Native Instruments releases The Giant
Native Instruments has announced the release of The Giant – a new piano library for Kontakt.
You’ve never seen or heard a piano like this. THE GIANT captures the sound of the world’s biggest upright piano to deliver something even bigger: An intense, dynamic playing experience with a sound that’s nothing short of inspiring.
From urban pop, film score pathos, soft piano ballads, driving rock riffs or dim jazzy timbres, the untreated sound of THE GIANT instantly satisfies – straight out of the box. Add detailed control options and a dark, cinematic version of the instrument, and THE GIANT’s distinctiveness is matched only by its versatility. Meet your new go-to piano for virtually any style.
Sampled in amazing detail, THE GIANT is a unique instrument with an extremely strong low end, crystalline highs, rich overtones, plenty of punch, and a colossal sonic spectrum – from the devastating to the sublime.
This powerful sound is easily enhanced and modified to fit your productions. 40 meticulously-tweaked presets provide production-ready starting points, and detailed control features let you precisely shape the sound in every dimension, making the instrument supremely versatile, whatever the project.
The original instrument is the Klavins Piano Model 370i. The ‘i’ stands for integrated – this huge upright piano is built into the wall of a room, effectively securing the soundboard. Over three meters high and weighing over two tons, the Klavins Piano Model 370i provides a soundboard that’s roughly twice the size of a typical 9′ concert grand piano soundboard.
Works on Kontakt 5 and Kontakt 5 Player.
