    Hello, my moniker (nickname) here is Krielly, and I live currently in Germany.
    I discovered PianoBook a few months back around the time DecentSampler became available for Linux. I’ve been playing guitar for about 18 years, and in the last few years started to learn how to produce music with Reaper.
    As someone without much money and also using Linux, I find the accessibility of PianoBook libraries and DecentSampler really great and helpful to have lots of new sounds and textures to play with. I hope one day also to create some sampled instruments of my own to contribute but for the moment am still struggling along to get equipment together, learn, and make some music that I like along the way.
    I’m also an independent filmmaker and will be composing the music for my next documentary.
    This is my Bandcamp site, I only have one song there so far but hopefully once I have enough fitting tracks together for an EP there will be more: https://forestrage.bandcamp.com/releases

    Paul Williamson

    Hello! My name is Paul and I compose Viking Era Dark Age style music. I am from North East England and just wanted to pop a message on here to introduce myself! If you would like to take a listen to some of my work here is a link to the HYMALAYA Youtube channel where I have started posting both music videos and visual type stuff to go with my tracks https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRohkWLVomg92U9FMbK3hTg

    I look forward to getting to know some of you and making some new friends! And please send me your composition work as I always love to hear and listen to new music!

    Hello all, there is very little in the way of a reception committee in the forum but make yourselves at home…

    Here’s more if my story.

    In an unusually hot UK, the pots are piling up at the side of my sink and I will be using the electric lawn rake to try and remove as much moss as I can.

    Don’t worry about my pots though, as I have enough pots and cutlery to get through until the weekend when we are expecting cooler temperatures and fresh breezes.

    Angella Woodman

    Hello. I am from Canada. Im an audiofiction producer who very recently has started to use Reaper. A lot of my interest is based on wanting to create my own music for the audiodrama as well as hopefully figure out a way to make voice alterations using Reaper (and ongoing exploration of plugins).
    I am VERY new to Pianobook but I’m looking forward to determining how to use its many components ! 🙂
    If anyone has an introduction to Pianobook for Reaper website I would be forever in debt to you sharing it with me haha

    Hey. How do I put in a request for an instrument.

    I wonder if a spring door stop would be a cool item to sample. Maybe if someone has got one to sample, they could look into it (I unfortunately do not have one)

    Peter Flint

    Hi there, I’m Peter Flint. I’ve been a visitor and contributor to Pianobook’s library of instruments for over a year now but have never posted in the forums before, so I’m looking to communicate more within the community! I’ve been a media composer for six years now and throughout the last two of those I’ve found a huge amount of fulfillment in the process of sampling.

    My home is in rural Leicestershire in the UK where there is a lot of talent in the videogame and film industries, though there is a drought in funding for the latter. I’ve been working with those and the local arts community throughout my university education and beyond. While I didn’t study music after high school I took a Masters degree in digital art where I focused on interactive sound installations, and I think this is where my enthusiam for sampling comes from. Creating satisfying interactive sound formed from personal stories is such a joy and I’m so happy to share it with this community.

    Good evening all,

    Just wanted to say Hi, and thank you for all the work and effort that goes into these,
    Im 42 from south wales, not originally, from kent, but haved lived here since 1989,
    i first felt music at a young age, and picked up a guiter at around 17.
    Have done the band thing, circa 2002 – 2008 ish, then got fed up of it, did a sound tech degree.
    Then fell ill [booooo!!] and since then ive been just at home constantly on cubase etc, writing, mixing, recording demo’s
    learning from others.
    Anyway im just getting into Kontakt, I studied a bit in uni but it was Reactor and all that faff, just didnt interest me that much tbh,
    but samples, loops, i like them, i know where i stand.

    Anyway nice one guys and girls and whatever you may identify as,

    Hello Samplebook.

    I’m new to this resource. It’s wonderful.

    I’ve got a bit of learning about what tools: software and hardware to use.

    I coded a multi-sampling synthesizer about 12 years ago. And I recorded many of the samples for it.

    I’m now playing samples either in MAX, Bitwig, Pigments or Ableton software on a Mac or on a Deluge synthesizer.

    I would like to build up to creating some multi-sample instruments using original recordings and sharing them if there’s anything that rises to that level.


    Hey there, Film composer from Berlin… havent contributed yet, (I will one of these days, I promise…) just wanted to express my gratitude for this so cool community and thank you for the existence. Share the wealth. Love is music, music is love.

    Chris Neville

    Hello All,

    My name is Chris, and I am from Chicago. I degreed in Music Composition years ago, but have primarily made my living from live playing the last few decades. Thankfully, over the last couple years I have been getting a steady increase in composing work, mostly for video games, but a couple indie films and a commercial or two as well. I am hoping to move my focus more and more to composing in the coming years.

    I came to Pianobook through Spitfire, as many of you did. Christian’s vision and drive for this project is a real inspiration, and I hope to be a contributor soon!

    Glad to be a part of it!

    Ranil Goonawardene

    HI, I’m Ranil and I’m from Sri Lanka. I’ve been working as a composer/producer for awhile now. Happy to find pianobook:) Came here on Christian’s recommendation. Was not disappointed. Looking forward to sampling some of my guitars and putting up here soon!

    Mari Ferreira

    Hi, I’m a middle aged girl, yoga teacher, mother of kids with special needs, and I love music. I don’t know how to read or compose, but recently discovered this site, and well, I don’t know what I’ll do, but will try to learn all about music samples and maybe upload some of my own in the near future!

    James ALDEN Berry

    Hello from Los Angeles!

    My name is Alden.

    I am a samplist who is spending most hours of the day developing sample libraries.

    I am currently on the 12th of October, 2021 traveling around Europe to sample musicians. If you want me to visit. Message me here or instagram [email protected] and I will come to visit and make a library with you.



    Hello from sunny Stoke.

    I’ve been inspired to have a poke around on here by Christian and his YouTube channel.

    I’m £1100 into 3 Strymon fucking stompboxes entirely because of his paranoid warblings.

    Good luck with Pianobook 3.0 – you’ve defined something truly wonderful and it simply can’t fail.
