The English Felt
The English Felt – by Tim Didgiunaitis
Following on from last years English Classic. I have great pleasure in introducing the English Felt. Same piano, different recording technique. After watching Christians felt piano experiments I thought it only fair to have a go myself. I cut three pieces of felt to the sizes that I needed due to the design of the piano and stuck the felt to the inner workings of the piano with blu tak. (high tech)
I recorded the piano with two Rode M5 small diaphragm Condenser microphones going in to the Tascam Model 24 hybrid analog mixer/audio interface with just a touch of the analog compression. This in turn fed in to logic and Christians recording template.
There is just a slight bit of room on the instrument and a low cut filter. Nothing more.
I really enjoyed recording the piano again and hope you find it useful. Needs the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1.
