Pianobook community sample libraries

If you did not stumbled across this awesome community project yet, you definetely should have a look at it. In particular if you are into anything sound design or film scoring related.

“Pianobook is a collective sample project inspiring musicians to embrace the magic of sampling and share their creations with the community.”

pianobook.co.uk

If offers a sheer number (520 at the time of writing) of sample libraries free to download and use. The actual content is not limited to piano libraries but meanwhile contains quite a range of different acoustic instruments or even voices and some synthetic stuff.

While centered around Kontakt capabilities when once started, it meanwhile offers also downloads in EXS or Decent Sampler format, at least to some extend. On top, it is an open project and invites everybody to also contribute to the library.

One should definitately check out the upright pianos to discover some real gems. Also the “found sounds” section reveals some great discoveries. To get a glimpse and more easy access to the library as a whole, I strongly recommend the according YT channel.
