Wavesfactory, the company behind Mercury Piano and a host of other unique Kontakt instruments has announced The Tack Piano.
Wavesfactory founder Jesus Ginard told us, “Everybody loves the sound of the good old Mrs Mills piano from Abbey Road Studios. This is the sound we were going for and we think we’ve nailed it!”
Here's more details direct from Wavesfactory...
Inspired by their earlier instrument W-Honky, The Tack Piano is completely re-sampled from scratch, it sounds better than ever and is now a completely authentic tack piano featuring a new GUI with top- notch features that makes it unbeatable and a dream come true for tack piano fans like myself. Equally at home in music, sound design or FX, the Tack Piano is like no other and a must-have addition to your piano collection.
