Monastery Grand free Grand Piano library - payoak - 09-10-2020

Hi everyone!
Did any of you tried this sample library from Melda Production? I think it sounds pretty damn great, specially considering is 0$ price tag.

I believe it requires their proprietary sampler which comes at price. Speaking of pianos I recently got XLNs Addictive Grand Piano that came along free with my Focusrite Scarlett. Even though I am not sure if it is any better than Sonivox's EightyEight which I also got from a cheaply priced bundle some years ago.

It works with the free MsoundFactory Player and I think that is on pair with the Addictive Keys range.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll check it out! That said, I'm not a piano player and any sufficiently detailed piano library sounds much the same as the next to me Wink

I will definitely give it a try then! Doesn't hurt to have options!

I do play piano.  Not exceptionally well, but enough to have very strong preferences about what I like in a library.  I've settled on Splendid Grand Piano as my favorite.  I love the way it sounds, and it also is one of the best playing instruments I've found.  The balance is almost perfect.  I also created my own modified version of it that adds string resonance, since that was the one significant feature missing in the original version.
