    Hi, not really sure where to start, but I want all to know this is one of the best sites I’ve ever come across. Pure creativity and experimentation. As a result, cool things will happen here.

    About me: produced and composed National US TV and Radio ads for 30 years. Owned and/or built recording studios. Started out as a recording engineer. Worked on Neves and SSl’s daily with incredible union musicians and singers. Used any great mic you can think of. Point is I’m Age 57, I go back real far and know some stuff. I even use to sample directly into a Linn drum machine and Emulator. I thought is was really cool that you could buy 1 chip with one drum sound on it for $100 and put into a Linn drum 2.The two things I am extremely grateful for is, I never bought a synclavier or fairlight. I work in gaming now and hope to get into custom trailer work as 330sound.com Point is, there is way too much “about me” and that’s not what this site is about so we will leave it there.

    With that, hello. The samples here are great and inspiring in more ways then one. I’m glad I know about piano book.

    Thx to all those who contribute here. Keep up the great work.

    Hello everyone, my name is Richard under the producer name ‘Jupiter Odyssey’.
    I have been a nightclub DJ since 2002 and began producing my own remixes and tracks in 2009. The progression in my passion to find emotion in music has grown in recent years and this year finally decided to dip my toes in the cinematic genre with the help of many Spitfire Audio VSTs. I found Pianobook through Christian’s Vlogs on YouTube and was massively inspired by the amazing scores that one person could produce through a computer and keyboard.

    Good Evening (or what time it is for you),

    my name is Hartmut Paul, based in the middle of Germany.
    I´m a mechanical engineer, and a music hobbieist, but with much dedication and some expertise in recording. It all started with doing some scoring in MicroLogic, and got some elevation after winning a recording give-away from KEYs in 1998 (19″ PC, 80GB HDD, etc, Gadget Labs 8/8 I/O AudioCard (anyone who remembers them…?). I´ve produced several choir projects since then, writing arrangements, and often doing overdubs/virtual additions for those.
    Since the early days I´m a big fan of Christian´s Vlogs, but only now (after contributing to Winter Voices 🙂 ) I started downloading my first “Pianobook´s”

    So on Monday I found out about this wonderful place…and finished downloading some really beautiful sounds yesterday. Just wanted to thank all of the super talented producers for these sounds…I look forward to making some interesting and weird music with them!

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    I’m a hobbyist musician from Virginia in the USA and came across your site recently. Amazing stuff on here! Thanks to all of you who have shared your samples / instruments with us – they are super-creative and very inspiring. Maybe one day I will be as cool as you all and make something of my own worthy of sharing here… 🙂

    I starting playing cheap Casio keyboards when I was a kid in the 70’s/80’s as they really started to hit the market. Inspirations for me are everything from Pink Floyd / W. Carlos / Isao Tomita (RIP) / Vangelis / to modern classical from the likes of Max Richter / Jóhann Jóhannsson (RIP) / Nils Frahm / Ólafur Arnalds, to jazz/prog/metal/ambient/edm and lots in between. Musically my real love has fallen into the dreaded “New Age” category LOL, but now I think it would be classified as psybient/chillout. Anyway, I bought a brand new Yamaha DX7 in early 1986 (still have it of course) and a couple more instruments followed, and it was all-consuming for a long time from then. Until real life happened…you know, school, girlfriend, work, marriage, 6 kids…LIFE!

    Fast forward a few decades or so to 2015 (still married until my wife finds out how much I’ve spent on software since Black Friday hahah), and I’m picking up some pieces of kit here and there, and putting together a modest setup. I find all your stories and creations super inspiring, and as I learn to play again, I hope to incorporate some of them into my routine.

    Thanks again for the freebies – they are most excellent.

    PS – Mod – please delete post 900103 above – I tried to edit it and I could not…sorry for the double-post!

    Hi, I am a music teacher, violinist, piano player and composer.
    I am looking for sound libraries for my students to use in their musicianship development
    and I have been following Christian and his Spitfire Audio samples for a couple of years.
    I am happy to join this community and to learn from your experience,
    so to grow as a better teacher as well!

    Happy new year to all of you, we hope a better year!

    Hi y’all, my name is Enrique, I am from Argentina.
    I worked as a composer, arranger, record producer until 2002, when I branched out
    into DVD authoring and then cinema/video post-production. Now while in pandemic,
    I found myself with free time in my hands and decided to get a new setup and start
    making music again, oriented to film and advertising.So I’m making this demos which
    I’m sending to my clients (mainly cinematographic producers and directors)
    Best wishes for 2021, hoping it won’t be 2020 S02!

    Hello all!

    I’m Gavin from Australia. An IT/programming guy by trade and long time music lover (grew up raving, interests spread from there).
    Have been playing with music for ~15 years, but over the past ~2 years I’ve started taking this music thing more seriously. Hoping to eventually having music / synths / sounds be my entire income.

    My particular interests are:
    – Sound design (synth based)
    – Music theory (harmonics/generative/mathematics in general)
    – Unique electronic live performance/interfaces.
    – Hardware groovebox/synth – hoarding/GASing/swapping.

    Found this page via Christian Henson’s YouTube channel and he seems like a person with interesting perspective on music, so hoping to find more here.

    Hi there – I’m Neil from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and now that I have Kontact (full version that was on sale over the holidays) I’m so glad I found pianobook, what an amazing resource so congratulations to everyone who’s helped make this place so special.

    I’m primarily a blues/jazz guitarist but have been learning to compose with virtual instruments and push my own boundaries. I perform as Hardwire Speers and have released 9 singles and an ep of classic Christmas tunes since the beginning of November – including one on my Bandcamp account today.

    Once I get a better hang of using virtual instruments I’d like to do some samples for here because it’s been so inspiring to see the cool projects that have been done.

    All the best to you,
    Neil

    Hi everyone,
    Erick here, in France.
    Have just discovered the new “Sampler” aka Dave, and I’ve been waiting for this for decades.
    I have quite a few instruments I’d like to share here, including 2 pianos, although the samples were recorded a long time ago when Hard disks were much smaller and as a result, they’re only mono.
    Anyway, I just need to find out how to save my exs files in relative path, so feel free to point me to a short explanation if there’s one around here somewhere.
    Looking forward to hours of fun with Pianobook, and a massive thank you to Christian Henson!

    Erick
