Free Amateur Piano Library!!! Sep. 1st, 2013 @ 10:09 AM Reply

I have released a free piano library which is very basic, hence why I am releasing it for free...

The design/UI is very novice like and not very professional as seen on the website.

Here is the link: http://brandonspendlove.wix.com/centralcomposersnew#!freedownloads/cyjn

The piano library consist of 5 different velocity layers (FF, F, M , P and PP)

There is nothing fancy about different mic positions or any advance script but I wondered if any one would find it useful for a free product. I personally think it could be useful for beginners or 'Pop' composition.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

This instrument patch will only load on Kontakt 5.0.3 versions and above so don't bother downloading it if you don't have that version or above...

All the samples are in .wav format (I should of converted them to NCW for size compression but oh well...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

The download is split into 2 parts.

Each part contains half the samples for the instrument patch and if you don't follow the installation instructions clearly then it will not load properly.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT NOTE: DOWNLOAD PART 1 AND 2 OF CENTRAL PIANO. THESE BOTH INCLUDE THE SAMPLES FOR CENTRAL PIANO.

Once you have finished the installation from the setup.exe Drag the samples from PART 1 into the installation Directory (Default: C:/programfiles/CentralComposers) inside the Central Piano folder.

Then drag the samples in PART 2 and you will be asked to merge the folder. If this is not done then half the samples will not load in the instrument patch.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The setup.exe will install the instrument patch and other resources to where you direct it after typing the serial password (Sorry for time wasting, I just wanted to test it out... Just C+P (<-- Haha get that? Central Piano??....) the serial key.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope some people enjoy it! I want to work on a more advance script and different positions for variation and more choices for you guys soon. I might also work on a Metal/Rock riffs library similar to 8Dio's Apocalypse Guitar (I think its that)...

Yes, I am shit at web designing so any comments on that would be appreciated to make it better!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, what is the best way to sell libraries online?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for reading!

I will be updating the site to centralcomposers.com once I have actually made a couple of libraries worth selling. I HAVE a long journey of sound design and ideas to come!!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

HINT HINT, I am also looking for a partner to work with on Kontakt Libraries. I want to learn as much as I can because I really want to take this seriously and get in depth with selling Kontakt Libraries.

Over the past year, I have been inspired by 8Dio and Daniel James. I really enjoy Daniel Jame's videos and his new product is insane, I wish I had it.

Weird, I can't play any of your stuff on Kontakt, despise having the latest version. Gonna take this up with NI forum about the problem.

Hmmm, you have the full version right? Not the player?

That means a lot to me. Thank you.

I would sell it but I have had big problems with figuring out to sell big downloads.

SO I thought I would be nice and the first library I am selling will be on Disc just to save hassle. (And it works out the same price of setting up a account to sell big downloads online!)

I'm glad to see that we have a "sampling community" here on Newgrounds. I will take a look on this later :)

Your Wix is down.


Also, what is the best way to sell libraries online?

Be as friendly and calm to piracy as possible. Do offer a free version and a paid version.

I mean, how should I upload them? What is the best choice to upload big files like 4GB once someone has ordered a product?

I use a setup called Cartloom (also used by Embertone), combined with the Amazon S3 hosting service, both of which are very reasonable in cost (S3 only costs what you use per month). S3 lets you host tons of stuff and Cartloom distributes it and a license key for you.
