IK Multimedia Fractured Piano SampleTank Instrument

SampleTank library featuring mesmerizing and unorthodox prepared piano sounds for the modern composer with 37 SampleTank 4 instrument presets and 5.4 GB of sample content
MFR# 1049-261

Product Description

IK Multimedia Fractured Piano offers a wild variety of altered keyboard sounds. Designed to stir emotion and build tension, the library features sci-fi, cosmic and eerie sounds, action-driven percussive sounds and acid keys, along with dystopian harpsichords and other imaginary or futuristic sounds. It includes 5.4 GB of sample content and 37 SampleTank 4 instrument presets perfect for anything from film scoring to modern pop music production or general funky vibes.

Don't try this at home

Most of the “Piano Howling” family of presets were created by actually screaming into the piano frame, and some were produced using other tricks.

Cymbal Felts were used in different positions pushing and damping the short strings section before the hammers, to produce 4 different sounds (“oscillators” in the sound element) for the “Piano Felt Bass” and other presets using the piano sustain pedal.

A metal pipe was placed on the low octaves to resonate and create an industrial percussive sound, and different metal chains and other objects to create “undisciplined” harpsichords

The samples had been subsequently generously “synthesized” and processed with the SampleTank 4 engine, to create several presets. The preset description carries the name of the original (“mother”) sample.

If it ain't broken, keep trying

The library was recorded and produced by Filippo Gaetani and Florian Weixelbaumer in the style of the groundbreaking avant-garde John Cage techniques on a beautiful Bösendorfer grand piano recorded at their studio in Vienna, Austria.

Additional editing and sound design were provided by Florian “Flohzirkus” Hager. Vladyslav Hryhoriev contributed with extra presets. Icon artwork by Marco Divic and Filippo Gaetani.

The microphones used for the sampling sessions were: AKG 414, Neumann U47 FET, Shure SM7, Schoeps Boundary BLM 3, CMC 6. Mic preamps: Neumann V 476 B, Api 512C, Manley Dual Mono.

SampleTank 4

The new SampleTank 4 has been re-designed from the ground up to be every musician’s “go to” workstation for music creation, with a completely new rescalable interface, a massively expanded sample library and a new cutting-edge sound engine with efficient disk streaming, to deliver more powerful music creation tools than you ever imagined. What might usually take dozens of plug-ins can be accomplished right inside SampleTank 4, for lightning-fast workflow that keeps your inspiration going.

Fractured Piano works inside SampleTank 4 CS, offering you all the features of the new SampleTank 4 engine and over 4 GB of fresh sounds to get started.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
