4 Unique Pianos For Any Genre
Fun fact. There aren’t many useable, let alone good free piano libraries. I was putting together a list of the best free pianos for our blog and YouTube channel, and after trying out about 20 freebies, I was shocked at how bad most of them are. The ESW team sampled this piano about 6 months ago, and we decided to make a high quality, modern sounding free piano library.
Why Denver? It’s admittedly not the first city you think of when you picture a grand piano. But Denver is the city where Echo Sound Works started. Denver is where I went to college to study music. That’s why we jumped at the chance to sample a Piano from my old stomping grounds.
Kontakt, Ableton, & Logic X versions
Over 1,000 samples including key noise and hammer noise
Round robin sampling
4 unique variations (presets)

These are examples of the 4 different Kontakt presets
To embody the vibrant music scene in Denver, we decided to make 4 unique patches in the Kontakt version.
Denver Grand Main - Just what you’d expect. An immediately playable and inspiring grand piano sound
Denver Grand Cassette - We resampled a lot of the piano into a Tascam Portastudio tape recorder and the results are incredible if you’re into LoFi and Chill.
Denver Modern House - This is our take on the classic and iconic House piano from the Korg M1
Denver Grand Ambient - There are a couple special granular layers giving this piano a unique sustain
