute ( Scoring Piano patch) to make our instrument more flexible and useful in more everyday situations. A smaller but very important part of the Novel Piano library is sustained pedal mechanism, which volume can be changed directly from instrument GUI.
