  • DDX10 FM synth.

Piano in 162


This sample bank is an absolute staple for any producer looking to ‘polish’ their sound and is a beautiful sample library of a Steinway Model B grand piano. If you’re looking for a sound with a bit more colour and a little less versatile, then go with Ivy Audio’s Piano.

Whipped Cream Sounds

The 'Piano in 162' - A staple of classical and orchestral music is a sample library of a Steinway Model B grand piano, available in Kontakt, SFZ, and Korg Kronos formats.

This VST requires a full version of Kontakt to run. If you're looking for a completely free option, download the SFZ version and load it into a free sampler like Plogue Sforzando.

Versilian Upright Piano


This is one of our favourite Piano VSTs, purely because of the sound. It’s one of the closest to out of the 5 to a real-sounding Piano but lacks the option to alter the sound (like ADSR, Reverb, etc). If you can ignore that then you’re on your way to some incredible sounding productions!

Whipped Cream Sounds

The Versilian Upright Piano is a clean sampling of an upright piano designed as a light-weight sketching piano developed by Versilian Studios.

This Piano VST includes:

  • 3 velocity layers with 2 RR
  • sampled in tritones with a pair of wide, close mics
  • Full delays of up to 30 seconds were recorded

With a broad dynamic range and a bright, clear tone, the upright can still display a soft side when needed.

Hopefully one of these piano VST's listed above can help you as a musician, artist, or sound producer wanting to get creative.
