That\'s very nice. It definitely sounds like an upright. I\'m curious as to how many velocity layers you\'ve got there? Sounds like a lot. I think that if you used your sampling techniques on a great grand in a great hall, you\'d have something really marketable (if you plan on selling your stuff, that is).
Keep up the good work!
The version of my sampled piano on that recording only has one velocity layer, but careful use of velocity controlled low-pass filtering does seem to give a good impression of more.
The unusual aspect of this sampled piano is the way sustain is handled (i.e. sympathetic string resonance).
I may make it commercially available at a very reasonable price if there is sufficient interest in it, but I\'ve never produced a commercial CDROM or CD before and am not sure how much is involved in doing so.
I have actually recorded the samples for several dynamic layers, but I need more motivation before undertaking all the programming involved !
Ah! I first listened to your example on my wife\'s iBook speaker After listening closer to it in the studio, I can hear the filtering. However, on cheap speakers, the dynamic filtering fooled me!! That\'s pretty impressive. I actually thought you had a 16 layered piano!
Anyway, for an aplication that requires the upright piano sound, I\'d buy your library. However, just using as a piano to play with, it reminds me of all of those countless hours in the practice rooms down in the basement of the music building in college. That\'s kinda depressing

It reminds me of all the countless hours I should have been practicing down in the basement practice rooms. That\'s kinda even more depressing !
