Drone Piano

Drone Piano is a versatile VST/VST3/AU plugin instrument that brings the resonant tones of an upright acoustic piano to your fingertips. This unique sound was captured during the serene winter of 2015 at the University of Montreal.

Drone Piano offers three distinct variations of the same piano sound for a diverse sonic experience. The first variation features seamless drone loops crafted from the tail end of the piano samples for a continuous, ambient sound. The second variation is the looped piano, where the decaying sound is looped seamlessly, creating subtle and sustained tones. The third variation presents the original piano sound in its pure form, complete with its natural decay.

With the release of version 2, Drone Piano now includes an additional 10 acoustic piano drones, expanding your creative possibilities.
