Converting a piano from Kontakt to Soundfont

Post by mirka »

Hi all,
I have found this kontakt steinway piano, which sounds quite good according to the demo, on youtube,

I make music exclusively with Soundfonts, and i would love to have this piano converted to join my other Sf2 instruments.
I have read that there are software which allow this kind of conversion.
It would be great if someone among you had one of these tools and a little time to spare for that !
Thanks

Thank you for the tip Shupacabras, but this really is "chinese" to me !
I had hoped someone could do it, for me and for all those who use soundfonts and miss a nice steinway piano.
You can hear how it sounds here,

It is a smaller (lite/demo/custom ?) version (1.2 GO) of the original Galaxy Piano, which size is 5 Go.

Have you checked Salamander Grand Piano? For me it sounds great, and it is free, ready to sfz

Yes i have, thanks, it is good but it doesn't correspond to the music i do, jazz and cinematic, where i need a darker, mellower, "woodier" piano sound, therefore Steinway.
I use one which comes from John Nebauer's site "soundfonts4u", it's ok, but i wish i could use the one i submitted for conversion, which is in an other league !
