Ok, the grand piano I\'m working on is in the next beta-phase, and I need your input!
As I said before, the goal with this piano is to have an instrument that has very distinct notes, it should work well in a mix. It\'s not much ambient, it\'s very much \"in your face\".
When working with the same samples day and night for too long, you get a bit deaf, so that\'s why I need new, fresh opinions! Sooo..... pro\'s and con\'s.... let\'s hear them!!!
Demo 1, you know this one! It\'s from the digital piano shootout. No reverb added.
Demo 2, Ok, a bit of Mozart... not really what it was intended for, but I think it works for this too! I\'ve added a bit of reverb since I think the style needed it.
Demo 3, Pianobar\'s open! A bit of boogie, a small room added.
Sgarsson, Yes, it does have a bite, doesn\'t it! It\'s not a Steinway though, it\'s a Malmsjo, a 9 feet, (I think, in the metric system it\'s 275 cm) from the mid 20\'s. I also think that this is very close to release.
Sharmy, I\'ll check your demo out [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
The Boogie Woogie was played by a guy with stromg hands, so there\'s a lot of banging on that one.
Passacaglia, The upright, the Rain Piano, are in it\'s very final beta right now, We plan to release it next week! Price $95. You will be able to get it from our online store, and since we have shipping points in both US and Europe, you should probably have it in your hands late next week/early the week after.
Franky, trying to steal our customers.... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Seriously, the upright I\'ve made are quite different because the way it\'s set up. Your pianos are more \"normal\". Both products are nice priced, why not get them both and then you\'ll have all the uprights you ever need!
Straight up Worra ..... when will the uprights be available and how much will they cost .... i\'m ready to buy .... sell me the beta .. i don\'t care .. lol ..... been waiting for upright samples for ages!!!! and i\'m sure you will produce a playable, affordable product.
just tell me where to send my credit card number :-)
and if it is going to be a while, can someone suggest another upright sample library
Grand Piano sounds great Worra, much better than some other pop rock grands i\'ve heard out there [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
