Chamber Strings is a highly detailed and flexible chamber string library (6,5,3,3,1) recorded by expert recording engineer. A range of exciting and revolutionary techniques for recording longs, as well as freshly conceived scripting concepts allowed the natural dynamic movements of the musicians to be maintained, while remaining playable and intuitive. Windmill Lane is a uniquely wonderful scoring stage, used on many orchestral, film and TV projects. Utilising the dryness of the room, Light and Sound libraries feature multiple mic positions with natural air absorption. In line with the Light and Sound philosophy which celebrates maximum flexibility, the sound can be shaped more freely than with samples recorded in a more ambient environment. To recreate the natural bleed of a real recording environment, the close mics of all sections were left open and set at their natural panning and levels while recording each instrument section. The “Bleeds” mic adds a unique and realistic flavour to mockups and compositions.
We don’t know much about this particular instrument’s history – a friend of Soniccouture, Tom Heywood ( Discography ), who runs Normal Bias studios in Berlin, found it in one of the city’s many flea markets. It was sold to him by a vendor who specialises in DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik) era collectibles. It is a child’s toy piano, made of plastic. It has a wonderfully clanky, bell like tone with very loud, distinctive key-off sounds as the keys disengage. The instrument was recorded with a spaced stereo pair of vintage Neumann mics, in Normal Bias Studios, Berlin in August 2011.
Vintage Toy Piano is a charmingly beautiful, classic toy piano. Deeply sampled and featuring two microphone perspectives. the character of the instrument works well for both solo and ensemble applications, including film, classical, children’s, and pop music. With over 1800 samples, the 30-key natural range of the instrument has been chromatically sampled with up to 10 velocity layers and 3 round-robins. For your convenience, we have extended both the treble and bass range slightly beyond its natural range. You can expect a clear, bell-like treble register, with a gently-tapered, natural bass register. An additional 50 instrument sound effects and 25 instrument presets are included. Designed for the full version of Kontakt 4 or 5 (Download Only).
Well, I probably messed around with that little toy piano a lot but I just came to realize its value when I was already an adult and found it again on my basement. It’s not perfectly tuned, it’s a worn and aged little piano, it’s got a lot of character, it makes some noise when we release some keys, and it’s beautiful. Obviously we at HeadlessBuddha Samples sampled it through some worn cassette tape but this time we wanted to capture more subtleties and details than we usually do. I think it’s our best Kontakt instrument to date and we’re very proud to present it to you.

The Kinderklavier is an iconic sound found in commercials, TV, soundtracks and pop music. From cute and innocent, dark and twisted, to pop and rock, Kinderklavier is a truly versatile library. This Kinderklavier was deep sampled and close-mic’ed to capture all it’s subtle nuances. As usual, we deeply sampled the instrument, every single 25 notes with 8 round robin and an average of 6 velocity layers per note. The keys of the Kinderklavier had such unique character that we had to multi-sample and include them as release triggers with multiple round robin and velocity layers.
