    Hey everyone,

    I went ahead and made my first virtual instrument for Pianobook. I sampled our family’s King Upright piano. It’s totally out of tune, not the most beautifully sounding instrument, but it was great to learn on. Now I’m going to get it tuned and hope to make a better one.

    I uploaded the instrument to Pianobook, but if you want a sneak peek before you can download it here: http://www.justincarmony.com/pianobook/Hello_World-King_Piano-Justin_Carmony.zip

    Any and all feedback is very much welcomed. (There is also a video of me where I share my journey making it for Christian’s #nerdingfortheweekend if you want to witness my newbness in video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yn9nsyXVEO8)

    Things I hope to sample in the near future (when travel restrictions are lifted):
    – Mom’s Baby Grand (that is actually tuned and sounds wonderful)
    – In-laws old organ – it’s the kind that someone else needs to operate the pump on the side.
    – Brother’s Bass Ukelele – Its a fun/easy instrument to play that has a clean sound to it.

    There are some other interesting things I’ve thought about sampling:
    – The Newsroom – I work for a media company with a newsroom, it might be interesting to get some ambient sounds from it
    – The Printing Press – Likewise, we have a massive printing facility that makes really interesting noises when it runs.

    Anyway, thanks to everyone who helps make this community a thing. I’ve found a new hobby that I’m starting to really enjoy. Two months ago I had no idea where to start when sampling something.
