Major update to Pianobook site (Not a deal)

Recommended Posts

FYI There was a major update to the Pianobook site yesterday to V3.  Easier navigation, interaction, review system, forum, etc.

Pianobook was started by Spitfire founder Christian Henson. It is a site where you can download for free. samplepacks for Kontakt ( full, not player), Decent Sampler, SFZ, EXS24.

All instruments are uploaded by members for use without restrictions. There are currently 650 instruments available. Ranging from obviously Pianos (in various tastes from felt, upright, processed),  Synths, Orchestral, Ambient, Experimental. And downright odd.

It's a huge resource for free. And worthy of your time. Members are encouraged to submit there own samples (I'm going to try and sample a West African Balafon, and Kora I picked up when encountering  music out there a very long time ago).

Is the site curated or are there no limits to the samples people can post?

You can't use samples derived from S+S synths (copyright).  And anything that would have rights ie.dialogue, filmscore, etc. People are banging traffic signs, cutlery, false legs. Sampling their guitars, pianos, cellos, burps etc. It's now possible to alter with outboard and within an application beyond recognition.

Maybe I should sample my old Meinl Weston convertible marching tuba.  I only have a condenser mic.  I could sample my pet cockatiel.
