    Bardstown Bosendorfer short piece

    Here\'s something along the lines of my older style, a bit more new agey. It\'s called Ravages of Nature. Don\'t crank up your speakers too much, it\'s a bit dynamic and gets louder towards the end [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Technical stuff: the patch used here is the Bosendorfer \"Heavy\" Full Map 2 with velocity filter. This and the mod filter patches are my favorites. I added just a slight touch of reverb, using SIR and a live hall Lexicon PCM90 impulse. But really, this piano doesn\'t need any reverb at all.. I cut the reverb out once just to hear it, and it sounded great still. Hats off to Kip, this is really an outstanding library.

    Nice. I love dynamics...and the quick transitions from soft to loud are very effective.

    And of course, the Bards sound wonderful. That\'s a nice tone you\'re getting.

    Hey Sam, Chiming in my 2 cents worth.
    Really nice opening. Good melody. The two dissonant chords at :25 and :29 threw me a bit. Like I\'m one to talk about dissonance though. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] And the same for the dynamic drop at :44. Just a bit sudden.... for me. Otherwise:sweet.

    Did you play it all in? Or as Sharmy says, composer keyboards.
    It\'s such a sweet sounding lib. I wish I knew how to play. I am using it though Kip. I swear! Don\'t take it back.

    christian,

    It\'s intentionally kind of a strange piece.. the odd chords at :25 and :29 are intentional, to throw a bit of tension in there and move away from the \"pretty\" intro. The big dynamic drop at :44 is to greatly contrast the turbulence that starts at :33.

    Yeah, the piece was played in live with no MIDI edits/tweaks.

    Thanks for listening, guys!

    dissonant chords?

    christian whatcha talking about?

    there\'s nothing in there that is going off the charts, buddy. All is legal.

    But then beauty is in the eye of the beholder so i\'ll shut up.

    I really like the first part, didn\'t think the louder section was as magical.

    And once again, really love the tone of this piano.
    Man, everytime I buy a piano lib I tell myself that\'s it, no more. I\'m not a piano plater so having one good piano should be enough.
    But no, you guys have to keep coming up with great libs and force me to spend some more [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Yep, it has a really nice tone.. you can, of course, adjust the warmth using the mod wheel (it applies a low pass filter to it).. see bottom of this post for mp3 examples.

    Here\'s a complete articulation list, by the way:

    Bosendorfer Imperial Full (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Lite A (44 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Lite B (29 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Lite C (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Mod Filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Vel Filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial FF (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial MF (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial MP (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial P (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Pedal Up (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Pedal Down (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial UFO (29 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Bar room (29 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Mod Filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Vel filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Pedal Up (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Pedal Down (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Full (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Lite A (44 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Lite B (29 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Lite C (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Mod Filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Vel Filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Pedal Up (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Pedal Down (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial UFO (29 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Bar room (29 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Mod Filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Vel filter (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Pedal Up (88 regions, A0-C8)
    Heavy Bosendorfer Imperial Full_Map2 Pedal Down (88 regions, A0-C8)

    And to illustrate the different tones you can get from this piano:

    http://www.samhulick.com/BosImpFull.mp3 (straight, no filters)
    http://www.samhulick.com/BosImpFullVel.mp3 (low pass filter applied to low velocities only--my personal favorite)
    http://www.samhulick.com/BosImpFullMod.mp3 (rolling the mod wheel up & down during recording so you can hear the high & low extremes)

    Sam,

    the dynamics in your composition are executed so nicely with this Bose. At one point, it was scary but I thank you for that crescendo warning.
