Browsing through the library, I find it incredible useful to have demos for all the instruments. And one name I see again and again is “Da Fingaz” who has done a load of very revealing demos.
Just want to say: Thank you, Marcus!13 January 2021 at 1:14 am #2758Marco IannelloParticipant
He is incredibly brilliant, and very helpful in showcasing the various sounds17 January 2021 at 10:15 pm #2767Zachary MillerParticipant
His work is fantastic at showing _just_ the instrument. Although contextual work is helpful, sometimes I just want to hear the instrument, and he always fits that bill.9 February 2021 at 5:02 pm #2817
Wow. I’ve never paid attention the forum tab here. After all these years, I didn’t even realize there was a forum. I usually get here, get the new sounds and get out.
Markus: Thank you for creating this thread. When I started doing Pianobook demos maybe 2 years ago, I never planned on doing this many. I was hoping to do maybe 50 and then move on. What ended up happening is I made “Pianobook demo” creation as part of my weekly schedule. LOL. Sometimes I would say I’ll do as many demos as I can within an hour or I’ll say I want to get 10 demos in today.
What makes it even more interesting is working around the Kontakt Player limitations (yes, I’m saving up for Kontakt Full or hoping to win a contest with Kontakt as a prize…. I enter a lot of contests LOL).
Thank you, Markus! Great name too!9 February 2021 at 5:06 pm #2818
Marco: Thank you! Sometimes I just start working on a demo without hearing how it sounds. I pick a tempo and key and hit record. I do sometimes have to start over if I realize a sound isn’t mapped out across the keyboard. LOL.
What’s even better is I can repurpose these demos; either building them out into full pieces or pitching them to other opportunities, or sending to producers to make a beat around. So many possibilities.
I figure since I’m not the best at creating sounds and apps, the least I can do is provide a demo.
Glad you find it helpful!9 February 2021 at 5:19 pm #2819
Zachary: Thank you! I also enjoy the contextual demos. I think I’ve created a handful of those too. Every once in a while, I come across a group of Pianobook sounds that I use to create a full demo. Even when I do those, I also share the individual sounds.
When I first started doing them, I also didn’t find many demos showcasing just the instrument so I took that as my main objective. LOL.
I’m glad the demos have been helpful for you!9 February 2021 at 5:25 pm #2820
If anyone is interested in the process I use. Here you go:10 February 2021 at 1:10 am #2821Marco IannelloParticipant
