Tell your story faster than ever

This upright piano library is far from being clean and prestine and this is why you’ll like it!

From the classic upright piano sound to a more intimate one and with experimental and lush sounds, Hammer and Felt will help you getting ideas faster than ever.
With a simple yet effective interface, tweak the sounds to suit your composition or bring them to new sound design worlds. Including room noises, subtle breaths, key noises, tape hiss and much more, this library is full of fragility and personality.

2 upright pianos

A lovely Pleyel upright piano that was sampled using a pair of small condenser microphones placed at ears height for a nice stereo imaging.

While the Hammer patch has the microphones placed at the player level, Felt has them as near as possible to the hammers in order to get all the mechanism sounds, imperfections and felt sweetness giving you the feeling of being inside the piano.

Texture patches

Layer the piano with one of the 24 beautifully crafted experimental patches from the Texture instrument.
While some of these patches are simply the upright pianosamples mangled and played thru various machines for unique patches, other are new recordings of the piano played in less conventional ways such as hitting, tickling or muting the strings.


Hammer and Felt interfaces
  • Mix the different layers for the perfect balance.
  • Gently apply character with tape saturation or destroy the sound by adding lot of it.
  • Play with tape wobble effect for a nice lo-fi sound or to go crazy and experimental.
  • Delay and Reverb controls for extra fun and rhythms or to add beautiful shimmers.
Texture interface
  • Multimode filter with Resonance amount to sculpt the sounds to your needs.
  • Attack and Release controls to get sounds going from lush pads with slow risings to more percussive sounds.
  • Tape saturation, Delay and Reverb controls.
