Wavesfactory, the company behind Mercury Piano and a host of other unique Kontakt instruments has announced The Tack Piano.
Inspired by their earlier instrument W-Honky, The Tack Piano is completely re-sampled from scratch, it sounds better than ever and is now a completely authentic tack piano featuring a new GUI. Equally at home in music, sound design or FX, the Tack Piano is like no other.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the instrument, Wavesfactory founder Jesus Ginard says;
“Everybody loves the sound of the good old Mrs Mills piano from Abbey Road Studios. This is the sound we were going for and we think we’ve nailed it!”
