    …I wanted to add The Emporer and King piano as one to try also. Very nice character about it.

    I wanted to add that there are a ton of free synths that can help you do sci-fi effects also. Just search free vst synths and you’ll find a lot of options. For background to your audiobook “pads” are probably they type patches/sounds you may want to investigate. I’m not well versed on synths and patches, but I’m almost sure there are some sci-fi synth pad patches out there for some of the free instruments.

    Hi Bob, I’m not really a piano player – but I just went through a listening to a lot of the pianos that I had downloaded and wanted to share ones I think you might want to try out: Broadwood, Church Steinway, English Classic, MVP prototype, Schwechten Grand (darker piano, I really like it’s flavor), S.K.Y. Felt, Spring Piano , Winter Felt, Ye Olde Piano. All of these are straight-forward pianos and have interesting sounds to me.

    If you try some of these I’d love to hear which ones (or others) you feel have the best playability. I’m not a good player, so I’m not a good judge of the playability aspect – so if you’re inclined I’d be interested to hear which ones you feel have best playability.

    thanks,

    Thanks for this. I’m just starting w/ sampling so doing things manually helps me understand the process, but I can tell the time commitments could be a huge deterrent as projects become more ambitious and sample counts increase. I don’t use reaper currently (have tested it, but I didn’t connect with the complexity for my creative stuff), but if I really get into sampling and building instruments I could see using it + automation just for this task.

    First set of samples turned out nice. Used harmonics and processed them lightly to thicken them a bit. Resulting instrument sounded nice – alot like an 80s string synth.
