Does anyone know some good piano samples for pop? I'm talking Lucie Silvas - pop. www.luciesilvas.com - listen to the piano in her tracks. Grand pianos good for this sort of pop tend to be quite light, dry, with not too much mud whilst not sounding at all like midi. Any ideas? You can hear that the malmsjo is too dark/reverby and would not sit in a lucie silvas mix. Bosendorfer 290 tone isn't right for a pop mix like this. Old Lady is good within the mix, but on its own doesn't have enough sustain to sound good.
I would prefer not to alter tone to that sort of degree using eq, it always ends in not sounding right.. this is down to the piano samples themselves.
If anyone can recommend something they know to sound like the piano on the luciesilvas site that would be great. Or deltagoodrem.com, or check out the tones of any other mainstream piano based acoustic pop artist.
