Prepared Piano - This is not a prepared piano in the John cage sense of the term. It is simply some fun I had with the Yamaha C7 from Bolder Pianos. I used glass rods, strips of rubber, screws and magic markers (to the best of my recollection). \"Muted Piano\" utilizes the rubber strips to mute the strings.... this is a good percussive sound with pitch. \"Hi & lopass velocity layer\" uses the highpass filter when played lightly, as you play harder you hear the lowpass filter come in for a more full-bodied sound. \"Glass Rod Piano shifted down\" simply maps the samples to a key an octave higher, yet the correct pitches are retained by re-setting the unity note. The effect is something that happens at a slower speed and sounds a bit \"deeper\". \"Glass layer\" uses the original pitch plus the layer which has the unity note re-set as a layered program. Most of the \"FX piano\" samples were made by throwing a magic marker into the piano while the sustain pedal was depressed. \"Use that Mod Wheel\" mixes the muted effect with the glass effect. \"Mod Wheel caution!\" mixes all three effects... you can make some glorious noise with this program!
