A lovely new free Upright Piano VST from Audiolatry realistically samples a Kawai piano. The piano plugin has a sweet tone that would fit perfectly with Lo-Fi hip-hop, easy-listening pop songs or chill dance tracks.
The free piano VST plugin has a very simple interface, so it’s quick and easy to get to grips with the virtual instrument. There’s a few features like reverb, attack and release, and a high pass and lo pass filter. You can also adjust the volume of the keys release.
For a free plugin, the tone is very pleasant – no tinny toy piano sound here. Two velocity layers give it an airy feel. The no-frills sound is discreet enough to perfectly provide a gentle melody or fuzzy chords to anchor a lo-fi beat.
At the moment the plugin is available as a VST and VST3 for Windows only, though Audiolatry say a Mac version is in the works. You can pay what you like for Upright Piano, or get it for free.
