But with so many choices on the market, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. That’s why we’re here to tell you about Hammers + Waves, the keyboard sample library that goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Every single note for each instrument was recorded at 16 velocity levels using top-notch microphones and preamps.

Not to mention, Hammers + Waves comes with various types of modulation, granular synthesis, and other quality built-in effects to shape the tones in nearly any way you’d like.

The piano collection I’m selling includes a 7’ conservatory grand, 52” upright piano, and vintage pianette. Plus, an abundance of effects and sound-sculpting tools are included.
The Yamaha C6 Conservatory piano was selected for the Modern Grand due to its beautiful, balanced tone. This model sounded great when played alone and also held its own when accompanied by other instruments.
