    Layering Pianos

    Anyone had good results layering different piano samples to create a unique sound? I've experimented from time to time, usually with less than desirable results. But I recently layered the Bards Bose with the Vintaduio C7 for a gospel piece, and with the right blend, I'm getting a nice chorused, fat sound.

    Here's a very brief clip of the intro:

    Anyone else played around with this?

    I use the Artvista Malmsjö with the PMI Bösendorfer 290 as the Malmsjö doesn't have fortissimo layers and is often too dull-sounding to fit in a mix. The Malmsjö softens the Bösendorfer nicely and gives it more body. There are differences with the tuning from note to note so the blend isn't perfect. Still in a somewhat crowded mix the illusion is very believable.

    Thanks, Sam.

    I typically use the close mike sample of the Vinaudio Y C7 because it just seems to work better in the stuff I'm doing. But the player perspective is very satisfying to play. I don't know of other libraries that give you that perspective. In general, this library is one of the top piano libraries out there. Very realistic, and very playable. The Yamaha grand sound is everywhere...pop, country, even classical and jazz, and this library delivers the next best thing to the real instrument.

    The Vin c7 and the Bards Bose are my two favorite samples...so mixing them together had to happen..
