Steinberg is kicking off the gifting season by letting you have LoFi piano, a new virtual instrument, for free.
Don’t expect a huge grand piano sound here; LoFi piano is built around samples of an upright that were captured by multiple carefully selected microphones. These were chosen to ensure that the tone has a mixture of warmth and grit, and puts a contemporary spin on a vintage piano sound.
You also get six “dusty” effects - Flutter, Compress, Saturate, Reduce, Filter and Reverb - which have just one control each. The built-in MIDI chord pads are designed to make it easy for you to create progressions.
LoFi Piano runs inside Steinberg’s free HALion Sonic SE plugin for Windows and macOS (VST/AU/AAX) and you’ll need a MySteinberg ID if you want to download it. Find out more on the Steinberg website.
