Upright Piano Free Virtual Instrument

Upright Piano


Upright Piano is a free virtual piano instrument plugin (ROMpler) featuring a sampled Kawai Upright Piano.

The samples were recorded in 44.1kHz 16bit audio quality. There are 2 velocity layers, which make this plugin ideal for simple piano lines. With its sharp and fuzzy sound, it will fit well in dark and sad melodies, in genres such as Trap, Hip Hop & RnB.

For elaborate scores, we recommend our Grand Piano XXL plugin.

Upright Piano sports an easy-to-use GUI. You will notice typical controls such as attack & release, global gain, also a simple reverb. The “Tremolo” section consists of an LFO section with LFO destination (pitch, expression, or pan), rate & depth. Underneath there’s a simple lowpass/highpass filter with cutoff.

If you’re wondering what’s that “Key” little knob, it simply sets the amount of noise for keys release.
