I know this seems like a impossible subject to address, since there are so many songs and singers, but in the search for a good piano sample, I seem to have forgotten that while I do want a piano for solo work, I also want something that can sound natural and strong beneath and with a singer. In other words, just piano and voice.
What sampled piano would be good for Carole King, if it was only her and the piano. (She could still start a small riot if left alone onstage with a piano. Can\'t say she made the best choices on her new album.) What piano with just it and for that matter Julie London? Ella Fitgerald? Jonie Mitchell? (Remember the piano sound on Blue?)
Don\'t misunderstand me. I love the new Post piano and the raw sound of the new Bos. At the same time, though, I have trouble imagining them with a singer.
A bright Yamaha is usually assumed to best for popular music, but even is this is true (Not true on Blue, are the bright piano samples out there good if you want to sit down and sing and play? Anyone have some recordings of the pianos with a voice on top?
