    New Pianet T Kontakt Instruments

    ...and the first new release from SampleTekk in 300 years.....

    ST PianeT

    The Pianet T was one of several incarnations of the Pianet made by Hohner between the 50's and the 70's, the T model emerging in the 70's.



    It's a small electric piano that has a rather wierd way of producing sounds!
    The plastic of the key is mounted on a pivoting metal bar, onto the back of which a slightly sticky silicone rubber pad is slid. The pad sits on top of, and in contact with, a flat metal reed (not a tine) and presses it down so that the reed is under a bending strain. When you depress the key, the pad lifts, not only allowing the reed to spring straight, but also pulling it upward for a fraction of an inch before the adhesion is broken.
    Kind of cool!

    The sound is sometimes described as a musicbox on steroids, a duller Rhodes or a mix between a Rhodes and a Wurlitzer. Anyway, I've had one for years, and I've finally got around to sampling it.
    It will come in Kontakt format only, (I will make HALion and EXS24 formats also, and the will be offered to the customers as free updates).

    So, here's a first demo:

    The library will be release in a few days and will be priced 49 USD

    Nice .. I've always had a "soft spot" for the Pianet T (just purchased it)
    I added a bit of EQ to bring out the "nastiness" a bit
    (and another Rhodes is always welcome Thanks Worra)

    Glad you like it! I've always liked instruments that are a bit "unusual", I find them great for adding personality to a track. Pianet are sure that kind of instrument.
