  • 1Description
The Hans Zimmer Piano from Spitfire Audio is a performance-oriented virtual instrument based on samples of pianist and film composer Hans Zimmer playing on a concert grand at the hall of Air Studios in London. The sound library encompasses 88,352 samples recorded via over 60 microphones in 16 different microphone positions. Four spot mic positions offer varying shades of immediate, intimate, upfront sound; four mid-mic positions offer a more set-back sound; and a variety of room and surround mic positions give an acoustic sense of the beautiful space in which the samples were recorded.

Four preset selections of mics with specific overall sound characteristics have been created: full & bright, light & bright, low & weighted, and warm & rounded. The mics within the selections can be combined and further customized to give you the sound you want. Within each selection, as well as within the mic sets and the individual signals, four different modes of playing have been portrayed.

First of all, the standard playing techniques of the piano are covered, with multiple round robins and dynamic layers. Round robin sampling involves recording multiple samples per note, so that when a note is played repeatedly, it is not triggering the same sample. Secondly, the Percussive FX patch offers an array of percussive piano effects including lid, body & side hits, rattles, scrapes, and drags. Next, the Various FX patch renders other piano effects such as harmonic shorts, plucks, brush strokes, muted piano, and paperclip staccato. Lastly, the Super Soft patch captures extremely delicate performances; when playing on this patch, the dynamics of your playing are artificially compressed within the super-soft range. A folder of distance-compensated signals enable you to create mic combinations which capture both the detail of the spot mics and the spaciousness and perspective of the room and surround mics without sacrificing sound clarity, by compensating the slight delay of the more distant mics.

The Hans Zimmer Piano has been designed to be scalable to variously-powered systems where settings such as the number of round robins and active mics can be adapted to the hardware you are working on at any particular moment. The Hans Zimmer Piano runs on the Kontakt 5 Player, which is included with the library.
General Controls Panel
This is a detailed but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. You can choose, for example, how many round robins you want and how you want them to behave, or how memory is organized alongside pitch options.
