Isolation Piano – Tubes & Tape

Isolation Piano – Tubes & Tape

Story

I’d been sat doing very little while suffering from the COVID-19 Virus, so I spent some time processing and putting together this instrument.
It’s again my Model O which isn’t in pristine condition, and is very old so rarely all working.

I’d been repairing some tube mics and working on a Neve 8078 project at home, so while testing these, created the library.
Some of the samples (mechanism) are re used from my past libraries.

The mics were: Telefunken U48, KM84 Pair and a Blumlein format BBC ribbon mic.
I put these signals through the Neve 8078 Sidecar for MS EQ, with SSL-G Compressor on the master, which adds to the effect heard.

This time I used an 8″ driver as a sub-kick attached to the underside of the piano, this collected low end information,
and I passed it through the Pultec EQP-1A to cut and boost the low band of this signal.

Auto-tracked through the Studer A80 into PT. I left it re-tracking overnight, took a couple of attempts!
It’s a warm, rich sound which revolves around the tube/ribbon mics, analogue gear and tape.

Enjoy, and stay safe.
James.

This is one of the most natural and emotive piano libraries I’ve ever used. It’s soft while avoiding the issues with using felt pianos, but expressive – the microphone choices are great, even if it doesn’t have a hundred thousand samples. It is very detailed and you can hear the high quality process. I would quite like a UI to adjust the sub and mechanism maybe next time?
Simply brilliant, please make more of this type!! I gravitate to this, time and time over all my commercial purchases, I would love to see some more pianos or microphones from you soon.

This is professional quality sampling, and a truly inspirational character piano. I wish it had velocity sensitive damper noises, and then it would be perfect. It’s similar to cinesamples piano in blue.
