Prepared Staccato Cartoon Piano

Prepared Staccato Cartoon Piano


I sampled this piano super later one night at my university to help me underscore a cartoon; every note has its own preparation.

I’ve submitted an ‘MVP version’ with just close mics. If this community believes the extra data would add to this instrument, I’m willing to also upload a version with stereo mics included!

Preparations range from simple stuff like bluetack to even muting strings with my hand, which would of course be impossible in real time. The idea is each note is different and a little surprising!

I loved this sample. Incredibly useful for quirky melodic material but also amazing for percussive effects.



A quirky prepared piano for cartoon soundtracking!
