David’s CP70

David’s CP70


This Yamaha CP70 belongs to my friend David, an absolute madlad of an electric guitar player and recording engineer.

The opportunity to record this was very impromptu and imprecise, and so there are lots of little errors in the procedure, like wild screams from the room echoing into sympathetic resonance, and some clipping from the board into the interface. But I love it nonetheless. It took me a while before I was confident in the cleaning of the samples and mapping enough to share this, but I think it is good now where it is.

It has all the things a good CP70 in my mind should have, slightly out of tune strings and a hokey attack paired with an ambiguous dynamic range. I did not provide this patch with any, however in practice this library pairs very well with modulation effects like chorus, and some sharp delay (like slapback). A little analog crunch goes a long way to masking some of the clipping but I find that it shouldn’t be too noticeable. But now it’s yours to play with.

It’s sampled up the circle of fourths with 2 round robins and anywhere from 4-7 velocity layers depending on how hungry I was when I hit the key.

Do enjoy!

Included .nki requires Kontakt 6.2.1 or newer
