Shipwreck Piano is an audiophile-grade SampleTank instrument library that puts you behind an antique cinematic upright piano with vibey, atmospheric reverbs recorded from several rare and vintage digital hardware units you can also use on any audio track. It includes over 3 GB of sample content and 33 SampleTank 4 instrument presets designed to add character and mood to any composition or soundtrack.
This is not a piano for Chopin Piano Concertos. This is a one-of-a-kind magical instrument for when only something highly provocative and wonderfully unique will do the job. Imagine a vintage upright piano half-buried in the sand on a misty, tropical island, a surviving remnant of a long-ago shipwreck, somehow still intact, in tune and invitingly playable with a rich, warm tone.
Listen to audio demos
Imagine the piano surrounded by mysterious ambiences and otherworldly spaces that let each note roll off into the night, levitating into the air and up into the cosmos. The dark warmth of aged wood and patinaed strings provides a tonal richness full of deep character and filmic style that no ultra-clean studio grand piano will ever be able to achieve.
This is your ultra-vibey cinematic upright piano primed and ready for your next film soundtrack, moody pop ballad, EDM break or ambient experimental composition.
In addition to samples of the upright piano itself, you'll find exotic atmospheres from several highly sought-after vintage hardware reverb units. These sampled spaces are utterly controllable with all of SampleTank’s filters, envelopes and other synthesis functions and are ready to be easily shaped and contoured to each individual track you produce.
And the sampled spaces are also provided without the piano where they create utterly haunting pads and atmospheres of their own. Use these atmospheres as drones, effects or ambient backgrounds in any kind of music, anywhere you need a deep backdrop or instant mood.
Whether you’re scoring films, TV shows, audiobooks or podcasts, Shipwreck Piano brings the haunting atmosphere of a highly playable and utterly engaging antique clavier immediately to your desktop. Pop and EDM composers will also find Shipwreck Piano to be an indispensable secret weapon whenever you need to bring in something out of the ordinary to make your track stand out.
The new SampleTank 4 has been re-designed from the ground up to be every musician’s “go to” workstation for music creation, with a completely new rescalable interface, a massively expanded sample library and a new cutting-edge sound engine with efficient disk streaming, to deliver more powerful music creation tools than you ever imagined. What might usually take dozens of plug-ins can be accomplished right inside SampleTank 4, for lightning-fast workflow that keeps your inspiration going.
Shipwreck Piano works inside SampleTank 4 CS, offering you all the features of the new SampleTank 4* engine and over 4 GB of fresh sounds to get started.
