I created a Kontakt instrument (VST) of a gorgeous upright piano situated in the chapel corner of a Later Day Saint meeting house. I sampled every note creating two dynamic layers as well as 'off triggers' (or releases) to give it a more authentic sound. I then edited and scripted it within Kontakt.

While experimenting with different techniques to record a marimba at my university, I found myself attempting to play it like a piano (as my main instrument is the piano). No surprise the keys were a little big for my hand, but I loved the organic, woody, percussive sound that came from tapping the bars. So, I decided to sample it so that I could play it on a keyboard!
I used a stereo pair of AKG C414s and added a hall reverb to the kontakt instrument that can be controlled with the mod wheel. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
