Old Busted Granny Piano

The Old Busted Granny Piano captures the heart and soul of an old, run-down upright piano with rickety keys, a few broken strings and many decades of hard use and abuse. Sure, there are plenty of other great upright piano libraries out there, with their shining lacquer and pristine strings, but none of them ever captured the authentic beauty of a cheap, dusty, beat up, rusting, long untuned upright piano. This is the kind of upright you remember from your grandma's house.

We captured 3-4 velocity layers on all keys, with added round-robin variation on the two middle octaves in the mf range.There are actually two independent release trigger samples for every note to better replicate the natural behavior of the instrument as we recorded it. Each note has separate string release samples and key release samples.The “key” release trigger is the soft, distant sounding mechanical wooden “thud” that naturally occurs whenever any key is lifted, even after the resonance has faded. The piano was so old and rickety that you'd have to very slowly releases the sustain pedal or all of the hammers come crashing back down on the strings and occasionally even get stuck there if you lifted your foot too quickly. Over the years, our Old Busted Granny Piano has become a bit of a cult classic, finding its way into an endless roster of soundtracks, trailers, commercials and records.

NOTE: This product now includes both the standard Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4 open format presets and the ReFill version, designed for Propellerhead's Reason 6.0.2. This new combo edition is exclusively available here at Soundiron.com only. Owners of previous versions of either format can upgrade to this new combined edition for only $10.

Kontakt & Reason ReFill Formats

This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4 or later. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument software platform. Check out screenshots of our custom graphical user interface for Kontakt in the image gallery above. They provide a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode. Learn more about Kontakt by Clicking Here.

This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player does not fully support it and can only run it in a limited "demo mode". However, the sample directories are unlocked so you can use them in other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats. The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab, or import this library into the Kontakt database and Quickload tools for easy navigation, loading and organization.


The ReFill portion of this library is designed for the full retail version of Propellerhead's Reason, version 6.0.2 or later. We’ve included 22 Combinator and 22 NN-XT presets in the ReFill package, featuring custom front panel user interface controls and artwork. These NN-XT and Combinator presets have been optimized for performance on 32 bit systems, with 16 bit sample data and a slightly reduced soundset to allow for lower memory usage. The sample directories are also fully accessible to allow user customization, import and mapping into other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.

Specifications

  • 1.4 GB installed
  • 719 Samples
  • 13 .nki presets (Kontakt standard open format)
  • 22 Combinator patches and 22 NN-XT patches (Reason ReFill format)
  • 24 bit / 44.1 kHz uncompressed source PCM wav samples
  • Unlocked presets and wav samples allow full user customization
