I'm trying to find some piano sound bank -for my childish experiments with sound - the most desired form is of course a number of .wav files, each one corresponding to a piano key - being a record of a real piano key sound. Is it possible to find such a thing? Preferably without any copyright issues.
The university of Iowa has recordings of separate piano notes in
Note that most SoundFonts bend each sample a few notes each way to cover the entire keyboard. If you want one .WAV for each note on the piano, the Fruity Loops Studio demo allows you to make the files by just opening the piano roll, making the note then saving it in whatever format you like.

The Yamaha OLPC Disklavier set also exists.
