    Need to identify the make of this intimate piano

    Hi Everyone

    I posted this on the piano forum however the replies are slow so I though it might be better here.

    Could you guys try to identify this piano sound? I've been trying to figure this out for awhile because I really like this warm and close sound and I am trying to get a similar sound library.

    MP3 #1> http://web.singnet.com.sg/~shockmx/home.mp3 (Middle to low octave)
    MP3 #2> http://www.snowhearts.net/home2.mp3 (Covers higher notes)
    These two songs are found in a korean drama's OST (Princess Hours) incase anyone wants to know.

    After doing more listening I believe this could be a Yamaha or Fazioli (Both have certain similarities in the sound colour)

    There are 3 questions i hope everyone can give their take:

    1. Based on the audioclips, which piano brand produces such a sound?
    2. What kind of mic-ing and ambience is this? (Close perspective?)
    3. Based on 1 and 2, what would be a good piano library to recreate such a piano?

    Thank you everyone

    Nice warm sound!

    I'd have no trouble believing that it was a Yamaha ( played lightly ) if you told me it was.
    I don't know much about the Fazioli sound.

    I'd not guess it was a Steinway.

    Have you listened to Ivory?

    Hard to tell the exact brand but I'm sure it's a Japanese or Correan piano: the sound fall quickly after the attack and is weak on the harmonics side.Probably close miced also.

    yah but sometimes, with the right music, that's the exact sound you want! Sometimes, I detune (with a plug-in) a piano sample down an octave, throw in some light distortion and heavy compression, and run through a icy reverb. Sounds like the undead playing piano, and it's simply lovely!

    Found some videos with the band members performing another track and had a similar piano sound... see a Yamaha.. so i guess it should be a yamaha...

    Anyway, what are the better yamaha libraries around?

    Thanks

    I think the best sounding and best tuned Yamaha C7 sampled grand is by Sampletekk. It is called TBO.
