This was the piano that my parents had since the early 1970’s. We got it from a neighbor who was moving and it was quite dark sounding already. Many years later, in 2004, they decided they were going to give it away, so I came out to sample it.
I didn’t have much of a setup at the time for mobile. I used an MXL condensor mic, plugged into an apogee MINI-me that went s/pdif into an M-Audio flash recorder! I had a small CF card- perhaps 1 gig, and this is the result. I did 2 velocities and attempted release, although it never properly triggered- so if you can solve it let me know! Also, as I only had one shot at this, the day I came to sample, it was raining, which you can sort of hear during the sustain.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Just trying it out
I had a few hours after doing some practice of something for my band and thought, I fancy some play – so i opened my DAW and opened up some samples to try them out. Using the Descent Version of the Everett Upright Piano I wanted something soft against a strong sound. So this is what i did.
