The Vintage Upright sound library features a carefully sampled Östlind & Almquist piano, a classic Swedish brand dating back to the late 1800s and widely known for its quality, craftsmanship and heritage. This instrument was built in the 1930s and captures the essence of the timbre in a well-built upright piano. The frail, silvery treble, the bright, distinct mid range and the focused, round bass, all painstakingly captured in a world-class studio facility.

EZKEYS – SOUND LIBRARY OVERVIEW
A carefully sampled Östlind & Almquist upright piano
Recorded at Studio 9, Sveriges Radio, Sweden using only the best of the best in modern and vintage equipment
All sounds are designed to be mix-ready. Just pick a preset and the sound will sit right in your mix!
Uncompromising dynamic response for great playability
Includes Sympathetic Resonance based on real samples
The included signal chain presets are based on high quality effects from Overloud. Effects used range from reverb to tape simulation and distortion. You can adjust each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters.
The default and all-round sound maintains the natural tone of the piano. Add EQ and reverb as you please.
A true bypass preset that represents what the piano sounded like from the raw recording.
For when the piano plays the leading role and is allowed to take up space in a song, still preserving the natural acoustic qualities of the sampled instrument.
Gives you the feel of an old piano in a living room. Adjust EQ, ambience and room size to your liking.
A slightly brighter and more reverberant sound. Controls for the EQ and reverb amounts.
High and Low:
The separate high and low cut filers let you decide the frequency range and sonic size of the piano. Along with the ambience control, it effectively moves the piano back and forth in the mix.
Analog tape does things to a piano that works well in a mix, so we could not resist this preset. Taylor it with controls for tape saturation, body and ambience.
Inspired by the ’70s. With the chorus and delay parameters, you can take this sound from rock to ballad.
Old school hi-fi. Goes from mellow but clear to sharp, without sounding harsh. Control the amount and the size of the room.
This preset emulates an old bar room piano. With the EQ on max, you get a sound close to a tack-piano with nails in the hammers. The detuning and piano noise knobs lets you decide the amount of maintenance this piano has seen over the years.
Utilizing the subtle but effective harmonic and dynamic goodness of running the piano through a 100 watt tube amp on a low gain setting. Phaser, reverb and attack controls.
