Soundiron has announced the release of a major update for one of their oldest releases, Old Busted Granny Piano. They tell us that this complete overhaul features lots of mapping tweaks, a new user interface and integration of all of their latest technology. Here's what they have to say:
Her tone is watery and faded. There are a number of broken and dissonant strings, especially in the upper register. The wood is pitted, faded and banged up and the ivory is missing from a number of keys. Every key lands with a loud, wobbly, wooden thud and and lifted with a hollow rattle as soon as you lift your finger again. Sometimes, she seems creak and groan in the middle of the night, for no reason at all really. Clearly, the years have not been kind to her looks or her voice, but her soul truly has aged like a fine wine.
Weighing in at 1.4 GB, Granny Piano v2 features 13 flexible and intuitive Kontakt presets, over 700 samples and dozens of custom convolutions integrated into the GUI. As always there is a range of automatable EQ, Reverb and sound-shaping to expand on the creative possibilities that this library offers.
Pricing and Availability:
The update is free for current owners of Granny.
For new customers, it's on sale now for only $39 through Nov. 20th. (MSRP $49 USD)
