I remember a really nice Jerry Coakley Piano, but I believe if you have a decent converter like Translator, you can use your favorite Kontakt Piano, and just delete many of the useless layers that cannot be triggered during a perfomance anyways.

They can be accessed in curve drawn envelopes and such in a sequencer but then they sound like a Windows Piano ( fake ) which IMHO defeats the purpose of a dynamic/natural performance.

If I can find the DLd I had made I will alert you, but I have moved on from the STS stuff and use PianoTeq Pro 4 which also has excellent EPianos, Clavinets, etc.
It uses less resources than Kontakt even when NCW samples are being used ( lossless compression).

For Drums, I got an AKAI CD called Heavy Hitters. Sampled from the drums of the likes of Alan White and Tommy Lee. These play well on a kit triggered by a pro drummer.

Check out the 'John Perri Scope Setup and Demo' tab for audio demo of STS drums.

I have one or two of these somewhere on my harddrive,- in Kurzweil format I think.
Was very usable for AKAI S-1K series samplers too and 16MB only.
CD Xtract converts fine.

There´s some fine and small footprint sample library stuff from the past worth using, especially live and when loading times become a deal breaker.
That´s why I want to get STS4000 working perfect on XITE-1 and in SCOPE 5.1 or upcoming SCOPE 6.
